The performance of Christopher Plummer in The Sound of Music was one of the reasons why it was such a successful and memorable film, a film I have seen, like so many, lots and lots of times and could see lots and lots of times more without ever ever getting tired of it. He could not have played Captain Von Trapp better , he acted the role to perfection.
He was certainly his country’s best known actor and also one of his country’s best. Condolences to his family on their loss and to Canada - he represented his country so well for so many years.
