    My condolences to a a very great and beautiful actress. As a Marine I recall the movie " Pride of the Marines ". We will surely miss Eleanor Parker. My prayers go out to her family.

    I just finished watching a Judie Garland movie this snowed-in AM. Someone commented "can"t singers act?". Jennifer Hudson comes to mind of a contemporary to Carrie. On the topic of the baroness character, I wonder why the live TV production include a scene with Ms Underwoood "take a Louisville slugger" to her Dusenberg parked in front of the Von Trapp's. I also wonderded who made the decision to rewrite the demographic setting of pre-WW2 Austria and cast an African-American as the abbyess(sp). Carrie is personally who she is, however her roots as an "Idol" winner demonstrates the power of media to control content. The IDOL was created to find a replacement for Natalie Manes. The ClearChannel Communications and Networks interested in ratings are those who need to be scrutinized. Co-incidental with Ms. Parker's death this short time after the airing, I watched Julie Andrews at Carol Burnett's Mark Twain Award show on PBS just recently. As Andrews walked to the mic, "the Sound of Music" played. IT IS HER SONG ! Have we have been asked to "suspend our disbelief" or are we the victims of a propaganda attack?

    I totally agree. Carrie really executed the notes perfectly, but her acting was poor. She'll never amount up to Julie Andrews.

    Carrie Underwood's special killed her.

    Hey, she told people to go find Jesus. Coincidence, I think not.
