** In reality, Georg and Maria were married in 1927, and she had borne two other kids by the time they left. Not only that, but they simply got on a train to Italy.

** In reality, Georg and Maria were married in 1927, Maria only really grew to love Georg romantically ''after'' they had married, and she had borne two other more kids by the time they left. Not only that, but they simply got on a train to Italy.Italy rather than hiking over the mountains.

* AdaptationExpansion: The film takes advantage of its longer time frame, and the fact that it doesn't take place on a single stage, to expand the story - such as Maria taking longer to gain the children's trust, an extended trip through Salzburg, and the kids trying to go and see her when she returns to the abbey.

* AluminumChristmasTrees: Hearing that von Trapp was a naval captain confuses some modern viewers, considering that he lives in a country with no coastline. The thing is, before the end of World War One and the Treaty of Versailles taking a lot of territory away, Austria ''' ''was'' ''' connected to the sea (the Adriatic, specifically), and had a small but well-trained navy with cutting-edge equipment and ships.

* IllTakeThatAsACompliment: Herr Zeller says he's flattered when the Captain says he would be the entire trumpet section if the Nazis took over Austria. Makes more sense when you realize that trumpeters are generally rregarded as egotistical.

* ActuallyPrettyFunny: Captain Von Trapp's reaction to the children's lies about going to see Maria. He's clearly trying not to burst into laughter.

*** In the very next scene, Mother Superior explains that only postulants are prohibited from singing in the abbey. These are full nuns.

* RevengeByProxy: Sort of. In RealLife, the two oldest boys joined the US army and one of them served as a soldier in the US Tenth Mountain Division, fighting ThoseWackyNazis. Though that's more like YouKilledMyFather except it's "you exiled my father."

Has inspired enough pop culture references and pastiches to fill a small article on TheOtherWiki, although there actually isn't one.

''The Sound of Music'' is the famous musical by Creator/RodgersAndHammerstein, based on the story of ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Story_of_the_Trapp_Family_Singers the Trapp Family Singers]]''. The musical was inspired by an earlier, now largely forgotten German movie adaptation of the book and was made into a movie in 1965, with Creator/JulieAndrews as Maria and Creator/ChristopherPlummer as the Captain. In 1991, the book was again independently adapted in [[Anime/TrappFamilyStory a 40 episode anime]] as part of the ''Anime/WorldMasterpieceTheater'' series. A live broadcast of the original stage production starring Music/CarrieUnderwood and [[TrueBlood Stephen Moyer]] aired on Creator/{{NBC}} in 2013, the first live television presentation of a musical since Rodgers and Hammerstein's ''Film/{{Cinderella}}'' in 1957.

* LesCollaborateurs: All the Austrians who are accepting Nazi rule are collaborators, represented by Uncle Max and the Baroness. But the Captain refuses to budge, straining their relationship with him. In RealLife, the majority of Austrians viewed themselves at that time as Germans and not as their own nation (with prominent people in the minority being Austrian nobility like the Von Trapps, who were afraid to be dominated by the largely-Prussian German nobility, Prussia being Austria's {{rival}}).
