DOORBELL RINGS AGAIN

0:01:530:01:54

-Mr Russell.

-Mrs Travers.

0:01:570:01:59

Like pink clouds on sticks.

0:02:060:02:08

Excuse me?

0:02:090:02:10

The cherry blossom, I was trying to think of what it looks like.

0:02:100:02:14

The car should be here by now.

0:02:140:02:16

May I use the phone?

0:02:160:02:19

-I cancelled it.

-You...?

0:02:190:02:22

What?

0:02:220:02:23

-Pamela?

-Mrs Travers.

-Mrs Travers...

0:02:240:02:28

-Why would you cancel the car?

-I shan't be going.

0:02:280:02:31

We've been through this.

0:02:310:02:33

-I've changed my mind.

-You made an agreement.

0:02:330:02:36

Do you understand? A verbal agreement.

0:02:360:02:39

Why in the world are you speaking to me as if I were a neonate?

0:02:390:02:42

-He's going to...

-What? What is he going to do? Sue?

0:02:420:02:44

He is very welcome to every penny I don't possess.

0:02:440:02:47

Look... I've represented you for a long time.

0:02:470:02:52

I like to think of you as a friend

0:02:520:02:55

Yes, I like to think of it, believe me, I know it's not reciprocated.

0:02:550:02:58

I would never suggest anything that would cause you anguish,

0:02:590:03:03

but there's no more money, Pamela!

0:03:030:03:04

Mrs Travers. Simply no more.

0:03:040:03:07

Sales have dried up, no more royalties.

0:03:070:03:10

You refuse to write further books, so...

0:03:100:03:12

Do you understand? I'm...

0:03:140:03:16

I'm frightened you don't understand what that means.

0:03:160:03:18

I know what he's going to do to her! She'll be cavorting and twinkling!

0:03:180:03:22

Careening towards a happy ending like a kamikaze!

0:03:220:03:24

We've been trying to do this deal for 20 years!

0:03:240:03:27

He's agreed to both your stipulations. No animation,

0:03:270:03:29

-script approval...

-Use her to pay my bills?

0:03:290:03:31

If I believed in a hell, I'd be sitting in its waiting room!

0:03:310:03:34

Script approval! He's never granted that before!

0:03:340:03:36

I don't know what else to do!

0:03:360:03:38

-Where's Polly?

-I fired her.

0:03:450:03:47

It's just as well. It seems I can't afford her any more anyway.

0:03:490:03:53

You don't know what she means to me.

0:03:570:03:59

-Polly?

-Of course not Polly!

0:04:000:04:03

For God's sake!

0:04:030:04:05

Los...Angeles.

0:04:050:04:08

You have only to go there and work for two weeks.

0:04:110:04:14

Collaborate.

0:04:140:04:15

-You haven't signed over the rights yet.

-Yet!

0:04:150:04:18

You must make this work, Mrs Travers.

0:04:180:04:20

-Oh, I must, must I?

-You need the money.

0:04:200:04:22

-I don't want...

-Stop saying money! It's a filthy, disgusting word!

0:04:220:04:25

-I am picking up the phone now, Mrs Travers...

-I-I have final say.

0:04:250:04:29

You do.

0:04:340:04:36

I have final say.

0:04:360:04:38

And if I don't like what they're doing to her...

0:04:380:04:41

Then you don't sign the papers.

0:04:410:04:43

He can't make the film unless you grant the rights.

0:04:430:04:45

It's an exploratory trip...

0:04:470:04:49

What do you say?

0:04:510:04:52

I...

0:04:540:04:55

I want to keep my house.

0:04:560:04:58

Ahem! Excuse me, madam, have you seen my daughter?

0:05:090:05:14

I was quite sure I left her around here somewhere!

0:05:140:05:18

Her name is Helen.

0:05:180:05:20

No, er... Shirley.

0:05:200:05:22

No, erm, um... Ah.

0:05:220:05:26

Good Lord... I've quite forgotten!

0:05:260:05:29

-Could it be Prunella?

-No!

0:05:290:05:32

-Pamela?

-No, no, no.

0:05:320:05:34

-I'm sure I have a special name for her...

-Ginty!

0:05:340:05:38

Why, thank you, ma'am! Ginty it is, of course! Yeah.

0:05:380:05:42

-Now, have you seen her?

-It's me!

0:05:420:05:45

SHE GIGGLES

0:05:460:05:49

Gosh! So it is!

0:05:490:05:51

Thank goodness for that!

0:05:510:05:53

I was positive I was going to be beheaded for losing...

0:05:550:05:57

Her Highness The Royal Princess Ginty McFeatherfluffy!

0:05:570:06:02

-Don't lose me!

-Never.

0:06:020:06:05

I promise.

0:06:050:06:07

I'll never lose you!

0:06:070:06:09

You ready? Are you sure?

0:06:090:06:11

BELL RINGS C'mon!

0:06:110:06:13

The adventure is about to begin! C'mon.

0:06:130:06:16

Up!

0:06:160:06:17

There we go.

0:06:170:06:19

SHE LAUGHS, HE NEIGHS

0:06:190:06:20

-Can I help you?

-I'm perfectly capable, thank you.

0:06:260:06:30

They've used all the space. So greedy.

0:06:300:06:32

I'll take it, madam. I can put it up in front.

0:06:320:06:34

I don't want it there. I would like it here

0:06:340:06:36

in the corresponding holding area for my assigned seat!

0:06:360:06:38

-The flight's closing in a moment, madam. I'll have to take it.

-Ah, ah!

0:06:380:06:41

You can move mine instead. It's the grey one.

