Goofs

  • The map of the world shows a separate Norway. It was not until 1905 that Norway separated from Sweden and became an independent kingdom. Nonetheless a distinct country called Norway did exist, even if it wasn't independent, and it is highlighted in a different color on the map because it leads Anna to teach the children about Norway.

Poor songs (Hello Young Lovers, Getting to Know You), fair choreography, poor script, nice photography.
