Spot Maria

In the background of "I have confidence" under the arcs a woman walks through - this is the real, original Maria Von Trapp they gave her a cameo as an extra at the line, "I must stop these doubts, all these worries/If I don't, I just know I'll turn back. She is with her daughter Rosmarie, and Werner's daughter Barbara.

Where is Maria NEW
by: Peter Blight

Robert Wise came to Australia years ago (mid-1990s I think) and was interviewed on stage about his entire career (interspersed with film clips) at the Westgarth Cinema in Melbourne by Paul Harris, a well-respected movie commentator. I took the opportunity, when the audience was invited to, to ask the great man a question, one of the biggest thrills of my life. I preceded it by announcing to the assembled hundreds that The Sound Of Music was my favourite movie of all time (to applause, I'm happy to say - this in itself was akin to a catharsis or religious experience), and then asked if it was true, as had been discussed on The Julie Andrews Hour that the real Maria von Trapp appears somewhere in the film. I theorised that she played the "bowing" lady in the Festival scene near the end. He answered no, that was an actress, and that to placate Maria when she made one of her many unannounced visits to the filming location he put her in a shot during "I Have Confidence". He admitted though that he "was too far back" and that she really could not be seen. I don't believe, from the way he answered my question, that this was in any way intentional.
