Disney studios made Mary Poppins in 1964, and it remains a perennial family favourite, with iconic performances from a cast including Julie Andrews and Dick Van Dyke, and the unforgettable songs of the Sherman Brothers. Walt Disney had tried to make the film as early as 1938, but P.L. Travers, the writer of the books on which the film is based, refused to give up the rights. Saving Mr. Banks imagines Disney’s negotiations with Mrs. Travers in run up the film’s production.
