* EpicFail: Not directly related to the show or the filming, but a theater owner in Korea infamously was able to show the film more times a day... by cutting all of the songs out.

** In general, the
movie is much more well-known than the musical.



*** Also, some stage adaptations have "My Favourite Things" as the song Maria sings to the von Trapp children during the thunderstorm just like the movie, instead of "The Lonely Goatherd".
* AmericansHateTingle: "The Sound of Music" isn't particularly well known by Austrians.
** It's quite well known in Salzburg because, well, MoneyDearBoy. Sound of Music Tours are quite popular.
* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: 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?

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

* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: For the film version, "The Lonely Goatherd." The montage doesn't help the plot in any significant way or form, nor does it help with character development like the musical version, which it was played at the thunderstorm. In the movie version, the montage is just "there" and appears to serve no purpose whatsoever. A Blu-Ray bonus feature discussing all of the numbers tries to at least designate "Lonely Goatherd" as the one that convinces Uncle Max to sign up the Von Trapps for the festival. Although, it doesn't mark the first time he heard them sing, nor does he appear to have them sing it again during rehearsal or the festival.



* NewerThanTheyThink: "Edelweiss" was written for the musical: it is neither an Austrian folk song nor the Austrian national anthem (as President Reagan believed).

** A case of AdaptationalVillainy, as the original musical version has Rolf helping them to escape.

* ValuesDissonance: "Sixteen Going On Seventeen" is ''full'' of this now that feminism is such a thing. Considering that the song is sung by the rat bastard who sells the family out to the Nazis in the movie, and Liesel acts almost as aggressive towards Rolfe as the men in the song would towards her, the reprise -- in which Maria blissfully sings about the "adventure" of finding a man to "belong to" through marriage -- seems especially hard to defend.

Several years before being cast in ''Film/TheSoundOfMusic'', Julie Andrews appeared on a Carol Burnett Creator/CarolBurnett special where they performed in a parody of the Broadway show.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.