0:06:410:06:44

Thank you.

0:06:440:06:45

Will the child be a nuisance? It's an 11-hour flight.

0:06:520:06:55

-Er...I don't...

-Jolly good.

0:06:580:07:00

I hope we crash.

0:07:080:07:10

CAR HORN HONKS

0:07:110:07:13

-WOMAN:

-Where's the carriage?

0:07:150:07:17

-A carriage? Who needs a carriage?

-But, darling, there's so many...

0:07:170:07:20

Every leisurely stroll is a gift, darling! It's a gift!

0:07:200:07:24

Now, Biddy... are you staying?

0:07:240:07:26

-You're coming with us?

-Mm-hm.

-Excellent!

0:07:260:07:29

-SHE SIGHS

-Thank you so much. For everything.

0:07:320:07:36

Thank you, Miss.

0:07:360:07:38

Hurry up, everyone! We mustn't be late for the train.

0:07:380:07:41

-All aboard! Everybody ready?

-Yes.

0:07:430:07:46

-See you soon, Katie Nanna!

-Take care, love.

0:07:470:07:49

Everybody ready?

0:07:500:07:52

Walking bus!

0:07:540:07:55

-Left, right! Left, right!

-Miss? Miss...

0:07:550:07:58

Thank you.

0:08:010:08:02

Left! Left, right, left... And, one, two, three!

0:08:130:08:17

New town, new job, new bank. New life.

0:08:170:08:21

Come on, my little ducklings! CHILDREN GIGGLE

0:08:210:08:25

Left, right, left... C'mon, come along!

0:08:350:08:38

0:09:000:09:02

Ginty. Come on, my love.

TRAIN WHISTLE BLOWS

-TANNOY BEEPS

-Mmm...

0:09:520:09:54

'Ladies and gentlemen,

0:09:540:09:56

'we are beginning our descent into Los Angeles.'

0:09:560:09:58

BUZZ OF CONVERSATION

0:10:100:10:13

Oh, he does, does he?

0:10:230:10:25

Travers? PL Travers?

0:10:250:10:27

-"Mrs".

-OK.

0:10:270:10:28

Well, welcome, Mrs PL Travers. Welcome to the City of Angels.

0:10:280:10:32

Let me take those for you.

0:10:320:10:33

-I'm perfectly capable...

-Come.

-Oh, never mind.

0:10:330:10:36

The sun came out to say hello just to you.

0:10:420:10:45

Don't be preposterous.

0:10:450:10:47

It smells, like...

0:10:470:10:49

-Jasmine.

-Chlorine and sweat. Ugh!

0:10:490:10:52

It's dreadful.

0:10:520:10:54

Ugh!

0:10:550:10:56

GLASS CLINKS

0:11:130:11:14

Absurd.

0:11:170:11:18

Are you all right back there, Mrs PL Travers?

0:11:180:11:20

It's not "Mrs PL".

0:11:200:11:22

It's just "Mrs".

0:11:220:11:23

Oh...

0:11:230:11:25

It's so hot.

0:11:250:11:27

Oh. No problemo!

0:11:270:11:29

No problemo.

0:11:290:11:30

We got a brand-new air-conditioning system, Mrs.

0:11:300:11:32

Yeah.

0:11:320:11:34

Just about make you feel like

0:11:340:11:35

you're in good old Eng-er-land again!

0:11:350:11:38

I tell you, the things they can put in cars these days.

0:11:380:11:40

Gosh almight...

0:11:400:11:42

No problemo.

0:11:440:11:45

And here we are, ma'am.

0:12:000:12:03

-Thank you.

-Ma'am?

0:12:070:12:09

Would you like me to unpack for you, ma'am?

0:12:090:12:12

Young man, if it is your ambition to handle ladies' garments,

0:12:120:12:15

may I suggest you take employment in a launderette?

0:12:150:12:17

Odd.

0:12:200:12:21

Odd, odd...

0:12:210:12:24

Oh, dear.

0:12:290:12:31

For heaven's sake.

0:12:310:12:33

What on earth is...?

0:12:330:12:36

How...? What on...?

0:12:370:12:39

No, no, no. This will never do.

0:12:460:12:49

Absolutely no pears.

0:12:490:12:51

No pears.

0:12:510:12:53

A palace.

0:13:060:13:08

Complete with mighty steed.

0:13:080:13:10

-And chickens.

-FATHER LAUGHS

0:13:100:13:13

-Oh, my.

-Oh, we'll make beautiful memories here, my angel.

0:13:130:13:16

Come on.

0:13:160:13:18

-All right?

-Mmm.

-Girls. Come on.

0:13:180:13:21

DOGS BARK

0:13:210:13:22

In this house, you get to share a room!

0:13:220:13:27

Good riddance.

0:13:510:13:53

Now...

0:13:530:13:55

Ridiculous.

0:13:590:14:01

How old do they think I am?

0:14:010:14:04

Five years old, or something.

0:14:050:14:07

Poor AA Milne.

0:14:090:14:12

Ghastly business.

0:14:120:14:13

Duck, dog, out.

0:14:130:14:15

Much better.

0:14:260:14:27

And you can stay there until you learn the art of subtlety.

0:14:380:14:42

-Oh!

-'Lassie!'

0:15:010:15:03

Ah!

0:15:060:15:07

There you are.

0:15:080:15:10

LAUGHING: 'Don't worry.

0:15:100:15:12

'There's nothing wrong with your television set.

0:15:120:15:14

'This is a pixie bell.

0:15:140:15:15

'The sound is much too high for human ears.

