A bit off general forum topics, but I wished to post this ...

 

Dame Julie Andrews turned 80 on October 1, 2015 Happy Birthday   :birthday:

Among personal quotes said to be by her are, Sometimes I'm so sweet, even I can't stand it.

She was earliest remembered for Mary Poppins, a 1964 American musical fantasy film directed by Robert Stevenson and produced by Walt Disney, with songs written and composed by the Sherman Brothers.
The screenplay is by Bill Walsh and Don DaGradi, loosely based on P. L. Travers' book series of the same name.

P. L. Travers - Wikipedia
The writer was known as Pamela Lyndon (P.L.) Travers, OBE (Order of the British Empire) Australian-born British novelist, actress, and journalist. Born Helen Lyndon Goff;  9 August 1899, and generally known within her family as Lyndon . She was known best for the Mary Poppins series of children's books featuring the magical English nanny Mary Poppins.
I did not fully understand the history behind Mary Poppins and that there was a series of books already written prior to The "Movie". The author had written several other similar books, but Walt Disney picked this one as the "Main" story about Mary Poppins and her deeds.

 

This one is actually about helping the Father (Mr Banks) who had drifted away from his family and not  just about teaching children how to behave.

 

The author was a bit "displeased" (it is said), by Walt Disney using animated characters (penguins) and some other minor changes made to the original script that she found not to be required.

 

But this is a post for Julie Andrews who fitted that part perfectly in my and many other peoples opinions and all of the other work she will leave us with............

It has been said that time heals all wounds. I don't agree. The wounds remain. Time - the mind, protecting its sanity - covers them with some scar tissue and the pain lessens, but it is never gone. Rose Kennedy

Thanks Condobloke.

At 60 and still sounding like she could be 40.

 

I could not make up my mind which clip to include with my post, but I think you picked a great one..
