Mary Poppins 50th Anniversary
Mary Poppins 50th Anniversary disc comes on out on Blu-Ray on December 10, 2013! And this movie is just as good as I remember it, maybe even better. Now that Saving Mr. Banks is coming to theaters the story of Mary Poppins will come to life once more for many more generations for years to come. It has been released from the Disney vaults (Yes, They EXIST!!) to celebrate their 50th year anniversary.
“In every job that must be done, there is an element of fun. You find the fun, and – SNAP – the job’s a game!!” – Julie Andrews as ‘Mary Poppins’ in Mary Poppins
Julie Andrews will always be remembered for her role as Mary Poppins, and Dick Van Dyke absolutely shines as Bert the Chimney Sweep. Van Dyke also plays the senior officer of the bank – and has his very best scene where he realizes that the punchline – “A wooden leg named Smith” – is funny. Andrews won an Academy Award for Mary Poppins, and the movie also won Best Visual Effects, and Best Music Score, as well as Best Song (“Chim Chim Cher-ee”).
This is the far better, two-disc, 40th anniversary edition that not only restores everything to digital quality, but adds a second disc of deleted scenes (and a song!), commentary, and many other cool new features. Look for the new 40th anniversary DVD edition – it’s worth waiting for!
It’s just supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!
