Which film did you first see the lovely Julie Andrews?
The Sound of Music OR Mary Poppins?Fell in love with Ms. Andrews, when she was “a problem” to the sisters at a convent in Austria; she was cast as “Maria” in “The Sound of Music” (Release Date March 2, 1965). But she wasn’t really a problem. In fact, she was just an ordinary young girl, who … married a rich widower, became a good stepmother to his children from a previous marriage, and fast forward … together the entire family – all being extremely talented singers organized themselves as a singing group and escaped from their country which was taken over by the evil Germans. The movie was based on a true story. But let’s face it! Sometimes real life is just not all that. Not to a 10 year old anyway. It was the sound of the music that won me over. “Climb every mountain … follow every rainbow, ’til you find your dream”.
By contrast, became fascinated and fixated on Ms. Andrews when she arrived on the scene, by way of umbrella, as “Mary Poppins” (Release Date August 26, 1964); an extraordinary nanny with amazing powers who could do all sorts of wonderful things. Must confess, never bothered to learn the meaning of that famous word or break it down.
Figured “supercalifragilisticexpialidocious” must be describing who she really was or something she was able to do. (O.o) It was an accomplishment for me, just to learn how to spell the word. But now I know what it means too and I like it! :)