0:15:150:15:18

'Oh!

0:15:180:15:20

'There you are, Tink.

0:15:200:15:22

'Hey!

0:15:220:15:24

'Hey! Get that stuff off of me!

0:15:240:15:28

'You know, if you're familiar with our story of Peter Pan,

0:15:280:15:32

'you know a little sprinkling of Tinker Bell's fairy dust

0:15:320:15:34

'can make you fly. Huh.

0:15:340:15:36

'Where are you going, Tink? Haven't you forgotten something?'

0:15:360:15:39

Off!

0:15:390:15:40

That's how we deal with YOU.

0:15:400:15:42

Good morning, Mrs.

0:15:580:15:59

It's not "Mrs". It's... Never mind.

0:15:590:16:02

We're just not going to get it right, are we?

0:16:020:16:04

What's that?

0:16:040:16:06

-Will it be the same driver every day?

-Yes, ma'am.

0:16:060:16:10

I am all yours.

0:16:100:16:12

-Hey, sun came out again.

-You say it as if you're surprised.

0:16:140:16:17

As if the sun were particular about for whom it appears.

0:16:170:16:20

-It seems you think that

-I

-am responsible for

0:16:200:16:22

its miraculous dawning every day. For heaven's sake, it's California.

0:16:220:16:25

Certainly is!

0:16:250:16:27

I'd so much rather be accountable for the rain.

0:16:330:16:36

Oh, that's sad.

0:16:360:16:37

Sad is entirely the wrong emotion.

0:16:370:16:40

I shan't bother explaining why. It would just... Zip!

0:16:400:16:43

Huh. Okey dokey.

0:16:430:16:45

The rain brings life.

0:16:470:16:49

So does the sun!

0:16:520:16:54

-Be quiet.

-Yes, ma'am.

0:16:550:16:56

I'll get that, sir.

0:17:180:17:19

-Got it?

-Yes, sir.

0:17:190:17:22

Good morning, Pamela.

0:17:250:17:27

It is so discomfiting to hear a perfect stranger

0:17:270:17:30

use my first name.

0:17:300:17:32

"Mrs Travers", please.

0:17:320:17:33

I do apologise, Mrs Travers.

0:17:330:17:36

I'm Don DaGradi, the scriptwriter.

0:17:360:17:39

Co-scriptwriter. I shall certainly be having my say, Mr DiGradi.

0:17:390:17:43

"DaGradi".

0:17:430:17:45

Uh... Wonderful, I welcome your input.

0:17:450:17:47

If, indeed, we ever sign off on a script.

0:17:470:17:49

Right. Um...

0:17:500:17:52

This is the rest of your team.

0:17:520:17:54

This is Dick and Bob Sherman, music and lyrics.

0:17:540:17:56

Boys, the one and only Mrs PL Travers.

0:17:560:17:58

The creator of our beloved Mary.

0:17:580:18:00

-Poppins.

-Who else?

-"Mary Poppins".

0:18:000:18:02

Never, ever just "Mary".

0:18:020:18:05

-It's a pleasure to meet you.

-Hello.

0:18:050:18:06

-I fear we shan't be acquainted for very long.

-Why is that?

0:18:060:18:09

Because these books simply do not

0:18:090:18:11

lend themselves to chirping and prancing.

0:18:110:18:14

No, it's certainly not a musical.

0:18:140:18:16

Now, where is Mr Disney?

0:18:160:18:17

I should so much like to get this started and finished

0:18:170:18:20

as briskly as is humanly possible. Perhaps someone could

0:18:200:18:22

point me in his direction. I'd be so grateful.

0:18:220:18:23

-Thank you.

-We were hoping to give you a little tour of the studio.

0:18:230:18:27

-No, thank you.

-Walt just wanted to show the place off.

0:18:270:18:30

No-one likes a show-off.

0:18:300:18:33

Mrs Travers, it's quite a long way.

0:18:330:18:35

Not a musical?

0:18:350:18:37

I am perfectly capable of walking.

0:18:410:18:44

Good morning.

0:18:550:18:56

Could you let Mr Disney know I've arrived, please?

0:18:560:18:58

Absolutely. Please, have a seat.

0:18:580:19:00

Oh, no, there's no need.

0:19:000:19:01

He'll be just a moment, Mrs Travers.

0:19:010:19:05

Why don't we sit?

0:19:050:19:07

(She's here.)

0:19:140:19:15

Uh...

0:19:150:19:17

A word of advice, Mrs Travers, if I may.

0:19:170:19:19

You may. Whether I heed it or not will be another matter entirely.

0:19:190:19:22

Wow.

0:19:230:19:24

Uh, it's just that

0:19:240:19:26

he can't stand being called "Mr Disney".

0:19:260:19:29

We're all on a first-name basis here.

0:19:290:19:32

Mmm.

0:19:320:19:33

LOUD COUGHING

0:19:330:19:35

Well, here you are at last.

0:19:380:19:41

Oh, my dear gal,

0:19:410:19:43

you can't imagine how excited I am to finally meet you.

0:19:430:19:48

HE LAUGHS

0:19:480:19:49

It's an honour, Mr Disney.

0:19:490:19:50

Oh, "Walt". Now, you gotta call me Walt.

0:19:500:19:52

-Mr Disney was my old man, isn't that right, Don?

-Absolutely, Walt.

0:19:520:19:55

Come here. Come here.

0:19:550:19:56

Tommie.

0:19:560:19:58

Say hello to the one and only Pamela Travers.

0:19:580:20:02

It's so nice to meet you.

