Mary Poppins Spread
On This Day
The film originally included a scene where all of the toys in the nursery jumped to life. Proving too scary for children, it was edited out. However, the Broadway musical would go on make use of this magical device.
The film version of Mary Poppins was released on this day in 1964. The story of a magical nanny who works for an emotionally detached banker’s unhappy family sang and danced its way into the hearts and memories of millions.
Summation of Spread
The Three of Cups is indicative of the joy, dancing, and singing that accompanies any musical theater production. Joy of self-expression lies at the heart of musical theater, and this is precisely what the three women celebrate.
The Poppins story is rife with wonderful lessons and life advice. This spread is inspired by spoonfuls of sugar, loving rules, and examples set by the most famous nanny of all time.
