Julie Andrews was a well known treasure on the Broadway stage by the time she made her first movie. "Mary Poppins" was a delightful, musical, magical romp around the city of London. Mary (Julie Andrews) is hired by a stodgy British banker (David Tomlinson) as his children's nanny. Little does the banker or his children realize that Mary Poppins is much more than your typical baby sitter. We are tipped off to her unusual talents when she flies into the scene using her umbrella.
