MARY POPPINS (1964) - George Banks (David Tomlinson) and Winifred Banks (Glynis Johns) need a new nanny after their "difficult" children drive off their last one (Elsa Lanchester). Their classified ad makes its way to Mary Poppins (Julie Andrews) who turns out to be exactly what the Banks family needs - if not expects.
The new nanny takes the two Banks children, Jane (Karen Dotrice) and Michael (Matthew Garber), on a series of magical adventures to the tune of some of the most
memorable song and dance numbers in film history.
Pamela Lyndon Travers, the author of the original Mary Poppins stories upon which this film is based, reportedly gave Walt Disney a hard time as he attempted to buy
the book rights from her - he spent over twenty years courting her. The result - directed by Disney's longest-serving director, Robert Stevenson - was Disney's
greatest live-action film ever. It was also the longest Disney film ever. Featuring the Oscar-winning screen debut of Julie Andrews in the title role and Dick van Dyke's
star turn as Bert the chimney sweeper, Mary Poppins uses every minute of its 2-hours-and-20-minutes length to wondrous advantage and garnered Disney eight
Academy Award nominations and five Oscars. Besides the Julie Andrews win for Best Actress, the film won Best Effects, Best Original Song, Best Original Score,
and Best Film Editing.
