Maria is a free-spirited young Austrian woman studying to become a nun in Salzburg. Her love of music and the mountains, her youthful enthusiasm and imagination, and her lack of discipline cause some concern among the nuns.

Since Mary Poppins (1964) hadn't yet been released, when Julie Andrews sang "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious" to the children in the cast, they thought she'd made up the song just for them.

In "I Have Confidence", Maria trips while running through the courtyard to the Von Trapp house. This was an accident; however, director Robert Wise liked it so much that he kept it in the movie. He felt it added to the nervousness of the song and of the character.

Charmian Carr who played Liesl and was 21 at the time, share a mutual attraction with 35 year old Christopher Plummer, who played her father.

Christopher Plummer has been known to refer to the movie as "The Sound of Mucus" or "S&M", owing to his intense dislike of working on the film. He likened working with Julie Andrews to "being hit over the head with a big Valentine's Day card, every day." Nontheless, he and Andrews have remained close friends ever since.

This film received five Academy Awards, including Best Picture and Best Director.

This film received two Golden Globe Awards, for Best Motion Picture and Best Actress

This film won the Directors Guild of America Award for Outstanding Directorial Achievement, and the Writers Guild of America Award for Best Written American Musical.
