More Strong Evidence of the Power of Story

Recently I came on these videos.

Note that the movie the Sound of Music came out in 1965. it is the most popular musical of all time. It is beloved of people all over the world, 

How can such a story resonate with those of such different cultures and backgrounds?

The small town where it was filmed gets 300 thousand visitors a year from various countries. What does that say and imply?

The movie had been a popular stage play before Julie Andrews took the role. And there was a German movie too. Those were based on a book. 

This link is a documentary that explores the facts and fiction.

It is not just a strange cult classic. Note how wild the audience went at this reunion by Op
Here on a related note see how the fiction about the Lone Ranger was super popular on radio and TV. Notice that there were hundreds of other shows that did not endure as long. So what that one? Then consider the facts that this history expert brings to our attention.  
So as a storyteller and media person what can you learn from these?
