Our American Heritage – Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II

Oklahoma, South Pacific, Carousel, The King and I, and The Sound of Music were unqualified successes on Broadway and in Hollywood.

Who does not know the Christmas classic about the von Trapp family? The Sound of Music is replayed every year on television and is as popular as any Disney animation.

The excerpt below is from the movie version of The King and I starring Yul Brynner and Deborah Kerr. Brynner won the Tony Award for his Broadway performance and stole the Academy Award show when he won the Oscar for Best Actor.
