In Edwardian London, the mischievous Banks children meet their match in new nanny Mary Poppins, who descended from the sky and has both a song and a saying for every occasion. Lovingly adapted from the books of P. L. Travers and peppered with the Sherman Brothers’ song-and-dance numbers, Mary Poppins is a live-action treat whose seamless combination of animation sequences have helped make it a perennial favourite.
