* ACappella: Both the stage play and the film. Professor Harold Hill teaches the four squabbling members of the school board to sing Barbershop. All of their performances from then on are a capella. "Rock Hill" is the only song not by these character to be performed this way, [[ThrowItIn the result of a late pianist during one rehearsal]]. All the other songs, performed by anyone else, have orchestral accompaniment. (In both the original production and the film, the School Board was played by [[NamesTheSame The Buffalo Bills]], the 1950 International Quartet Champions of the Society for the Preservation and Encouragement of Barber Shop Quartet Singing in America (SPEBSQSA).)

* HideYourPregnancy: The movie had to shoot around Shirley Jones's pregnancy, getting as many full-body shots out of the way as quickly as they could before she began to show. When she and Robert Preston filmed "Till There Was You," on one take he accidentally bumped into her... well, bump, asking "What was that?" to which she replied "My son." Years later, Preston was introduced to Jones's then-grown son and joked that they had already met.

In 1962, it was adapted into a musical film. The film starred Robert Preston, who played in the original Broadway show, as well as Shirley Jones as Marian and a very young Creator/RonHoward as Marian's little brother Winthrop. The film was produced and directed by Morton [=DaCosta=], who'd also directed the original Broadway show, and is more faithful to the show than most musical film adaptations of the era. It was adapted again as a 2003 ''[[Series/WaltDisneyPresents Wonderful World of Disney]]'' remake starring Creator/MatthewBroderick and Creator/KristinChenoweth.

Creator/KristinChenoweth. There have been revivals too on Broadway (some of them were in 1981 and in 2000).
