The Banks children just can’t get along with the nannies hired by their overbearing banker father. Then the wind picks up in the east, someone knocks at the door, and all of their lives are changed forever. Fifty years ago, audiences eagerly swallowed the spoonful of sugar that is Mary Poppins, and the film became one of the most beloved movie musicals of all-time. Julie Andrews delivers a star-making title performance, alongside Dick Van Dyke as the lovable jack-of-all-trades, Bert. Courtesy of Walt Disney Pictures.
