''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}}).

Added DiffLines:

* IllTakeThatAsACompliment: Herr Zeller says he's flattered when the Captain says he would be the entire trumpet section if the Nazis took over Austria.

Features nuns, ThoseWackyNazis, and ''not'' the [[UsefulNotes/{{Austria}} Austrian]] 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''.

Music'' (which is, ironically, also Mozart's hometown).

* 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.]]
