Mary Poppins

Lists: Fantasy, Musicals, 50 Years Ago - 1964

Brief Synopsis: "The movie combines a diverting story, songs, color and sequences of live action blended with the movements of animated figures. Mary Poppins is a kind of Super-nanny who flies in with her umbrella in response to the request of the Banks children and proceeds to put things right with the aid of her rather extraordinary magical powers before flying off again."
