Julie Andrews Signed Sound of Music Display

"The hills are alive with the sound of music, with songs they have sung for a thousand years....."

 

This magical matted display piece contains an iconic photo from the 1965 classic The Sound of Music and the signature of Julie Andrews who played the role of Maria! The piece has been professionally matted in acid free materials and is ready to be framed. Dame Julie is of course also legendary for appearing in Mary Poppins.

 

Born Julia Elizabeth Wells in England in 1935, she performed in music halls throughout her childhood and teens, always immensely popular. She went to Broadway in 1954 and Julie Andrews became a bona fide star two years later, in 1956, in the role of Eliza Doolittle in the unprecedented hit "My Fair Lady." In 1963, Walt Disney asked if she would like to star in his upcoming production, a lavish musical fantasy that combined live-action and animation. Julie said she would do it if she did not get to play Eliza in the pending film production of "My Fair Lady." She didn't, and so she made an auspicious film debut in Mary Poppins (1964), a huge hit which got her the Academy Award for Best Actress. (Audrey Hepburn, who played Eliza in the My Fair Lady film, wasn't even nominated).