0:20:020:20:05

You know, I can't believe it.

0:20:050:20:06

PL Travers, right here in my office.

0:20:060:20:09

After all these years, almost 20 of them?

0:20:090:20:11

Mmm. Yes.

0:20:110:20:13

20 long years.

0:20:130:20:15

I wish you could have seen me, then, Pam.

0:20:150:20:17

Lean as a whippet, I was.

0:20:170:20:19

A racehorse.

0:20:190:20:21

Well, anyway.

0:20:210:20:22

Now, here you are, and look at you.

0:20:220:20:24

I could just eat you up.

0:20:240:20:26

Uh... That wouldn't be appropriate.

0:20:260:20:29

You know what... When Diane, here,

0:20:300:20:32

was about, uh, seven years old...

0:20:320:20:34

Oh, can I get you something to drink? A coffee, or...

0:20:340:20:36

A pot of tea would be most welcome.

0:20:360:20:38

Anyway, she was about seven years old

0:20:380:20:40

when I was walking past her room

0:20:400:20:41

and she was on her bed reading to her sister, Sharon,

0:20:410:20:44

and those girls, they were just giggling their little socks off.

0:20:440:20:47

-Tommie?

-Yes?

0:20:470:20:48

-A hot tea for Pamela and me.

-Right away, Walt.

0:20:480:20:50

Ah, you're a doll.

0:20:500:20:52

She is. She's a doll.

0:20:520:20:54

Anyways, I asked them, I said, "Girls, what's so funny?"

0:20:540:20:59

And Diane said to me,

0:20:590:21:01

-"Why, Daddy, Mary Poppins."

-HE LAUGHS

0:21:010:21:04

I didn't even know what a Mary Poppins was.

0:21:050:21:09

But then she gave me one of your books,

0:21:090:21:10

and, oh, by gosh, my imagination caught on fire.

0:21:100:21:13

Absolutely on fire.

0:21:130:21:15

And those embers have burned ever since, as you know.

0:21:150:21:17

-I do. Yes.

-20 years.

0:21:170:21:19

So you keep saying.

0:21:190:21:21

Pam, a man cannot break a promise he's made to his kids.

0:21:210:21:26

No matter how long it takes for him to make it come true.

0:21:260:21:30

Now, you've kept me dangling all this time.

0:21:300:21:32

But now, I gotcha.

0:21:320:21:34

"Gotcha", indeed.

0:21:340:21:36

Mr Disney, if you have "dangled",

0:21:360:21:39

it is at the end of a rope you have fashioned for yourself.

0:21:390:21:42

I was perfectly clear when you approached me 20 years ago

0:21:420:21:44

that she wasn't for sale. And I was clear again

0:21:440:21:46

when you approached me the following year and clear again

0:21:460:21:49

when you approached me every annum for the subsequent 18 years,

0:21:490:21:52

and, quite honestly, I feel corralled.

0:21:520:21:54

Oh, now, Pam, the last thing I want to do is make you feel as though...

0:21:540:21:57

Would you mind? My name is "Mrs Travers". I do...

0:21:570:21:59

See, I promised them, Pam. Now, that's a fact.

0:21:590:22:01

You got kids?

0:22:010:22:02

No. Well, not precisely.

0:22:020:22:04

I have never, and absolutely never,

0:22:040:22:06

gone back on a promise I made to either one of my daughters.

0:22:060:22:08

-Now, that's what being "Daddy" is all about, right?

-Is it?

0:22:080:22:12

See, our motion picture is not just going to make my kids happy.

0:22:120:22:15

It's going to make all kids happy. Adults, too.

0:22:150:22:18

Because my guys are going to do things with it

0:22:180:22:20

that are revolutionary, Pam. Revolutionary!

0:22:200:22:22

Your Mary Poppins is going to literally fly off the pages

0:22:220:22:25

of your books.

0:22:250:22:26

Oh. Thank you, Tommie.

0:22:260:22:27

This magical woman who has only lived inside your head,

0:22:270:22:30

well, you are going to be able to meet her, speak to her.

0:22:300:22:32

You're going to hear her sing.

0:22:320:22:33

Now, the singing, I'm very glad you've come to that.

0:22:330:22:36

Oh! Milk in first, please.

0:22:360:22:38

Then the tea.

0:22:380:22:40

And a spoonful of sugar.

0:22:400:22:42

You don't intend for this film to be a musical?

0:22:430:22:46

I absolutely do.

0:22:460:22:48

No.

0:22:480:22:49

-No?

-No.

0:22:490:22:52

Mr Disney, Mary Poppins does not sing.

0:22:520:22:56

Yes, she does.

0:22:560:22:58

-When?

-In your books.

0:22:580:23:00

No, those aren't songs. They're recitations.

0:23:000:23:02

She's not a giddy woman. She's doesn't jig about.

0:23:020:23:06

I mean, singing is frivolous.

0:23:060:23:07

It's wholly unnecessary in a governess, an educatress.

0:23:070:23:10

No, it would simply ruin it.

0:23:100:23:12

I won't have her turned into one of your silly cartoons.

0:23:120:23:15

Now, Pam...

0:23:250:23:26

HE CLEARS HIS THROAT

0:23:260:23:28

I want you to know

0:23:310:23:33

that the last thing I would do,

0:23:330:23:35

the very last thing,

0:23:350:23:37

is tarnish a story I have cherished.

0:23:370:23:39

Now, the pages of your books are worn to tissue.

0:23:390:23:44

They are dog-eared and falling out,

0:23:440:23:46

because I have pored over them, gripped and tormented.

