Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

Charmian Carr, who played Liesl von Trapp in The Sound of Music, has died at the age of 73. The actor's spokesman said she died on Saturday in Los Angeles, of complications from a rare form of dementia. Carr later wrote a pair of books about her experiences, Forever Liesl and Letters To Liesl. She went on to star with Anthony Perkins in Evening Primrose, the Stephen Sondheim television musical. Carr, who performed Sixteen Going on Seventeen in the 1965 film, said people should consider singing the musical's songs "like going to a therapist. ... They can move around. They can dance and talk back to the screen. They can skip their appointment with the shrink that week."

So did I! Only, I was probably 8 or 9 when I saw The Sound of Music and by that time, she was probably 35 or 40.

Saw that movie in 1965 at the Valencia in Brooklyn with my redhot Italian sweetheart, wonderful memories!
