It's said that when Pamela Travers, the creator of Mary Poppins, was asked what she thought of this movie, she said something like, "Oo-ooo-h, I shall be very silent." It's quite true that the Mary Poppins books and the movie are very different. For one, the Mary Poppins of the books is much more prim and prissy and proper than the Poppins played by Julie Andrews in the movie. There are four children in the first book (Jane, Michael, John and Barbara) and a fifth (Annabel) comes along in the next book. Some of the books also read more like a series of incidents than a tightly-knit story. The movie tells a definite story: of how a father who is estranged from his children gets re-united with them through all the strange and wonderful things that occur when the perfect nanny with magical powers literally blows into their house with the east wind. Some incidents from the books that are portrayed as written, others changed to suit the movie. When the movie deviates greatly from the book it is based on, I haved liked the books far more than the movie. "Mary Poppins" is the exception, where I feel the books and the movie have their own (and very different) charm. Julie Andrews is terrific, the setting of Edwardian London great, the songs are fabulous, and this is a movie to be treasured and seen over and over again down the years.

One of our all-time favorite movies from childhood! We bought this to add to our collection so as our granddaughter gets older, she will be able to watch it with us! Until then, we will enjoy watching it ourselves and just remembering the joys of our own childhood!

This is an all time classic that is absolutely fabulous. Mary Poppins is not only entertaining for young children, but is filled with british humor for parents/adults as well.
It is an excellent video, which everyone person and child should see at least once.

It's fine because the movie is fine. But there isn't any competition here. My grandchldren use it for repeated watching, and they love it. The DVD itself is nothing special. If you want the DVD, this is the only edition currently on the market.
