Foxxinnia: Whoa whoa whoa back up. The Sound of Music was based on a true story?


With quite a few liberties such as their escape.The movie shows them hiking over mountains when in reality they boarded a train at a station next to their estate which took them to Italy from where they went to London and then the US. But having Julie Andrews singing about the food in the dining car might have been a bit anti-climatic.

For those confused about Captain VonTrapp being in the Austrian navy, it was actually the Austro-Hungarian navy which did have sea access (out of Pola, which really hasn't changed much) up until they lost WWI. VonTrapp was actually a Hell of a u-boat captain, which is why they wanted him back.

Rixel: For some reason I thought that Alan Alda or Mike Farrell had died when I clicked that link.


I was thinking Christopher Plummer.

Degenz: What? Wikipedia says Maria von Trapp died of heart failure on March 27, 1987. Is there another one?


This is the Baron's daughter, Maria, who passed away. She just happened to have the same first name as his second wife, Maria.

That's her stepmother.  Maria was the second eldest daughter and was named Louisa in the movie.

eldie: A sad thing I learned that the youngest Von Trapp child, Gretl in the movie (who had the sore finger) died at age 30 in 1951 from complications of delivering her first (still born) baby. She is buried holding her stillborn baby, next to her father, the Baron.


Oh, good lord.  The poor woman...

Sound of Music was always one of my favorite movies.  Just wasted some time and did some reading on the Von Trapp family.  Some things I learned that I didn't know.  Maria (the deceased's step-mother, Julie Andrews in the movie) and the Baron were actually married in 1927 and their escape from the Nazis happened 10 years after.  Thus the children at the end of the movie should have appeared 10 years older.  But they wouldn't have been as cute I guess so liberties were taken with the story as usual.  Also, Baron and Maria had 3 children of their own who are all alive.  A sad thing I learned that the youngest Von Trapp child, Gretl in the movie (who had the sore finger) died at age 30 in 1951 from complications of delivering her first (still born) baby.  She is buried holding her stillborn baby, next to her father, the Baron.

zimbomba63: Kids loved that movie, I hated it.  Only movie where I rooted for the Nazis to win.  There was that one scene where they're trying to escape and the young Nazi wanna-be has them at gun point, I'd start shouting, "Shoot them, you fool, before they sing again!"  The wife was not pleased.


I felt the same way about Glee.

a particular individual: Nowhere does the article say how old she was. That there is some fine reportin'.


She was the last surviving member of the musical family of seven brothers and sisters and passed away in her sleep at home in Vermont at the age of 99 on Tuesday, PEOPLE confirms.
