A high school choir is fading in popularity, as it continues to lose most of its' members one by one. A wannabe rock singer is convinced to join the choir, in hopes of winning the upcoming competition and cash prize.
The city of Salzburg (the setting of the play and the hometown of the von Trapps) is never once mentioned. See more »
Members of the Kriegsmarine(Navy of Nazi Germany) did not wear Swastika armbands. Only members of the Nazi party and Hitler Youth wore armbands.

As far as I know this is a live television adaptation of the original stage musical and NOT the film version. I know a lot would not agree with how the show was made but who's to blame? The magnificent voices of the cast brings back memories on how the Von Trapp family became a sensation. Carrie may not have had the best of acting abilities but when she starts to sing the chemistry that defines her as Maria starts to appear. I don't think it would be fair to compare her with Julie Andrews but I do believe that she did better than any other Broadway actresses who played Maria on-stage.
I can only say to myself that they did cast the right people for a television show. To play on-stage would be a different thing.
Kudos to Carrie Underwood.