0:23:460:23:48

Because I love her, Pam.

0:23:480:23:51

I love Mary Poppins.

0:23:510:23:53

And you, you have got to share her with me.

0:23:530:23:58

And nothing happens without your say-so.

0:24:010:24:04

Quite right.

0:24:040:24:05

It's all right here in the rights agreement

0:24:050:24:07

that was approved by your agent.

0:24:070:24:10

Uh... Dermot?

0:24:100:24:11

Diarmuid.

0:24:110:24:12

Dar...

0:24:120:24:13

A live-action film. No animation.

0:24:130:24:15

Live-action. Here's a pen.

0:24:150:24:17

I'd like this on tape.

0:24:190:24:21

On tape?

0:24:210:24:22

Mmm. Your promise,

0:24:220:24:23

and all the conversations we have here, on tape.

0:24:230:24:26

Ah-ha. There you are.

0:24:300:24:31

Mary Poppins and the Bankses, they are family to me.

0:24:330:24:37

I understand that. I do.

0:24:370:24:40

Well, then. Shall we begin?

0:24:400:24:44

Let's make something wonderful.

0:24:460:24:47

Well, let's see if that's at all possible.

0:24:470:24:50

Whoa...

0:24:580:24:59

(Damn!)

0:24:590:25:01

Testing. One, two, three.

0:25:110:25:14

'Testing. One, two.'

0:25:160:25:18

What is all this jollification?

0:25:190:25:23

We've got a whole script to get through. It'll be a long day, Mrs T.

0:25:230:25:27

Mrs Travers.

0:25:270:25:29

You could save a starving country

0:25:290:25:31

with benefaction from this room alone.

0:25:310:25:32

It's just, ugh, so vulgar.

0:25:320:25:34

Did you turn on the thing?

0:25:340:25:36

Uh...

0:25:360:25:38

Yes. Now, let us begin.

0:25:390:25:42

Mmm. So...

0:25:420:25:44

"Scene one."

0:25:440:25:45

"Exterior, Cherry Tree Lane..." "Ext"? What's "Ext"?

0:25:450:25:49

"Exterior."

0:25:500:25:51

It means the scene takes place outside.

0:25:510:25:55

Oh, I see. It is an abbreviation.

0:25:550:25:57

I'm so sorry, Mr DaGradi, do you feel that you should be...?

0:25:570:26:00

Oh. Please, be my guest, Mrs Travers.

0:26:000:26:02

I do think it's best. I have the most practice.

0:26:020:26:04

Readings of my books, you know?

0:26:040:26:06

-Absolutely.

-Anyway.

0:26:060:26:08

"Scene one. Exterior.

0:26:080:26:09

"17, Cherry Tree Lane, London. Day."

0:26:090:26:14

-Yes, that's good. That can stay.

-That's just the scene heading.

0:26:140:26:16

Although, I do think we should say "Number 17", instead of just "17".

0:26:160:26:19

It's proper, yes?

0:26:190:26:20

BOTH: No-one's going to see it.

0:26:200:26:21

I will see it.

0:26:210:26:24

Write it down. Write it down. Chop, chop.

0:26:240:26:26

Is that on the tape? Have we got that?

0:26:260:26:28

Uh... Yes.

0:26:280:26:29

Very good. Onwards.

0:26:290:26:31

I'm sorry to interrupt.

0:26:310:26:34

-Is that a joke?

-Excuse me?

0:26:340:26:36

Do you think you are a comedienne?

0:26:360:26:38

-I'm sorry, I don't understand.

-Well, it's...

0:26:380:26:41

-Unbelievable. In the way.

-Dolly, I think we're all set with food.

0:26:410:26:45

Thank you.

0:26:450:26:47

"Scene one. Exterior.

0:26:470:26:49

"Number 17, Cherry Tree Lane, London. Day."

0:26:490:26:53

"Bert, a one-man..." Oh, the rumour is that this is

0:26:530:26:56

-to be your Mr Van Dyke. Is that right?

-We do hope so.

0:26:560:26:58

We'll see about that. It's a horrid idea.

0:26:580:27:00

Dick is one of the greats.

0:27:000:27:01

Dick Van Dyke?

0:27:030:27:05

Yes.

0:27:050:27:06

Robert, my dear.

0:27:070:27:10

Olivier is one of the greats.

0:27:100:27:12

Burton, Guinness, greats without question.

0:27:120:27:15

I can assure... I can assure you that Dick Van Dyke is not.

0:27:150:27:20

Dick Van Dyke.

0:27:200:27:22

Uh... "Bert, a one-man band, plays to a small gathering

0:27:220:27:25

"outside the gates to the park.

0:27:250:27:27

"Bert..." Yes, "Bert says..."

0:27:270:27:28

You can do Bert.

0:27:280:27:29

-Thank you. Um...

-Go on.

0:27:290:27:32

Guys, shall we...

0:27:320:27:33

..give it a whirl?

0:27:350:27:36

What's happening? What are you doing?

0:27:360:27:40

PIANO: Chords From Chim Chim Cher-ee from Mary Poppins

0:27:400:27:43

"All right, ladies and gents,

0:27:430:27:45

"comical poem

0:27:450:27:46

"suitable for the occasion.

0:27:460:27:48

"Extemporised and thought up before your very eyes.

0:27:480:27:52

"All right, here we go."

0:27:520:27:55

# Room here for everyone Gather around

0:27:550:27:59

# The Constable's responstable Now, how does that sound? #

0:27:590:28:02

-No, no, no! No, no, no!

-SHE SLAMS THE TABLE

0:28:020:28:04

"Responstable" is not a word.

