Magical English nanny arrives one day on the East Wind and takes over the household of a very proper London banker. She introduces her two charges to her friends and family, including Bert, the chimney sweep (Van Dyke), and eccentric Uncle Albert (Wynn). She also changes the lives of everyone in the family. From her they learn that life can always be happy and joyous if you take the proper perspective. Film debut of Andrews. Based on the books by P.L. Travers. A Disney classic that hasn't lost any of its magic. Look for the wonderful sequence where Van Dyke dances with animated penguins.

Mary Poppins
Star_onStar_onStar_onStar_on 4.0 4.0

George Banks is a stuffy banker who runs the bank with precision and thinks his home should be run the same way. The only problem is that there is no laughter in their house. But all that changes when he hires a nanny named Mary Poppins (Julie Andrews). She is not your typical nanny, she is magical. Her favorite saying is "in every job that must be done, there is an element of fun". The Banks family loves her and yours will too. This 1964 movie became a classic and is great for everyone to watch.
