So viewers are aware, this is not a remake of the movie. This is a television production of the Broadway show. This was old-fashioned TV. In the s, much television was broadcast live, and performances of musicals were frequent. This was essentially a televised stage performance, with simple sets and no special effects. The company performed the Broadway version of "The Sound of Music," with one exception: the song "An Ordinary Couple" from the original production was removed and replaced with "Something Good," which was written for the film version. Viewers unfamiliar with the stage version might not recognize two other songs from the Broadway show not included in the film but included in this production , "No Way to Stop It" and "How Can Love Survive.

The nearly three-hour-long movie was nominated for 10 Academy Awards and won five, including those for best picture and best director. The Sound of Music , which takes place during the late s, opens on a sweeping view of the Austrian Alps and a young woman, Maria played by Julie Andrews , singing. When she hears church bells, she hurries back to the abbey, where she is a postulant, but she arrives too late for the church service. She tries to explain herself to the Mother Abbess Peggy Wood , who tells her that she is to take up a position as governess to the seven children of the widowed former naval officer Captain Georg von Trapp Christopher Plummer. When she arrives to take up her post, she learns that the captain requires military discipline from his children ranging in age from 5 to 16 and expects the same from Maria. The following day the captain leaves on a trip to Vienna. Upon learning that he will return with Baroness Elsa Schraeder Eleanor Parker , whom he intends to marry, Maria determines to teach the children a song with which to greet the baroness. The captain and baroness return with their friend Max Detweiler Richard Haydn , catching Maria and the children in a rowboat on the lake behind the house, which they overturn when they see the captain. The captain, displeased, fires Maria, but, when he hears the children singing for the baroness, he changes his mind.
