In Broadway musical The Sound Of Music, based upon the true story of Maria von Trapp, first shown in a German movie. Became one of the longest running musicals of all times. It was Oscar Hammerstein's last on a total of 35. Mary Martin acted Maria Rainer's part, a nun taking care of the seven children von Trapp. Patricia Neway was the mother superior of the Nonnberg abbey.

Alice Cooper [theme and part of the melody somewhere in Halo Of Flies]

Coltrane also cut Chim Chim Cheree from film Mary Poppins (again with Julie Andrews). But he started doing My Favorite Things years before the film version of The Sound Of Music and he kept on doing and reshaping it as long as he lived.
