Violence & Gore


  • There is one 1 use of the word p*ssy and thats the only profanity in the film.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • The Baroness smokes cigarettes in a couple scenes. Then again, America rated this G back in 1970.
  • There is a formal party where the guests are drinking champagne and other alcoholic beverages.
  • During a song, the oldest daughter (16) asks the Captain if she can taste champagne. He refuses.
  • It's insinuated that some pink lemonade the adults are drinking has alcohol in it, commenting "...its not too sweet . It's not too sour. It's just too pink"

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • The Nazi flag is displayed prominently in two scenes, and Nazi soldiers are seen marching. The family gets chased by the Nazi soldiers near the end. No one gets hurt or killed. This could definitely be intense for younger children.
  • The thunderstorm during the "My Favorite Things" scene might frighten some very young children, just as it does with the children in the movie.


The Parents Guide items below may give away important plot points.

Violence & Gore

  • A character is threatened at gunpoint in the climax. That's about it, but it is more suspenseful than violent, which the film has no actual violence.
