Oprah in lederhosen
It looks like The Sound of Music is also one of Oprah's favorite things...
Julie Andrews and Christopher Plummer will join fellow "Music" stars Charmian Carr (Liesl), Nicholas Hammond (Friedrich), Heather Menzies-Urich (Louisa), Duane Chase (Kurt), Angela Cartwright (Brigitta), Debbie Turner (Marta) and Kym Karath (Gretl) on Winfrey's show on October 29, 2010.
Ironically, three of those child actors ended up in classic Sci-Fi TV series several years later.
Angela Cartwright (Brigitta) went on to star as Penny Robinson in Lost in Space.
Nicholas Hammond (Friedrich) went on to star in The Amazing Spiderman way before Tobey Maguire was capable of being conceived.
And Heather Menzies (Louisa) went on to marry Robert Vegas Urich and also co-star in Logan's Run.
Maria and the Captain must be very proud.
