A woman leaves an Austrian convent to become a governess to the children of a Naval officer widower.
The costume that Duane Chase (Kurt) wears at the party is called a Tracht, an authentic Austrian costume. The jacket he wears is called a Loden.
The hills are alive with the sound of music / With songs they have sung for a thousand years. / The hills fill my heart with the sound of music. / My heart wants to sing every song it hears.
When Maria and the children come back from their day of play and are singing inside, they decide who is next to sing; Captain Von Trapp. When Maria hands the Captain her guitar, it has no strings on it. While he is playing and singing, the strings will appear then disappear.
The 20th Century Fox logo is played in complete silence.
Most television airings also delete part of sequence in which the von Trapps hide in the abbey cemetery, specifically, where Gretl asks Maria if they should sing at that moment. In addition, the scene in which the Captain and the Baroness call off their engagement omits all of the dialog leading up to the Captain saying it's no use.
