Trivia

On an episode of National Public Radio's "Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me" (broadcast October 25, 2010) Dick Van Dyke was asked by host Peter Sagal about his notorious accent in this film. Van Dyke stated that his vocal coach was Irish-born J. Pat O'Malley, who had an even worse British accent. See more »

Goofs

When Mr. Banks is dismissed from the bank, he takes Michael's two pennies from his pocket and these are seen as Edward VII pennies, which are correct for the period. However the coins are worn and battered, as if they had been in circulation for decades, whereas the longest an Edward VII coin could possibly have been in circulation in 1910 would have been eight years, as such the coins should have looked nearly (if not actually) new.

Crazy Credits

In the end credits cast list, the actor playing Mr. Dawes, Sr. is initially shown as NAVCKID KEYD, then the letters unscramble themselves to show that this is a second role played by Dick Van Dyke. See more »

Alternate Versions

The original print opened with the Buena Vista Distribution logo, as all Disney films released after 1953 did then. In 2004, for the 40th Anniversary DVD, this was replaced with the Walt Disney Pictures logo. The same thing has been done with the other old Disney films ever since the studio changed its name from Walt Disney Productions to Walt Disney Pictures. The Buena Vista logo was restored for the 2013 Blu-ray release. See more »

Should have made AFI's top 100
25 August 2000 | by reignsongSee all my reviews

AFI blew it by omitting "Mary Poppins" from its 100 greatest American films. It's pure cinema, with state of the art special effects for its time. But the effects serve a lovely story, well told and acted, with charming song and dance numbers. The overture, underscoring Poppins's flight over London, is classic: worth the price of admission or rental; maybe the best overture ever, on screen or stage. I was 3 when the film debuted; I thought I'd die if I never got to see it again.
