Post Keith Michell...imagine a moustached Captain Von Trapp!
Dear "Sound of Music" Fans,

Feel free to discuss the following URL:

What do you think of the video? Have you at least wondered what a Keith Michell and/ or a Keith Michell & Victoria Shaw "Sound of Music" and/ or a Keith Michell & Julie Andrews movie might have been like?

I keep wondering how sexy, and how interesting, Keith Michell would have been, if he'd been cast as Captain Von Trapp.

Thanks in advance for your replies.

Till Next Time,

I want someone who's the deviant version of Fred MacMurray, David Tomlinson & William Schallert....but who has the looks of guys like Dan Haggerty, Kris Kristofferson & Tom Selleck.

Main Role: Performer
Keith michell is one of the fineast actor/singers the stage has ever seen.

Now I think playing Von Trapp would have been a waste for him after his brilliant performnces in Robert and Elizabeth, Man of LaMancha and La Cage Aux Folles however.

He's a very versatile and fine actor. I think he'd have made an interesting von Trapp, but perhaps just a touch too conventional. Plummer did bring a more complex and suave air to the part, and had a deeper speaking voice. ... 1578900182
He made an EXCELLENT Major-General
