Mary Poppins

1964| U| 134 mins| / /

 

Director: Robert Stevenson
Starring: Julie Andrews, Dick Van Dyke

Pioneering for its time, Disney’s ‘animation within a film’ adaptation of the P L Travers’ story is one of the warmest and most endearing films ever made. Julie Andrews is on fine form in the lead role (for which she won a Best Actress Oscar) and is perfectly paired with Dick Van Dyke as loveable chimney sweep Burt. Poppins and her crew take you on a magical ride through chalk pictures and the roof tops of London and treat audiences to song and dance classics such as Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious, A Spoon Full of Sugar and Chim Chim Cher-ee . In total Mary Poppins clocked up five Academy Awards including Best Song and Best Visual Effects and is well established as a family favourite across the world.
