Julie Andrews in Austria: hardly an unfamiliar sight, both in movie history and now on New Year's Day.
The Oscar, Emmy and Grammy winner filmed one of her most famous roles in that country, Maria in the 1965 screen classic "The Sound of Music." Along with her elegant and cultured image, that made her a natural to succeed the late Walter Cronkite as host of PBS' traditional "Great Performances" broadcast of the Vienna Philharmonic's holiday concert, and she'll fill that role for the fourth time when "From Vienna: The New Year's Celebration 2013" airs Tuesday, Jan. 1 (check local listings).
"I love doing it," the ever-gracious Andrews tells Zap2it. "The PBS people are very nice, they do this with class and style, and we do something different every year. It's always a learning curve for me, going to new places and finding out about them. And of course, the music is lovely. »
