"Walt Disney’s Mary Poppins is the kind of film that creates not fans but evangelists." — Hollywood Reporter
Winner of five Oscars, including Best Actress for Julie Andrews, and nominated for seven more, Mary Poppins tells the story of a magical nanny hired by workaholic parents to oversee their bored and recalcitrant children. Mary (Julie Andrews) and her Cockney performer-friend Bert (Dick Van Dyke) embark on a series of adventures that enchant the children and ultimately the adults, as well. The film holds an amazing 100% Fresh Rating on Rotten Tomatoes, calling it: “A lavish modern fairy tale celebrated for its amazing special effects, catchy songs, and Julie Andrews's legendary performance in the title role.” The story of how author P.L. Travers and Walt Disney collaborated to bring Mary Poppins to the big screen became the subject of the 2013 film Saving Mr. Banks. The 1964 musical received universal acclaim by film critics at the time. Walt Disney’s brilliant combination of live-action and animation remains a timeless classic to this very day.
