Re: Christopher Plummer RIP

I find it quite amusing that his most iconic film was one he didn't like while filming it.

Re: Christopher Plummer RIP

He was brilliant in Beginners with Ewan MacGregor a few years ago, also as J P Getty. I can't sit through The Sound of Music, I just think it's awful.

Re: Christopher Plummer RIP

My favorite film is Animal House.

Plummer isn't in that, however.

Same. I worked with someone back in LA who went to school with the little girl who played Gretel and she shared stories about her

I also remember enjoying a sing a long performance of the film at the Music Box in Chicago years back, people came dressed in costume - for a nut of this film like me, the atmosphere & energy hit the spot

"My favorite film is Animal House".

Remember seeing it at a cinema in London's Leicester Square in the 70s with my sister. Funny at the time but it's sooooo terribly dated now.

Perhaps, but it is still a classic, especially if you were a student in a US college in the 70’s.

Have seen it more than any other film, though "the Good, the Bad and the Ugly" comes close.

When things get back to "normal", you might enjoy the Sound of Music tour of Salzburg. A friend of mine adores the movie and said the tour was really fun:

I don’t think I’ve ever seen it but I also never studied in a US college.


I do however love the Sound of Music, it’s one of my all time favourite films.
