** The song "16 Going On 17": is Rolfe sincere in the views he espouses in the song, with Liesl playing along with his naivety to get closer to him, or are they both in on it as a kind of game? This also tends to [[DependingOnTheWriter vary from production to production]].

** The nuns, of course! They dismantled a car to save an Austrian family from the Nazis!

** The nuns, of course! They dismantled a car to save an Austrian family from the Nazis!Nazis! Reverend Mother in particular for being a CoolOldLady that clearly cares a lot for her fellow nuns.


Added DiffLines:

** The finale has the Von Trapps hiking through the mountains to get to Switzerland, which is now known to be a severe case of ArtisticLicenceGeography - and in reality they just got on a train. In the Julie Andrews film ''Film/DarlingLili'', when her character runs for the border, she does indeed get on a train this time.
** Another ''Film/DarlingLili'' one. Julie Andrews claims that the helicopter getting the opening shot kept knocking her over with the force of its blades. In the finale of ''Darling Lili'', her love interest flies low past her in a field, ''not'' knocking her over.
** Maria's shocked reaction to the Von Trapp family having seven children - when you realise in real life that Maria had three more children with the captain in addition to the seven.

** The Baroness says to Captain von Trapp that his cook's good Wiener Schnitzels are making her put on weight. In RealLife Cristopher Plummer put on several pounds during filming in Austria, so his costumes had to be made bigger.

** Several years before being cast in ''Film/TheSoundOfMusic'', Julie Andrews appeared on a Creator/CarolBurnett special where they performed in a parody of the Broadway show. For even more irony, the special and that movie[[note]]and Julie's first movie, ''Film/MaryPoppins''[[/note]] both have the same musical director: Irwin Kostal.

** Liesl asking if she could taste her first champagne at the party, only for her father to say no and send her to bed. Charmian Carr who played Liesl later said that Christopher Plummer taught her how to drink in real life.

* WTHCostumingDepartment: In the NBC version, Maria's dress on her first day as governess looks much nicer than in previous productions, not to mention less consistent with the description given in Maria's autobiography, which means all dialogue about [[EvenTheBeggarsWontChooseIt its extreme homeliness]] no longer make sense.

* InferredHolocaust: The nuns' fate for sabotaging the Nazis' car. At the time, Nazi Germany and the Catholic Church were not on good terms, with reprisals being a real occurrence, meaning the covenant was likely executed.

** Is Georg left heart-broken and harsh after the death of his first wife, only to be awoken by the beautiful music of his children, or was it because he realized how good a good nanny is for them after firing so many? Or does he warm up as he begins to fall in love with Maria?

* AmericansHateTingle: "The Sound of Music" isn't particularly well known by Austrians, with the exception of Salzburg because, well, MoneyDearBoy. Sound of Music Tours are quite popular.

* AmericansHateTingle: "The Sound of Music" isn't particularly well known by Austrians, with the exception of Salzburg because, well, MoneyDearBoy. Sound of Music Tours are quite popular. One of the main reasons ([[ThoseWackyNazis apart from the obvious]]) is due to the fact that the plays and movies replace the Austrian folk songs that most Austrians were accustomed to. Similarly, the works were not much liked in Germany either for similar reasons. (That and the BadExportForYou situation.)
