The Sound of Music

Other mistake: At the end of the Do-Re-Mi number, as Maria and the children are going up the stairs at the end of the song, Kurt still has his mouth open, even though the song has finished.

Other mistake: When Maria and the children are having a picnic on the hilltop, Gretl and Leisl appear to be playing go fish. If you look carefully, Gretl takes three turns in a row.

Revealing mistake: When the kids step out of the water and walk towards the house, the floor is already soaking wet from previous takes.

Trivia: The front and back of the von Trapp house are actually two different houses. Also, the gazebo (which belongs to the house used for the back shots) is across a river from the house. You can take the Sound of Music tour in Salzburg.
