A trip down memory lane.

It was so great to see this on the big screen. I was touched that my kids enjoyed it as much as I had at their age. Luckily they're ten and twelve. I don't think they would have sat through it having been any younger.

Julie Andrews' first appearance on the screen is a signal triumph and she performs as easily as she sings, displaying a fresh type of beauty nicely adaptable to the color cameras. Van Dyke, as the happy-go-lucky jack-of-all-trades, scores heavily, the part permitting him to showcase his wide range of talents.

Exerts a formidable charm and is technically very accomplished. In a magical sequence, Mary, Bert, and the children wander through an animated landscape filled with cartoon deer, rabbits, and even penguins...
