Julie Andrews' 'Sound Of Music' Interview With Diane Sawyer Is Reason Enough To Revisit Other Elements Of Her Greatness — VIDEO
It's a fact of life: Everything ends, time marches on, and startling anniversaries occur at seemingly the blink of an eye. But one thing is constant: Julie Andrews is amazing, a legend, and an icon.

On Thursday, that will manifest in Julie Andrews reminiscing on The Sound of Music during a sit-down with Diane Sawyer for The Untold Story Of the Sound Of Music.
As with any Andrews-related news, it is our duty as human beings to use this event as an excuse to remember some of the truly great (and sometimes surreal) moments in Andrews' half-a-century as one of the world's most beloved performers.

Then, when she was on What's My Line in 1960:
When she compared nude scenes with Channing Tatum in 2014:
