It’s been years since I’ve watched Mary Poppins but it’s about time I did so again. With the release of Mary Poppins 50th Anniversary Edition Blu-ray / DVD, as well as the upcoming Saving Mr. Banks (the film which follows Walt Disney’s efforts to procure the rights to make the movie from author P.L. Travers), there’s no time better than the present!
Re-Experiencing Mary Poppins
Together with my husband and daughter, we got to see the wonderfully-restored classic. Aside from some green screen work that looked a bit worn, the rest of the video footage looked fantastic and extremely clear. For a live action film from 1964, that’s really saying a lot! The songs are as charming as ever and that accent by Dick van Dyke is just awesome
