Julie Andrews and The Sound of Music coming to Blu-ray

Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant

“I like rich people. I like the way they live. I like the way I live when I’m with them.”  This is one of my favorite snotty, but true quotes from the 1965 musical THE SOUND OF MUSIC, which stars the timeless Julie Andrews. Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment has just announced that this classic will be released on Blu-ray November 2, 2010 in a 45th Anniversary Edition.  The film has been restored and remastered and will be available in either a Limited Collector’s Set or in a three disc combo edition.  Both editions will be packed with a list of special features that include:
