Product Description

Amazon.ca

There is only one word that comes close to accurately describing the enchanting Mary Poppins, and that term was coined by the movie itself: supercalifragilisticexpialidocious! Even at 2 hours and 20 minutes, Disney's pioneering mixture of live action and animation (based on the books by P.L. Travers) still holds kids spellbound. Julie Andrews won an Oscar as the world's most magically idealized nanny ("practically perfect in every way," and complete with lighter-than-air umbrella), and Dick Van Dyke is her clownishly charming beau, Bert the chimney sweep. The songs are also terrific, ranging from bright and cheery ("A Spoonful of Sugar") to dark and cheery (the Oscar-winning "Chim Chim Cher-ee") to touchingly melancholy ("Feed the Birds"). Many consider Mary Poppins to be the crowning achievement of Walt Disney's career--and it was the only one of his features to be nominated for a best picture Academy Award until Beauty and the Beast in 1991. --Jim Emerson

Special Features

• The movie received 13 Academy Award(R) nominations and won 5 Oscars(R) for Best Actress, Best Song, Best Music Score, Best Film Editing, and Best Special Visual Effects. It also received a special scientific award for the creation and application of Color Traveling Matte Composite Cinematography, which helped make the combination of live action and animated actors in the film possible.
• The special effects work on the film was the most challenging the studio had known. Everything from the two-strip sodium process and piano wire to bungee cords were used to create the magic sequences.
• The film began its fabulous box office run at a lavish premiere at Grauman's Chinese Theater on August 27, 1964, becoming Disney's most successful feature at that time.
• At the film's premiere, Pamela Travers, author of the "Mary Poppins" stories, approached Disney and commented, "Miss Andrews is satisfactory as Mary Poppins, but Mr. Van Dyke is all wrong, and I don't really like mixing the little cartoon figures with the live actors. When do we start cutting it?" Disney didn't change a thing.
• Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious, meaning fantastic or excellent, is not the longest word in the English language. The 45-letter pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanokonios, a special form of silicosis caused by ultra-microscopic particles of siliceous volcanic dust, is.
• "The Simpsons" spoofed the movie with an episode featuring a housekeeper named Sherry Bobbins. Unfortunately, she wasn't as successful as Mary Poppins in reforming the family -- or getting away at the end!

5.0 out of 5 stars Mary Poppins; practically perfect in every way Sept. 9 2006
Format:DVD
This is one of those films that has stood the test of time and is still entertaining now as it was 40 years ago. Everyone knows the tale of the magical nanny that blows in on the east wind and into the lives of the Banks family of 17 Cherry Tree Lane. Jane and Michael Banks have had a succession of strict nannies as well as a very strict father and a mother who is always out with her fellow suffragettes. Mary Poppins brings magic and fun into the children's lives, something that has been sorely lacking prior to her arrival.

Julie Andrews stars as the nanny and Dick Van Dyke as the lovable cockney Bert, (just forgive his dreadful accent) who always seems to be around at the right time for an adventure. The children find themselves having outings such as jumping into a chalk picture into a cartoon world, having a tea-party on a ceiling and dancing across the rooftops of London. Stuffed to the gills with songs such as 'Spoonful of Sugar', 'Chim Chim Cheree', 'Feed the Birds' and 'Jolly Holiday', this will have you tapping your foot throughout.

This 40th anniversary edition is on 2 discs and features lots of extras such as a documentary, commentary, footage of the premieres etc. The quality of print is very high, the colours have never looked so vibrant and the picture is razor sharp. Wonderful stuff.

By Dr. Joseph Lee #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
VIDEO:

Mary Poppins pops onto blu ray with MPEG-4 AVC 1080p 1.66:1 encode. The digital restoration by Disney is simply fantastic. Grain levels are intact and filmic. Colour reproduction is bright, bold, and accurate - especially the fanciful cartoon sequences. Contrast is dynamic and blacks are inky. Image resolution and details are excellent. Human faces and other clothing textures are impressive. You'll see individual hair follicles, wrinkles, and even makeup effects on the Senior Mr. Dawes. (4.5/5)

AUDIO:

Mary Poppins dances and sings its way onto blu ray with a robust English 7.1 DTS-HD MA sound mix. Dialogue is crystal clear and neatly prioritized at all times; effects are crisp and mischievous; and Richard and Robert Sherman's unforgettable songs have quite simply never sounded better, fuller or more engaging. Dynamic range is just average. There are even a few wonderful moments, like exploding fireworks during Step in Time, where all nine channels spring to life with active, almost-aggressive panning, and my two subwoofers thundered. (4.5/5)

TRIVIA:

In 1965, out of 13 nominations, Mary Poppins won 5 Oscars: Best Actress (Julie Andrews), Best Film Editing, Best Special Visual Effects, Best Original Song (Chim Chim Cher-ee), and Best Original Score (Richard and Robert Sherman). It was nominated for Best Picture, Best Director, Best Screenplay, Best Colour Cinematography, Best Set Direction – Colour, Best Costume, Best Sound and Best Music Score.

Mary Poppins has an estimated budget of $6 million, but grossed $102 million, which is phenomenal by today’s standards.

FINAL THOUGHTS:

Mary Poppins is a top tier catalog title we've been long waiting to see on blu ray.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Nannie for the children. Aug. 14 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Julie Andrew movies have a knack for turning chores and work into games and along with Divk van Dyke it becomes a hilarious comedy where the entire audience also enjoys the goings on in the film.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun and entertaining movie for everyone April 19 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
We really enjoyed watching this movie again. My husband and I had not seen it for several years, not since our children were teens. Now we are looking forward to having our grandchildren coming to visit and watching it with us!!! There is something for everyone in this movie ... music, comedy, drama, great acting, dancing cartoons, wonderful little songs, questionable behaviour addressed in wonderful ways, etc., etc.

Although this may be considered an 'Oldie' ... It's still very much a 'Goodie' as they say ... A good option for sharing some quality time with someone. Whether it's with the kids, grandchildren, spouse, by yourself, snuggling with your cat or dog ... it'll be an enjoyable time!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great even watching it without the kids Feb. 23 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Perhaps it was nostalgia for other days but we got a kick out of watching this as old folks - maybe it brought pleasant memories when our kids were tots. Julie Andrews and Dick Van Dyke did a great job of this fantasy.
