Good to know:

-The real life Maria and the von Trapps family have been shown differently in the movie. For instance the Baron wasn’t cold hearted at all.

-The movie shows several locations that are different from the ones they pretend to show.

-Maria and Julie Andrews met in real life after the success of the movie.

-The locals in Salzburg aren’t amused by the film and many haven’t even seen it because they think it spoils the sanctity of their town.
