A magic nanny comes to work for a cold banker’s unhappy family.
Julie Andrews and Dick Van Dyke star in this musical Disney classic! 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 extraordinary magical powers before flying off again. Winner of 5 Academy Awards, including Best Actress for Julie Andrews!
