Fox Home Entertainment have announced the UK Blu-ray Disc release of The Sound Of Music (45th Anniversary Edition) on 8th November 2010. Starring Julie Andrews in one of her most memorable roles, the film adaptation of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s musical follows Maria, a spirited young woman who leaves a convent and becomes a governess to seven unruly children. Her charm and songs soon win the hearts of the children but when their father is ordered to return to naval service, Maria is forced to attempt a daring escape with her new family.
