    Mary Poppins 50th Anniversary Blu-ray December 10th, 2013

    Yes! That's another point I was unpleasantly surprised about. Everything piled on ONE disc? We know for sure that the UK blu-ray is all on one disc.

    Mary Poppins 50th Anniversary Blu-ray December 10th, 2013

    Byron, all we know so far for new extras is the "Mary-OKE" sing a long, and "Becoming Mr Sherman". Everything else seems to be carried over from the previous editions. Maybe they added more to already existing documentary we can hope? If that's all there is new for extras, I find that very...

    Mary Poppins 50th Anniversary Blu-ray December 10th, 2013

    Thanks, Jason. That makes sense. It would be great if there was a book released on the history and production of the film at least. All the artwork and photographs that could be included would make a gorgeous presentation. There have been many Poppins storybooks through the years, but not...

    Mary Poppins 50th Anniversary Blu-ray December 10th, 2013

    Very excited that the released date is near, but why on earth is this great film not getting a special box set? I think it deserves a nice collector's boxed set like 'Wizard of Oz" or "Sound of Music" got. They could have included a book, postcards, extra features, etc. From what we've heard...

    Mary Poppins 50th Anniversary Blu-ray December 10th, 2013

    Mary Poppins was shown last night at Grauman's as part of the AFI Fest. Here's a nice clip of Dick Van Dyke on the red carpet. Halfway through he holds up the new blu-ray. Thought I'd post this here as it's a nice little preview of the slip cover.

    Gay-Friendly Blu-rays

    Thank you, Mark, for your kind reply! I was thinking the same thing about a set of Merchant-Ivory films. That reminds me of the CD set that was released in the 90's titled, "The E.M. Forster Trilogy" containing the soundtracks of the three films. Those Richard Robbins scores are so beautiful...

    Gay-Friendly Blu-rays

    Mark Walker said: Completely unrelated, folks may have heard that Criterion and its affiliated companies have lost the rights to the Merchant-Ivory films in their catalog. If you do not yet have "Maurice," on DVD, a landmark LGBT film for me and many others, now is the time to find a copy...

    Thank you for all the additional captures. It's interesting to see the same frame looking a variety of ways. She's so lovely.

    Here are captures from the 45th Anniv DVD and the 50th blu-ray trailer, just for general comparison. 45th DVD: blu-ray trailer as seen on Muppet Movie blu-ray:

    Mary Poppins 50th Anniversary Blu-ray December 10th, 2013

    Hi Ethan. I understand and I agree with much of your opinions on the trailer. Yes, I was referring to the same trailer you are.. the one included on the Muppet Movie blu-ray. I've heard from a couple of sources that worked on the piece and it seems that the footage in the blu-ray trailer is...

    Love that book, Ethan! When you say that the footage in the HD trailer is not what we'll be seeing on the blu-ray, do you know that for sure? The footage used in the blu-ray trailer looks just like the print I saw at a special event at Cinemark XD theaters last fall. It looked impressive and...

    Mary Poppins 50th Anniversary Blu-ray December 10th, 2013

    Yes, me too! :) I remember when I was young there was a lady visiting who saw that I was watching Chitty and said, "Oh Julie Andrews and Dick Van Dyke". I said, "no, that's not Julie Andrews". She said, "Yes, it is." Haha! One of the funniest things was when I showed someone a photo of my...

    Mary Poppins 50th Anniversary Blu-ray December 10th, 2013

    Yes, in that sense it does, but Hushabye reminds me of Chim Chim Cheree because of the melody being similar. You can almost sing them in counterpoint.

    I do too, and whenever I hear "Hushabye Mountain" I'm reminded of "Chim Chim Cher-ee".

    Mary Poppins 50th Anniversary Blu-ray December 10th, 2013

    I'm wondering what happened to red corset as well, Byron. When the original was on display at Disney World a few years ago, the red part was there as well. Perhaps this an alternate version? I think there was more than one. Some of the dresses had holes at the hips that would allow for the...

