THE REAL MARY POP­PINS

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - TV -

If noth­ing else, new movie Sav­ing Mr Banks has livened up the an­nual awards sea­son as English ac­tor Emma Thomp­son ( who plays Pamela Travers in the film) de­lights in mak­ing those Yanks un­com­fort­able with her off­beat red car­pet ut­ter­ings. Sav­ing Mr Banks is billed as the “real” story be­hind the 20- year de­bate be­tween Travers and Walt Dis­ney about how the story of the fly­ing nanny would be trans­formed into a film. This doc­u­men­tary dove­tails nicely into the film’s buzz ( and in­cludes in­ter­views with its cast), fur­ther ex­plor­ing Travers’ life.
