The Sound of Music Live

"The Sound of the Music" is an iconic film that was part of so many childhoods. It became synonymous with Julie Andrews, who played Maria.

What Darth Vader really said was less of a dramatic declaration and more of a simple response to a question. Luke says, "[Obi] told me you killed [my father]." And Darth's all, "No, I am your father."
