London: Walt Disney Pictures, 1973. Original British full-color program for the 1973 release of the 1964 US film. Printed by Sackville Smeets Limited.
Based on Travers' 1934 novel and subsequent books. Julie Andrews is a magical nanny briefly employed by a dysfunctional Edwardian London family in this classic Disney feature that combines both live action and animated sequences. The film won five Academy Awards and was nominated for another seven, including Best Picture, making "Mary Poppins" the highest-awarded Walt Disney feature ever. Novelist Travers famously voiced her objections to the Disney adaptation of her character, particularly the animated scenes and musical numbers for which the film later gained so much acclaim.
8.5 x 11 inches, 8 leaves with color wrappers, saddle-stitched. Very Good plus, with light rubbing and creasing, and faint foxing. Scarce.
