The Sound of Music
Toronto-born, legendary actor, Christopher Plummer has died at the age of 91. While the actor starred in dozens of films over the years, he’s perhaps most well-known for his portrayal of Captain von Trapp in the 1965 award-winning film The Sound of Music, which tells the story of a governess (Julie Andrews) who leaves her Austrian covent to care for the von Trapp children.

All The Money in the World
Christopher Plummer's movie career spanned eight decades. In All The Money in the World, from 2017, Plummer stars as J. Paul Getty opposite Michelle Williams in a true story about the kidnapping of Getty's grandson. This film is yet another powerful testament to the artistic prowess of this prolific actor.
