DDW Pic 728. Mary Poppins
It was 49 years ago, today, that Mary Poppins had its world premiere at Grauman's Chinese Theater in Hollywood. It is appropriate that this film is part of the Great Movie Ride at Hollywood Studios, which is housed in a full scale replica of the Chinese Theater. Julie Andrews won the Academy Award for best actress for portraying Mary Poppins on the big screen. There were also several academy awards for the music in the film, which was written by the Sherman Brothers. The Sherman Brothers music can also be heard in several great Disney park attractions, including "it's a small world" and "Walt Disney's Carousel of Progress." I took this shot of the Mary Poppins scene in the Great Movie Ride a few weeks ago.
