Overview
This Brief History tells the real story of the Von Trapps, the family that inspired "The Sound of Music," and how they escaped from the Third Reich. It will look at the stage show, the differences that were incorporated into the fictionalization of the tale, and how that story was brought to the big screen. It will also look at the numerous other versions of the Von Trapps' story that have been made--including two West German movies from the 1950s and an extensive forty-part Japanese anime series from the 1990s--to explain why the story of the Von Trapp family has remained so popular for a half-century.