    The Great Muppet Caper And Muppet Treasure Island: Of Pirates & Pigs Preorder

    Great news that these are being released! "The Great Muppet Caper" is probably my favorite of all the Muppet films. I'll agree with Albert in that it deserved a standalone release. Somehow the cover and marketing make it seem less important than it is. The text on the cover of "2 Muppety...

    Mary Poppins 50th Anniversary Blu-ray December 10th, 2013

    This weekend at the Disney D23 Expo in Anahiem, they are celebrating the 50th Anniversary of Mary Poppins with an Archives exhibit. There are original costumes, props, and merchandise on display. Among them are her carpet bag, St. Paul's Cathedral water globe, and some of Peter Ellenshaw's...

    Mary Poppins 50th Anniversary Blu-ray December 10th, 2013

    I sure do remember that vinyl picture disc, Doug. I remember seeing it in stores in the early 80's. Wish I would have bought one. The other side is a picture from Jolly Holiday, right? Those were really nice. Here is one of the many rehearsal press photos released in 1964.

    Mary Poppins 50th Anniversary Blu-ray December 10th, 2013

    Simon, from what we've heard, this will be a new restoration that was recently done in 2012. If it's anything near the quality of the print that was screened last fall on select XD screens, we are in for a real treat. It looked incredible. Better than anything we've seen released so far.

    Mary Poppins 50th Anniversary Blu-ray December 10th, 2013

    Thank you, Guys!! I really enjoyed doing those. Love that cover, Matt. Their dancing figures against the blue is really nice. I finally located one of those music score books about a year ago. That particular one is hard to find in decent condition. I've heard a couple of people say...

    Great pictures of the memorabilia, everyone! Thanks for sharing it. :) Nice to see all the CDs, records, and books! I really liked that Jolly Holiday Little Golden Book when I was a kid. Wonderful illustrations. Mike, glad to see you have the "March Along With Mary Poppins" album. The...

    Mary Poppins 50th Anniversary Blu-ray December 10th, 2013

    Those dolls are great, Byron. The Dick Van Dyke one is a great likeness! In the spirit of Kevin's 1965 Christmas photo, here I am Christmas morning 1967, sitting next to my new Mary Poppins Talking Telephone. They were made by Hasbro and I remember when you would listen you'd hear Mary...

    Mary Poppins 50th Anniversary Blu-ray December 10th, 2013

    Kevin, That is great!! Thanks for scanning it. That has always been my favorite frame in the View Master reels. Your 1965 Christmas photo is perfect! Wonderful quality and very touching. Thanks for sharing it. Reading all of your thoughts on the CD release, I couldn't agree more. I spoke...

    Mary Poppins 50th Anniversary Blu-ray December 10th, 2013

    This is fun, remembering all the releases of Mary Poppins on home video cassette through the years. It reminded me of all the various covers, so I thought I'd put together a photo grouping. There were even a few more minor variations and releases than the ones pictured below, but these are the...

    Mary Poppins 50th Anniversary Blu-ray December 10th, 2013

    Last October, Cinemark theaters showed Mary Poppins in digital XD on an IMAX sized screen as part of their classic film series. The print was one I'd never seen before and its purity and detail were stunning. The opening credits looked a little rough and overly grainy, but overall the quality...

    Mary Poppins 50th Anniversary Blu-ray December 10th, 2013

    Doug, that's wonderful! :) Those View-Master reels of Mary Poppins were amazing. I loved those so much as a kid. Seeing those scenes in 3D was such a treat, especially since they were often at different angles than the shots we see in the film. I always loved the last frame on Reel 3, taken...

    Mary Poppins 50th Anniversary Blu-ray December 10th, 2013

    Great to see the ad for the first home video! It brings back memories. I was around 13 years old in 1980 and I remember seeing the Mary Poppins home video behind the counter in one of the Main Street shops in Disney World. My heart skipped a beat. The thought of being able to own the film was...
