* AnAesop: Not a crucial one to the plot, but Maria learns that you do not have to completely dedicate your life to serving god in order to be a christian and she should do the things that being a nun restricts her from if she wishes to.

* SLidingScaleofAdaptationModification: Type 4. The only changes worth mentioning are that some of the songs occur in different parts of the film (which in some people's opinion, works better) and Rolfe being [[stripped of his redeeming scene where he decided not to rat the Von Trappes out and does the exact opposite.]]

* AluminumChristmasTrees: Hearing that von Trapp is a naval captain confuses some modern viewers, considering 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 naturally had a powerful navy.

* HollywoodAtlas: Switzerland is ''not'' "just over the mountains" from Salzburg. To make it worse, Germany ''is''. A bit of Germany that happened to house Berchtesgaden, which was actually Hitler's home, or the closest thing an itinerant dictator had to one. It's called Obersalzberg, meaning Mountain-Above-Salz(burg), and by the Anschluss had multiple SS units stationed there at all times.

Ironically enough, that shot in the movie was ''actually filmed'' on the Obersalzberg.

Features nuns, ThoseWackyNazis, and ''not'' the UsefulNotes/{{Austria}}n national anthem. The film is virtually unknown in Austria itself, which is odd considering the English-speaking world knows Austria as "that country from ''The Sound of Music''." The exception being the city of Salzburg, and mostly because of the tourists constantly talking about ''The Sound of Music''.

* FakeShemp: For the final scene where the family are hiking over the mountain, it's not actually Kym Karath playing Gretel. She had gained a lot of weight while in Switzerland and was too heavy for Christopher Plummer to carry, so a double was used.

** The Captain was in the Austrian Navy. But wait, isn't Austria landlocked? It was in 1939 but ''not'' in 1914, when Austria owned Croatia and had a potent navy dominating the Adriatic Sea. The Captain was one of Austria-Hungary's most illustrious World War I heroes at sea. He commanded two submarines, the U-5 and U-14, and conducted 19 war patrols during which he sank 11 enemy merchantmen, captured a French armored cruiser and an Italian submarine, and was awarded the Knight's Cross of the Military Order of Maria Theresa.

* VoiceTypes: Maria is a soprano, but could be a mezzo, as is The Barroness and Mother Superior. The Captain is a baritone, while Max and Rolf are baritone/tenor crosses. The nuns can come in a variety of voice types, from contralto to soprano. The children have similar ranges, but the girls are technically mezzo-sopranos, while Kurt is a boy soprano and Friedrich, being 14, could be a countertenor (Yes. The voice type that has only 1 other role in musical theatre!) or a tenor with a good falsetto, but of course you need a singer whose voice doesn't crack, or even a boy soprano who is tall enough to look 14.... The only voice type that is not displayed at all is bass, assuming that Friedrich is a countertenor, because the Captain has to hit a high G above middle C inSo Long, Farewell's reprise.
