Go See 'Saving Mr. Banks' But Not With Your Kids
I didn't see the movie again until I rented a Betamax version years later. I remembered all the songs because my parents bought me an album of "Marne Nixon Sings Mary Poppins" with music by the Sherman brothers. Marne Nixon is the soprano who sang for Audrey Hepburn in My Fair Lady. (Julie Andrews originated the role of Eliza Doolittle on Broadway, a play which was based on Shaw's Pygmalion.) Nixon also sang back-up for Andrews in the movie.
