Poppins In ’64

Critic David Edelstein has called the new flick, Mary Poppins Returns, which I probably will not see, “a bit of a dud.”  I see the original Mary Poppins (1964) the same way, except for the songs.  The agreeable score deserves a better, tighter story.  Again, what Edelstein wrote about the new Poppins is true of the old one:  “the plot is ungainly.”  Wasn’t the first time a Disney film was ungainly.
