Captain Von Trapp Has Left The Building!

Christopher Plummer, the Canadian-born actor both in movies(Hollywood) and in theatre(Broadway) has died today at age 91.

His talent was immense, versatile and diversified. He was very adaptable in getting into roles ,taking each character as his own and becoming each character as well.

He holds the record of being the oldest actor to ever win an Oscar(Academy Award).

He exudes an aura of being debonair, dapper,elegant and handsome on and off the screen, even as he gets older through the years. He is like wine which gets better with age.

I will always remember him as Captain Georg Von Trapp, the stiff, temperamental widower of a brood of 7 offsprings in the movie—The Sound of Music –-wherein he finally met his match with the novice turned governess/nanny named Maria(played by Julie Andrews ,another entertainment icon) to whom he finally opened and gave his heart to.

Adieu, Sir as you travel on to the great beyond. I will always remember you as I hear the song lyrics to Edelweiss.

So long, farewell!

Captain Von Trapp has left the building!

From a fellow Canuck,

  2. Thank you Josie for your beautiful tribute to Captain Von Trapp. May he Rest In Peace πŸ™πŸΌ.

    • You are welcome ,Ally. Slowly, a lot of good old talented Hollywood stars are slipping away.

      • Only yesterday a morning tv show that I watch two of the presenters did a reenactment of Captain Von Trapp and Maria dancing….the dance when they fell in love ❀. Wonderful memories. πŸ™‚

      • πŸ•ΊπŸ’ƒπŸ‘

      • The male presenter is a professional dancer and the female did ballet as a child. Every Friday they have segment called Footloose. πŸ’ƒπŸ•Ί. Little did they know that Christopher Plummer would pass away 😒.

      • By now,they know.

      • πŸ‘πŸ‘

    • Definitely! He is one of a dying breed of Old Hollywood.

  3. Captain von Trapp in the Sound of Music. πŸ™β€οΈ May he rest in peace. He lived a full life.

    • He died while still being able to do what he wanted—acting. He said that he will never retire.

  4. Rip Mr. Plummer. You were one of my favorite actors.

    • Amen!πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸ½πŸ‘πŸΎπŸ‘πŸΏ

  5. Ooooh, that’s one of my favorite movies! I grew up watching that and still, it never gets old! RIP Captain Von Trapp! ❀

  6. That’s sad news, but such a long life he had , R I P.

    • Yes,indeed. Life that was lived to the fullest.

    • Yes,indeed. Sad to see the great ones slowly disappearing.

  7. I’ve seen The Sound of Music many times. But it hit me for the first time as I read your post that, among other things, he switches how he presents himself in terms of face, stance, voice tone, as he falls in love with Maria.

    • Yes, that is great acting ability on his part.
