"This is a lovely moment to mark. I've been saying all along it's like a very bad joke because surely it was only 30 years ago — not 50," she said. "I feel I lost 20 somewhere along the way. A little thing called life got in the way." - Movie star, Julie Andrews said.

"This one stuck because it was very well made with beautiful music and a lot of glorious assets like scenery and mountains and children and an adventure story and a love story and all of that," she said.
