R.I.P. Charmian Carr

Charmian Carr, who played Liesl in the film version of “The Sound of Music,” has died at 73.

So long. Farewell. Auf Wiedersehen. Good night.

And yet the actors who played her parents (father and stepmother) are still alive. It had to happen sooner or later, but The Sound of Music has always been my favorite example of a movie where most of the main cast was surprisingly still alive.

Seeing as they were only 13 and 7 years older than her, respectively, that’s not so odd.
