  • Overview
  • Details
  • Cast
In Rodgers and Hammerstein's greatest collaboration, a feisty postulant named Maria (Julie Andrews) is sent to care for the unruly, motherless Von Trapp children. She soon tames them -- and finds herself falling for their stern father (Christopher Plummer). Oscar-winning director Robert Wise used stunning Austrian locations to transform the popular stage musical into a cinema classic in which the hills truly seemed to come alive.

Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this classic film is rich in character, music, and story, as well as filled with positive messages. In the final 10 minutes there are a number of suspenseful scenes that may be frightening for some children, including the main character being held at gunpoint. Kids might be curious to learn more about Nazis and World War II after watching this movie. There's some moderate alcohol consumption and one character smokes. The romantic scenes are limited to gentle embraces and brief chaste kisses.

Sexual Content

A teen couple embraces and dances together. There's a tender romantic scene as Maria and Captain Von Trapp kiss gently and reveal their love for one another.

Violence

Soldiers confront the Von Trapp family as they prepare to leave Austria for the safety of Switzerland. After the family makes a daring escape, there are tense moments as the soldiers, with shadowy flashlights in the darkness, search the local abbey where the family is hiding. One young Nazi sympathizer holds Captain Von Trapp at gunpoint.

Language

"Heil Hitler" in several scenes.

Social Behavior

Find your place in life and live it to the fullest. Gentleness and warmth, in combination with some discipline, bring out the best in people, particularly children. Courage and sometimes difficult choices, even leaving your home and friends behind, are necessary to fight against an oppressive government. It's essential to find that courage and stand up for your beliefs.

Consumerism

Not applicable

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Wine and champagne are served with restraint in a few social situations. The baroness smokes.
