“There’s the whole world at your feet.”
Mary Poppins (1964)
Mary Poppins is a film released in 1964. Julie Andrews plays the character of Mary Poppins, a beautiful nanny that transforms misbehaving kids into well-behaving kids with the use of fun and a little bit of magic.
This movie is one of the most whimsical films that Disney has done (in my opinion). It contrasts dreary England with the imaginative magic of a whole new world. That contrast makes the whimsy that Mary Poppins brings forth to the children and the audience for that matter, all the more sensational.
Adding to the whimsy is a typically cheery soundtrack. The soundtrack includes Sister Suffragette, The Life I Lead, The Perfect Nanny, A Spoonful of Sugar, A Jolly Holiday, Chim Chim Cheree, supercalifragilisticexpialidocious, Stay Awake, I love to Laugh, Tuppence a Bag, Fidelity Fiduciary Bank, Step in Time, A Man has Dreams, Over the Waves, and Let’s go Fly a Kite. These are all amazing songs sung throughout the film to highlight emotionally charged scenes. The highlighted song for this article from the gorgeous 1964 film is, of course, supercalifragilisticexpialidocious. Check the highlighted covers below!