0:28:040:28:08

We made it up.

0:28:090:28:10

Well, un-make it up.

0:28:100:28:13

Responstable...?

0:28:290:28:32

There's my girl.

0:28:550:28:58

Here's a good boy. Come on.

0:29:010:29:02

That's it, Albert, give Ginty a smooch.

0:29:020:29:04

There you go. There you go.

0:29:040:29:06

Oh.

0:29:090:29:11

Poor old Albert.

0:29:130:29:15

He's your secret uncle, you know.

0:29:150:29:17

But a miserable, horrid witch turned him into a nag.

0:29:170:29:21

Why did she do that?

0:29:210:29:23

She said she hated the sound of his laugh.

0:29:230:29:26

Poor Uncle Albert.

0:29:270:29:28

Yeah.

0:29:280:29:29

How can we fix him?

0:29:290:29:31

We have to teach the witch to be happy again.

0:29:310:29:35

How?

0:29:350:29:36

Well,

0:29:360:29:38

I'm not quite sure, darling.

0:29:380:29:40

Do you want to know what it feels like to fly, Ginty?

0:29:450:29:47

Come on. Albert, you old nag.

0:29:490:29:52

Come here.

0:29:520:29:53

Up you come.

0:29:560:29:57

Three, two, one.

0:30:000:30:01

-Do you trust me?

-Yes.

0:30:050:30:07

H'yah!

0:30:080:30:10

Nobody walks.

0:30:270:30:28

A leisurely stroll is a gift.

0:30:310:30:33

Beautiful, ain't it?

0:30:530:30:55

If you like that sort of thing.

0:30:560:30:58

I do.

0:30:580:31:00

We do find it's helpful to have a visual.

0:31:210:31:23

Plus, it's fun.

0:31:230:31:26

Oh, no, no. No, no. Goodness me, no.

0:31:280:31:30

No?

0:31:300:31:32

The Banks' house doesn't look like that. No, no.

0:31:320:31:35

Mm-hm.

0:31:350:31:36

My house is a terraced house

0:31:360:31:39

with a pink door, white-bricked, with a crack in the gable.

0:31:390:31:42

OK, we get it. The house is not what you pictured.

0:31:420:31:46

The windows are lead-lined and the flower boxes grow

0:31:460:31:49

pink nasturtiums to go with the pink door. Have we got that?

0:31:490:31:52

Oh, dear, it's all a big mistake. It's all wrong.

0:31:520:31:55

It's ALL wrong?

0:31:550:31:56

Well, it's too grand!

0:31:560:31:58

The Bankses are normal, everyday sort of people,

0:31:580:32:00

and this isn't normal. This isn't "everyday". They're not aristocrats.

0:32:000:32:04

OK.

0:32:200:32:21

Oh.

0:32:260:32:27

Do I even have to say it?

0:32:270:32:29

I'm afraid so.

0:32:290:32:31

Why in the world have you made Mrs Banks a silly suffragette?

0:32:310:32:34

I wonder if Emmeline P would agree with that adjective.

0:32:340:32:37

Quite possibly, looking back.

0:32:370:32:39

It does seem strange

0:32:390:32:41

that Mrs Banks allows her kids to spend all of their time

0:32:410:32:44

with the nanny, when she doesn't have a job to speak of.

0:32:440:32:46

Are you calling Mrs Banks neglectful?

0:32:460:32:48

-Yep.

-No, of course not.

0:32:480:32:50

We just thought that giving her a job would go some way to explain...

0:32:500:32:53

Being a mother is a job. It's a very difficult job,

0:32:530:32:55

and one that not everyone is up to.

0:32:550:32:56

One that not everyone should have taken on in the first place.

0:32:560:32:59

And I won't have her called Cynthia.

0:32:590:33:01

Absolutely not. It feels... it feels unlucky.

0:33:010:33:04

It needs to be something warm.

0:33:040:33:06

Something a bit, I don't know, sexy.

0:33:060:33:10

How about Mavis?

0:33:100:33:11

Uh...

0:33:110:33:13

-"Sybil"?

-Great.

0:33:130:33:14

-Prudence?

-Gwendolyn?

-Perfect.

-Winifred.

0:33:140:33:17

-Winifred? Winifred.

-I could go with Winifred.

0:33:170:33:20

That's because it's very good.

0:33:200:33:22

This isn't Mr Banks. This isn't... This isn't him.

0:33:220:33:26

-Uh, yes, that's Mr Banks.

-But he has a set of moustaches.

0:33:260:33:29

In the book, he has them.

0:33:290:33:31

I told the illustrator I did not like the facial hair,

0:33:310:33:33

but she chose to ignore me.

0:33:330:33:35

Now this time around, this is my film,

0:33:350:33:37

and I shall have my way.

0:33:370:33:38

Mrs Travers, this is a specific request from Walt.

0:33:380:33:41

Why?

0:33:410:33:43

-Well, I think he identifies...

-He didn't, he doesn't.

0:33:430:33:45

Mr Banks is clean-shaven.

0:33:450:33:46

Does it matter?

0:33:460:33:49

Bob...

0:33:490:33:51

Does it matter?

0:33:530:33:55

Bob...

0:33:550:33:56

You can wait outside.

0:33:580:34:01

I shan't say it again, Robert.

0:34:030:34:06

What is wrong with his leg?

0:34:200:34:21

He got shot.

0:34:210:34:22

(That's hardly surprising.)

0:34:220:34:24

Can I expect any more drama from anyone else?

