A woman leaves an Austrian convent to become a governess to the children of a Naval officer widower.
Maria's wedding train was 14 feet long.
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.
After the Von Trapp family have been stopped by the Nazis after pushing the car out of the gates of the house, and then allowed by Herr Zeller to take part in the music festival, when Maria and the Captain go to the front of the car, he gives her a "cross-fingers" sign. This is the sign for luck in many English-speaking countries (and maybe others too), but in German-speaking countries it is "Daumen drücken" ("press thumbs") for luck, not crossed fingers. If Christopher Plummer really had been Austrian, he would have pressed his thumb down on a vertical clenched fist.
