Zanuck hired Ernest Lehman to write the screenplay for the film adaptation of the stage musical. Not especially impressed, he decided to use the stage musical and Maria's memoir for most of his source material. After seeing the show, Wyler said he hated it, but after two weeks of Lehman's persuasion, Wyler reluctantly agreed to direct and produce the film.
Zanuck told him to tell Wyler to make the other film, and that they would move ahead on schedule with another director, ending Wyler's participation. Meanwhile, Wise, whose film The Sand Pebbles had been postponed, read Lehman's first draft, was impressed by what he read, and agreed to direct the film. Wise shared Lehman's vision of the film being centered on the music, and the changes he made were consistent with the writer's approach—mainly reducing the amount of sweetness and sentimentality found in the stage musical.
Plummer especially helped transform a character lacking substance into a stronger, more forceful complex Christopher Plummer with a wry sense of humor and a darker edge. Lehman's first and only choice for Maria was Julie Andrews. A few minutes into the film, Wise told Lehman, "Let's go sign this girl before somebody else sees this film and grabs her! Wise flew to London to meet with Plummer and explained his concept of the film; the actor accepted after being assured that he could work with Lehman to improve the character;  Plummer later described himself as having become quite arrogant at the time, "spoiled by too many great theater roles".
Wise also spent considerable time and effort on casting the secondary characters. Charmian Carrhowever, was a model who worked part-time in a doctor's office and had no ambition to pursue a career as an actress. Wise later recalled, "She was so pretty and had such poise and charm that we liked her immediately. Rehearsals for the singing and dance sequences began on February 10, Carr contended that all of the children who are in the film sing on the track, but four other children were added to most of the songs to give them a fuller sound, they did not replace them as singers.
Principal photography began on March 26,at 20th Century Fox studios in Los Angeles, where scenes from Maria's bedroom and the abbey cloister and graveyard were filmed. They relented after he threatened instead to include Mamma Mia - Various - Studio 33 - The 31st Story newsreel footage of crowds cheering Hitler during a visit to the town.
The cast and crew flew back to Los Angeles and resumed filming at Fox studios on Irwin Kostal - Th 6 for all remaining scenes, including those in the villa dining room, ballroom, terrace, living room, and gazebo. The album reached the number one position on the Billboard that year in the United States. The album has been reissued several times, including anniversary editions with additional tracks in,and Robert Wise hired Mike Kaplan to direct the publicity campaign for the film.
Scheuer of the Los Angeles Times described the film as "three hours of visual and vocal brilliance",  and Variety called it "a warmly-pulsating, captivating drama set to the most imaginative use of the lilting R-H tunes, magnificently mounted and with a brilliant cast". A few months after its United States release, The Sound of Music opened in theaters overseas—the first American movie to be completely dubbed in a foreign language, both dialogue and music.
The film was a popular success in every country it opened, except the two countries where the story originated, Austria and Germany. Robert Wise and the studio intervened, the original film was restored, and the branch manager was fired.
The Sound of Music is one of the most commercially successful films of all time. It was not a universal success, however, with the film only enjoying modest success in France and it was a flop in Germany. It also Christopher Plummer performed poorly in Italy, but a re-release after the Oscars brought better results. The thirty minutes edited out of the original film included portions of the "Morning Hymn and Alleluia" sung by the nuns, part of the dialogue between Mother Abbess and Maria in the abbey, part of Liesl and Rolfe's dialogue preceding "Sixteen Going on Seventeen", Liesl's verse of "Edelweiss" sung with the Captain, the Captain and Baroness waltzing at the party, and minor dialogue cuts within existing scenes.

The Sound of Music film, like the stage musical, presents a history of the von Trapp family that is not completely accurate. The film was influenced by other musicals of its era, such as Mary Poppinsthe Rodgers and Christopher Plummer television production of Cinderellaand the stage production of Lerner and Loewe 's Camelot coincidentally all starring Julie Andrews. Screenwriter Ernest Lehman was inspired by the opening of West Side Story and saw the musical as "a fairy tale that's almost real".
As Maria walks down the aisle to be married, the pageantry is explicitly both Guinevere and Cinderella. In keeping with this tone the filmmakers used artistic license to convey the essence and meaning of their story.
Georg Ludwig von Trapp was indeed an anti-Nazi opposed to Irwin Kostal - Th Anschlussand lived Christopher Plummer his family in a villa in a district of Salzburg called Aigen.
Their lifestyle depicted in the film, however, greatly exaggerated their standard of living. The house was also not their ancestral home, as depicted I Have Confidence - Rodgers And Hammerstein* / Julie Andrews the film. The family had previously lived in homes in Zell Am See and Klosterneuburg after being forced to abandon their actual ancestral home in Pola following World War I.
Georg moved the family to the Salzburg villa shortly after the death of his first wife in Austrian nobility, moreover, was legally abolished in and the nobiliary particle von was proscribed after World War I, so he was legally "Georg Trapp". Both the title and the prepositional nobiliary particle vonhowever, continued to be widely used unofficially as a matter of courtesy. Georg was offered a position in the Kriegsmarinebut this occurred before the Anschluss. He was heavily recruited by the Nazis because he had extensive experience with submarines, and Germany was looking to expand its fleet of U-boats.
With his family in desperate financial straits, and having no other marketable skills other than his training as a naval officer, he seriously considered the offer before deciding he could not serve a Nazi regime. Rather than threaten arrest, the Nazis actually continued to woo him.
In reality, third child Maria von Trapp called "Louisa" in the film described her father as a doting parent who made handmade gifts for the children in his woodshop and who would Månadens Mörke Messias - Vanek - Djupare Än Underjorden (File, Album) lead family musicales on his violin.
