"The grace of the effects makes it some kind of classic."

— Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader

"I find it irresistible. Plenty of other adults will feel the same way. And, needless to say, so will the kids."

— Bosley Crowther, New York Times

"Compared to even 'sophisticated' juvenile fodder, the sheer exuberance of Disney's adaptation of PL Travers' children's classic should tickle the most jaded fancy."

— Frances Dickinson, Time Out

"Mary Poppins is a picture that is, more than most, a triumph of many individual contributions. And its special triumph is that it seems to be the work of a single, cohesive intelligence."

— James Powers, Hollywood Reporter
