    Inspired Rodgers and Hammerstein's musical 'The Sound of Music'
    Maria von Trapp was an atheist who found God. She was actually strict and humorless, and the children did not want her to marry their father.
    Captain von Trapp fought in the German navy in World War I.
    His nephew described him as 'the most boring man who ever lived.'
    The family snuck out of Austria not on foot, but on a train.
    When her children left the group because she was so demanding, Maria hired phony ones to take their places.
    The family eventually gave up music to become missionaries in New Guinea.
    They defied the Nazis with little regard for their own safety.
    Captain von Trapp said he'd rather hang a Persian carpet than a swastika flag.
    He actually was warm and friendly, and it was he who taught the children to sing.
    Maria suffered from severe headaches.
    After escaping Austria, they lived as poor refugees in Italy.
    The original purchasers of their story screwed them out of the profits.
    Many details of the story, including the children's names, were changed for the musical.
    Fans of 'The Sound of Music' have harassed surviving family members for nearly 40 years.
