Number 3 - Mary Poppins

Step forward Dick Van Dyke with your shockingly awful Cockney accent. Yes, number 3 is Mary Poppins. Based on the book this 1964 Disney film starred Julie Andrews as Mary Poppins and more memorably Dick Van Dyke as Bert the cockney jack of all trades with that voice. Mrs Banks with her suffergette campaigning, Mr Banks with his foul moods (until of course he comes across Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious). A charming musical, much like Oliver! but slightly better and the use of animation on top of real cinema is quite genius for a film of its time. Loving this film.
