Description

When Disney released Mary Poppins in 1964, it was a smash hit. The musical film, starring Julie Andrews and Dick Van Dyke, went on to win 5 Academy Awards, including Best Actress for Andrews, but Walt Disney didn’t have an easy time getting the film to the screen. As is well-dramatized in Saving Mr. Banks, original Mary Poppins creator, P.L. Travers, was fiercely protective of the magical nanny of her creation, and for a long time withheld the rights to any of her Mary Poppins books from Disney.
