MARY POPPINS (Theatrical Release USA 1964)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.4|5.0 Starsìììì

Mary Poppins has an unmatched whimsicalness rarely seen in musicals. The innocence and tremendous vocal talent of Julie Andrews coupled with the fluidness of Dick Van Dyke’s dancing make for an unparalleled entertainment experience. This film easily earns its permanent place in the home video library.