0:34:240:34:26

CHILDREN LAUGH AND SHOUT

0:34:280:34:30

Why do you do that?

0:34:580:34:59

For you, my dear.

0:35:010:35:02

Tell me, Gintamina...

0:35:030:35:06

..which kind of kisses do you prefer?

0:35:070:35:10

Scratchy ones, or silky ones?

0:35:110:35:13

Silky ones.

0:35:130:35:15

Well, then, swish!

0:35:170:35:19

Swoosh!

0:35:210:35:22

A man must shave for to spare his daughter's cheeks.

0:35:230:35:27

Swish.

0:35:340:35:35

Swoosh.

0:35:350:35:36

Swoosh.

0:35:370:35:39

# Supercalifragilistic- expialidocious! #

0:35:440:35:47

Stop! Stop! Stop!

0:35:470:35:48

What on earth are you talking about?

0:35:480:35:50

"Supercali..."? "Supercal..."? Or whatever the infernal thing is.

0:35:500:35:54

It's something you say when you don't know what to say.

0:35:540:35:57

Well, I always know what to say.

0:35:570:35:59

If you so much as step one foot in here with that trolley,

0:35:590:36:02

I shall scream.

0:36:020:36:04

One cannot live on cake alone.

0:36:040:36:06

'Well, hit me with it.'

0:36:080:36:09

She has a lot of...ideas.

0:36:090:36:13

Yeah? What kind of ideas?

0:36:130:36:16

The name "Cynthia" has been changed to "Winifred".

0:36:170:36:20

Fine, fine, fine.

0:36:200:36:21

She won't approve Dick Van Dyke.

0:36:210:36:24

HE LAUGHS

0:36:240:36:26

SHE GIGGLES

0:36:260:36:28

The sketches of the Banks house make it look too opulent.

0:36:280:36:32

There must be no hint of romance between Mary Poppins and Bert.

0:36:320:36:37

She wants to know why Mr Banks has been given a moustache.

0:36:370:36:39

Oh, I asked for that.

0:36:390:36:41

Yes, they told her that, but she wants to know why.

0:36:410:36:44

Because I asked for it.

0:36:440:36:46

Right. Of course.

0:36:460:36:49

Uh, the tape measure Mary Poppins uses

0:36:490:36:51

to record Jane and Michael's height must be a roll tape, not a ruler.

0:36:510:36:55

She only wants green vegetables and broth.

0:36:550:36:58

I don't know what that is,

0:36:580:36:59

but she wants it in the room from now on.

0:36:590:37:02

And... Oh!

0:37:020:37:03

She doesn't want the colour red in the film.

0:37:030:37:07

At all.

0:37:070:37:09

I've simply gone off the colour.

0:37:090:37:12

We can't make the picture without the colour red.

0:37:120:37:15

The film is set in London, for Pete's sake.

0:37:150:37:17

And?

0:37:170:37:18

Well, there's buses and mailboxes and guards' uniforms and things.

0:37:180:37:24

And heck, the English flag.

0:37:240:37:26

I understand your predicament, Mr Disney, I do.

0:37:260:37:29

Uh, it's just...

0:37:290:37:31

I don't know what it is.

0:37:310:37:33

I'm suddenly very anti-red.

0:37:330:37:36

I shan't be wearing it ever again.

0:37:360:37:38

Is this a test, Pamela?

0:37:380:37:40

Are you requiring proof as to how much I want to make you happy,

0:37:400:37:43

so we can create this beautiful thing together?

0:37:430:37:46

I took you at your word, Mr Disney.

0:37:470:37:50

And it seems my first stipulation has been denied.

0:37:500:37:53

There will be many more.

0:37:530:37:55

So, perhaps we should just call it quits

0:37:550:37:59

and I should hand you back these.

0:37:590:38:01

All right.

0:38:150:38:17

No red in the picture.

0:38:170:38:19

-Walt.

-Walt!

0:38:190:38:21

Wait.

0:38:210:38:22

He doesn't have the rights.

0:38:320:38:34

Quite.

0:38:340:38:36

Tommie?

0:38:420:38:43

Scotch Mist?

0:38:460:38:48

What do you think?

0:38:490:38:50

-What do I think, what?

-You're a woman.

0:38:500:38:53

Oh, that's a canny observation, Walt.

0:38:530:38:56

What am I missing here?

0:38:560:38:58

You think the female of the species has some sort of psychic insight

0:38:590:39:02

when it comes to others of her kind?

0:39:020:39:05

We don't.

0:39:050:39:07

You're going to get an ulcer with all that unriddling.

0:39:070:39:09

Give it up.

0:39:090:39:11

That woman.

0:39:140:39:16

Good afternoon, ma'am. What can I fix you?

0:39:490:39:51

A pot of tea, if you please.

0:39:510:39:53

Sure thing.

0:39:530:39:55

Ma'am.

0:40:100:40:11

Tea is balm for the soul, don't you agree?

0:40:130:40:17

Catch the chook!

0:40:270:40:28

Grab her!

0:40:280:40:30

Girls, will you please just stop?

0:40:340:40:37

BABY CRIES

0:40:370:40:38

It's OK, it's OK. I know, I know.

0:40:380:40:42

In you go.

0:40:420:40:44

All right?

0:40:450:40:46

CRYING CONTINUES

0:40:460:40:48

It's OK.

0:40:480:40:51

Ahoy, Goffs! Ahoy!

0:40:510:40:53

Father!

0:40:530:40:54

Whoa! That's better.

0:40:540:40:57

What a wonderful surprise.

0:40:590:41:01

Did you finish early?

