The film adap­ta­tion of P.L. Travers’ writ­ings, di­rected by Robert Steven­son and star­ring Julie An­drews and Dick Van Dyke (and some adorable an­i­mated pen­guins), was an in­stant clas­sic upon re­lease, nab­bing five Academy Awards— in­clud­ing Best Ac­tress for An­drews, Best Song (“Chim Chim Cher-ee”) and Best Vis­ual Ef­fects.
