Crane’s Mill Wayback Machine for April 29: The Number 1 Movie 50 Years Ago Today, Plus More!

It’s time for another trip on the Crane’s Mill Wayback Machine!

Today, we take a look at the number one movie 50 years ago today. On April 29, 1965, the “hills were alive” as The Sound of Music reclaimed the number one box office spot in the country. The musical hit theaters on March 2, spent six weeks at number one, and in a rare move bounced back to the top this week in 1965, on its way to 12 total weeks at number one!

The songs from The Sounds of Music musical and film productions have proved timeless. “Maria”, “Sixteen Going on Seventeen,” “Do-Re-Mi,” and “My Favorite Things” immediately come to mind as songs that have spanned decades, and will likely continue for generations to come.

Plus, here are some famous folks born on April 29:
Duke Ellington – born April 29, 1899
Willie Nelson – born April 29, 1933
Jerry Seinfeld – born April 29, 1954
Daniel Day-Lewis – born April 29, 1957
Andre Agassi – born April 29, 1970
