"Mary Poppins," 1964 was a musical fantasy feature film produced by Walt Disney Productions and was loosely based on P.L. Travers' book series of the same name. The film was directed by Robert Stevenson, with screenplay by Bill Walsh and Don DaGradi. "Mary Poppins" combined live-action with animation and stared Julie Andrews in the role of Mary Poppins; a practically perfect nanny who visited a dysfunctional family in London and employed a variety of techniques to improve the family's dynamic. Dick Van Dyke was brilliant in the supporting role of Bert.
"Mary Poppins" was released on August 27, 1964 to universal acclaim; receiving a total of 13 Academy Award nominations, including Best Picture. The film won five: Best Actress for Andrews, Best Film Editing, Best Original Music Score, Best Visual Effects, and Best Original Song for "Chim Chim Cher-ee." The popular success of the film in undoubtedly due to wonderful songs, that were written by the brilliant team of the Sherman Brothers.
This is a wonderful original hand painted production cel of Two Penguin Waiters from "Mary Poppins," 1964. The Penguin Waiters were wonderfully animated by Frank Thomas and Ollie Johnston, and not only set the table and serve tea to Mary Poppins, but also dance with Bert performing the song "Jolly Holiday." A very detailed and beautiful work of art from one of the greatest Walt Disney films, and a wonderful addition to any animation art collection!
