Julie Andrews on Timeless Appeal of ‘The Sound of Music’ and Her Love for Lady Gaga.

The Sound of Music‘s 50th anniversary has indeed been golden, and Julie Andrews is enjoying every moment. The celebration started last month when the Oscars paid tribute to the Rodgers and Hammerstein classic, with pop queen Lady Gaga bringing the crowd to its feet with a stirring medley of the film’s musical favorites. This week the musical got a re-release on DVD and Blu-ray with a snazzy new collector’s edition. And later this month the TCM Film Festival will reunite the film’s cast in Los Angeles for a special screening as its opening-night gala.

Andrews sounded eternally grateful for the half-century of adulation the film has received when Yahoo Movies talked to her this week. The actress now 79, fondly recalled playing the effervescent governess Maria, who wins over the hearts of the mischievous Von Trapp kids, as well as Christopher Plummer’s strict military dad. She also revealed that one of her very favorite things, as it turns out, is Lady Gaga: Andrews was bowled over by the singer’s performance, especially considering a nervous Gaga told Andrews it was “one of the hardest things she’s ever done.”
