BEST BETS

NBC and ABC turn over their entire prime-time schedules on Sunday to a pair of classic, Oscar-winning movies--oft seen on TV but well worth another look.

To celebrate the 30th anniversary of "The Sound of Music," NBC will air an uncut version of the film (interrupted by commercials, of course) from 6-10 p.m. on Ch. 2. Even three decades later, it's the perfect film for the entire family.

Meanwhile, over on ABC, Cecil B. DeMille's "The Ten Commandments" runs even longer--from 6 p.m. to 10:40 p.m. on Ch. 4. This 1956 film is the sort Hollywood no longer makes--huge spectacles on a grand scale.

You can't go wrong either way. And the toughest part may be choosing between them--unless you watch one and tape the other.
