Mary Poppins (1964)

Julie Andrews is spritzy, the penguins are charming, the sceneries and choreography impressive. All this, plus some memorable songs!

The special effects are crude by today’s standards, however, and the animation too unembellished. The story is more than dubious, and Dick van Dyke’s grimacing is downright awful.

This turned out to be one of Walt Disney’s greatest successes, but it hasn’t contained enough supercalifragilisticexpialidociousness after all these years. Hardly in my book of childish entertainment.
