* 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 had a small but well-trained navy with cutting-edge equipment and ships.

** Discussed in the musical, where Max and Baroness Schneider point out that the Nazi movement is coming, but Captain Von Trapp refuses to bow his head to a German when he is an Austrian. Max and Schneider point out that he could at least pretend so that they'll leave him alone.

* TheCastShowOff: Subverted. Julie Andrews spends a good hour showing off her singing and dancing chops before presenting three eggs to the children as if she's about to display yet another talent. Instead, she fakes juggling them and still drops one.

* 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.]]

* 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''.
