Mary Poppins (1964)

Oh my word! I love Bert (Dick Van Dyke) in this film! I don’t remember the first time I saw this film, but I loved Dick Van Dyke. I love the entire film, but my favorite scene in the film is ~ Bert and the chimney sweeps are dancing on the roof tops!!! Love it! Rick likes the penguins. Well! Who doesn’t? If there was a classic film loved by so many, this is it!
I think we all know the story. Mr. Banks is a little uptight ~ to say the least. 🙂 The nanny has resigned and a new nanny (Julie Andrews) is on the doorstep after the other applicants blow away in the wind. 🙂 Who is this mysterious new nanny??? Well, Michael (Matthew Garber) and Jane (Karen Dotrice) are pleasantly surprised when the new nanny is so much more than they expected. She’s magical, mysterious and so much fun!!! The children along with Mary Poppins and Bert have fun, whimsical and magical adventures together. Jane and Michael share their enthusiasm with their stuffy father. And all does work out in the end. 🙂
This film is “supercalifragilisticexpialidocious.”
Do you remember how old you were the first time you saw Mary Poppins?
