NBC's Sound of Music Live!, starring country star and American Idol winner Carrie Underwood as trilling, hill-hiking governess Maria von Trapp, was like a snow globe with scarcely any flakes.
You could turn it upside down and shake it, really shake it, but no magic ever swirled around that plastic Alpine scene.
I can't imagine it supplanting the 1965 movie, with Julie Andrews singing of warm woolen mittens and larks learning to pray in a voice so purely crystalline it can induce brain freeze.

The braids are pinned on top of her head, and she's wearing a dirndl – yep, Carrie Underwood certainly looks the part in the newly released poster for The Sound of Music.

She's starring opposite True Blood's Stephen Moyer, who'll be playing Captain von Trapp, the widower who falls for Maria when she becomes the governess to his seven kids.
