It’s been 50 years since the marvelous Julie Andrews starred in one of the most popular Disney films of all time, Mary Poppins! To celebrate, here’s some facts about the film:

  1. Walt Disney first began pursuing the rights to the book in 1938, but was rejected by the book’s author, P.L. Travers until eventually she agreed in 1959.
  2. It took 2.5 years to develop the music for the film,
  3. Julie Andrews agreed to make the film after she was rejected for the role of Eliza Doolittle in the film version of My Fair Lady.
  4. When Andrews won the Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Leading Role (beating Hepburn) she thanked Warner for “making a wonderful movie and making it possible in the first place” for her to win.

  5. The film marked Julie Andrews’ big-screen debut.

  6. At the beginning of the film, some of the nannies waiting in line to apply for the nanny position were actually stuntmen in drag.

  7. Prior to this movie, Dick Van Dyke had never received any type of dance training.

  8. Julie Andrews’ hair was a wig.

  9. Dick Van Dyke really wanted to play the role of the villainous old bank president Mr. Dawes. He persuaded Walt Disney by screen-testing for the role and agreeing to make a donation to Cal Arts. At the end of the the film, his credit for the role first appears as “Navckid Keyd,” which is an anagram for Dick Van Dyke.

  10. According to Richard Sherman, it took him and his brother two weeks to come up with the word supercalifragilisticexpialidocious.

  11. The character of Mr. Banks is based on the author’s own father.

  12. Matthew Garber was paid 10 cents for every time they filmed the tea party scene. He was afraid of heights, so somebody offered to pay him a “bonus” 10 cents for every take.

  13. The “Step in Time” sequence had to be filmed twice because of a scratch on the film from the first take. The entire sequence took a week to film.

  14. Mary Poppins and Mrs. Banks never speak to each other in the film.

  15. Originally in the movie, there was a scene when all of the toys in the nursery come alive. Since it proved to be too scary for children, it was cut out.

  16. After the premiere, Travers did not watch the film for 20 years. 

  17. Dick Van Dyke’s cockney accent has been named one of the worst accent attempts in film history.  

  18. Walt Disney’s favorite song was ‘Feed the Birds’.

  19. There was almost a Mary Poppins ride at the Magic Kingdom.

  20. The official definition for supercalifragilisticexpialidocious is: extraordinarily good; wonderful.

Send me a letter and I’ll answer the corresponding question!

Audrey Hepburn: Have you ever gone hunting?

Bette Davis: What is your eye color?

Cary Grant: What is your favorite accent?

Doris Day: Are you a vegetarian?

Elizabeth Taylor: Do you wear perfume?

Fred Astaire:…



Really quite hopeless... used to have a life before I discovered various TV shows-I find I frequently become rather obsessed with some TV shows and their actors/actresses and before you know it it's exam season and no work has been done!
In denial over Ruth Evershed-because we all know she lives... And don't even get me started on Julie Andrews...
