-- Walt Disney's musical adaptation of P.L. Travers children's classic about the primly perfect nanny of the title (Julie Andrews) who uses her magical powers and common sense to straighten out the disorderly children and preoccupied parents of a London household at the turn of the century. Director Robert Stevenson fancifully integrates songs, dance numbers, animated characters and marvelous special effects into the live-action story which features a bright performance by Dick Van Dyke as a Cockney worker who also does a comic turn as a bank president. Entertaining family fantasy. (A-I) (G)
