Donehueproposed the story as a stage musical for Mary Martin. Arranger and conductor Irwin Kostal prerecorded the songs with a large orchestra and singers on a stage prior to the start of filming, and later adapted instrumental underscore passages based on the songs.
Choreographers Marc Breaux and Dee Dee Woodwho had worked with Andrews on Mary Poppinsworked out all new choreography sequences that incorporated many of the Salzburg locations and settings.
The Sound of Music was filmed from March 26 through September 1,with external scenes shot on location in Salzburg, Austria, and the surrounding region, and interior scenes filmed at the 20th Century Fox studios in California. 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.
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 figure with a wry sense of humor and a darker edge.
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".
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.
The Making of America's Favorite Movie, Julia Antopol Hirsch says that Kostal used seven children and five adults to record the children's voices; the only scene where the child-actors actually sing is when they sing "The Sound of Music" on their own after Maria leaves.
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.
They relented after he threatened instead to include actual 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 July 6 for all remaining scenes, including those in the villa dining room, ballroom, terrace, living room, and gazebo.
This has always been a major element in the theatre, and it's my conviction that anyone who can't, on occasion, be sentimental about children, home or nature is sadly maladjusted. 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".
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.
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 initially performed poorly in Italy, but a re-release after the Oscars brought better results. 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 the Anschlussand lived with 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 in 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 von, however, continued to be widely used unofficially as a matter of courtesy.
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 often lead family musicales on his violin.The Insider tells the true story of a man who decided to tell the world what the seven major tobacco companies knew (and concealed) about the dangers of their product.
