I didn’t get to watch a lot of movies as a kid. (It’s a long story.) The few ones I did watch left indelible impressions. As it turns out, when you watch the Sound of Music close to 30 or 40 times as a young teenaged woman, Christopher Plummer sticks in your mind. (As does the soundtrack. These are a few of my favorite things…La la la la…) 

I can recognize that voice anywhere, even in the villain from Up. When I saw this trailer, I remembered the Captain I knew as an adolescent, and couldn’t help reconciling that character to his portrayal of Hal Fields. What a career, Mr. Plummer. Well done.
