When the role of nanny for the Banks family becomes available, Mary Poppins comes for applying for it, blowing all of her contestants away thank you to her magic umbrella. Mary Poppins’ bottomless bag is one of the things that the Banks’ kids enjoy most, along with the fact that she can clean up a room’s mess by clicking her fingers. The kids beg her to teach them how to do that, and in order to do so, Mary Poppins takes them on a journey to the park with Bert, a friend of her. But magical things soon start to happen, and they will find themselves in a magical world where they will meet a good bunch of locals.
American musical, produced by Walt Disney in 1964, is based on the first volume of children’s books of the same name, written by Australian author P.L Travers.
„Mary Poppins“ set a record unmatched by any movie produced by the American company Disney Studios. Robert Stevenson’s film brings to the fore British actress Julie Andrews, awarded with the Oscar for best actress in a musical / comedy, the role of the magical nanny. A nanny demanding, but very loving Mary Poppins „landing“ in the sky with an umbrella to take care of children Banks family, and sing a song about a nonsensical word – „supercalifragilisticexpialidocious“.
