Minnesota 'The Sound Of Music' Star Makes Masks Out Of Iconic Movie Curtains

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) - A Chanhassen woman is now making a mask connected to her role in the iconic film, "The Sound of Music."

Debbie Turner was seven years old when she played Marta in the film. Fans of the movie remember all kinds of details, including the pattern of the drapes in the 1965 film.

For years, Turner scoured the country for the fabric and finally found it. When the pandemic began, she started using the material to make masks.

"It's mind blowing to me quite honestly," she said. "I put it up on my Facebook page just to see. I have a Debbie Turner Marta from Sound of Music Facebook page and it took off. I think I had like 15,000 hits in a day."

Turner makes scarves and pillows from the material as well. Though she is not currently in the film industry, she still stays in touch with her "The Sound of Music" family.