0:41:010:41:03

No, I couldn't stop thinking of my beautiful girls

0:41:030:41:06

on this beautiful day in this beautiful place.

0:41:060:41:09

And I thought, "To hell with it!"

0:41:090:41:11

But don't you have work to do?

0:41:110:41:13

"But, but, but..."

0:41:130:41:16

Butts are for goats, my love.

0:41:160:41:18

I'll put in extra hours tomorrow.

0:41:210:41:24

A gift of a pear for milady.

0:41:260:41:29

Thank you.

0:41:300:41:31

Now, what are we playing?

0:41:330:41:35

-The hen got out and we've been trying to catch her.

-Ah.

0:41:350:41:38

That's no hen.

0:41:440:41:46

That's Aunt Ellie, your mother's horrendiferous sister!

0:41:480:41:52

That's a made-up word.

0:41:520:41:54

Yes, it is.

0:41:540:41:55

-Hurry, catch her before she flies away on the...

-West wind!

0:41:550:41:58

West wind.

0:41:580:42:00

-Quick, get Aunt Ellie!

-Ellie!

0:42:000:42:02

Come on, Biddy!

0:42:020:42:03

That way.

0:42:110:42:13

Oh, she's a foul fowl!

0:42:130:42:15

Get Aunt Ellie!

0:42:150:42:18

Come on.

0:42:180:42:19

Grab her!

0:42:220:42:24

Hurry, Sergeant Ginty! Fell the beast!

0:42:240:42:26

Darling, it's just that I'm a little scared.

0:42:280:42:30

Meg, sweet, I had a throat scratch.

0:42:300:42:34

But the bank is getting you down again.

0:42:350:42:38

-Perhaps my sister can help.

-No. God, no.

0:42:390:42:42

I can endure. I will endure.

0:42:450:42:50

For the girls. Just, please...

0:42:500:42:54

Oh, God, not Ellie.

0:42:540:42:56

She's a foul fowl.

0:43:120:43:15

-It's gotta be like a slogan.

-Her prescription for life.

0:43:180:43:21

-"An apple a day?"

-"A stitch in time."

0:43:210:43:24

"Time and tide wait for no man."

0:43:240:43:26

Sugar.

0:43:310:43:33

"Sugar"? Yeah?

0:43:330:43:34

Jeff had vaccination day at school yesterday.

0:43:340:43:36

-Ouch.

-No ouch.

-No ouch?

-Sugar.

0:43:360:43:39

They put it in a cube.

0:43:390:43:41

-Medicine in sugar?

-"Cube" is an odd word.

0:43:410:43:44

"Spoonful."

0:43:460:43:47

You need sugar? We have sugar.

0:43:490:43:51

Well, morning! May I walk with you?

0:43:520:43:56

I'm sure there aren't any laws in your country against it.

0:43:560:43:58

# A robin feathering his nest

0:43:580:44:01

# Has very little time to rest... #

0:44:010:44:04

Go back to the chorus.

0:44:040:44:05

# For a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down

0:44:070:44:13

# The medicine... #

0:44:130:44:15

It's not... It's missing...

0:44:150:44:17

Wait.

0:44:170:44:20

-She always does the unexpected.

-Mm-hm.

0:44:200:44:23

She goes up the banisters.

0:44:230:44:25

BOTH: Go up!

0:44:250:44:27

# Just a spoonful of sugar

0:44:270:44:31

# Helps the medicine go down... #

0:44:310:44:33

That's it, that's it, that's it.

0:44:330:44:35

COUGHING

0:44:350:44:36

Man is in the forest. I want you to play that for him.

0:44:360:44:39

Walt, hold on. I want you to hear this.

0:44:390:44:41

-It's just the chorus.

-Tell us what you think.

0:44:420:44:45

# He knows... #

0:44:460:44:47

THEY BOTH HARMONISE

0:44:470:44:51

# For a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down

0:44:510:44:57

# The medicine go down Medicine go down

0:44:570:45:01

# Just a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down... #

0:45:010:45:06

THEY HARMONISE

0:45:060:45:10

We'll work out the rest of the lyrics.

0:45:100:45:11

-You see how it goes up on the word "down"?

-On "down", it goes up.

0:45:110:45:14

-It's ironic.

-Oh, forget "ironic". It's iconic.

0:45:140:45:17

I won't be able to stop singing that for weeks.

0:45:170:45:19

HE HUMS HAPPILY

0:45:190:45:21

Well, it seems enormously patronising to me.

0:45:210:45:24

Just the sort of annoying tune you'd have playing

0:45:240:45:26

in your themed park, I dare say.

0:45:260:45:28

All giddy and carefree, encouraging children to face the world unarmed.

0:45:280:45:31

All they need is a spoon and some sugar

0:45:310:45:33

and a brain full of fluff and they're equipped with life's tools.

0:45:330:45:37

Wonderful(!)

0:45:370:45:38

What's your point, Pam?

0:45:390:45:41

"Mrs Travers", please.

0:45:410:45:42

My point is that, unlike yourself,

0:45:420:45:44

Mary Poppins is the very enemy of whimsy and sentiment.

0:45:440:45:47

She's truthful. She doesn't sugar-coat the darkness in the world

0:45:470:45:51

that these children will eventually, inevitably come to know.

0:45:510:45:54

She prepares them for it. She deals in honesty.

0:45:540:45:56

One must clean one's room.

0:45:560:45:58

It won't magically do it by itself.

0:45:580:46:00

This entire script is flim-flam. Hmm?

0:46:000:46:03

Where is its heart? Where is its reality?

0:46:030:46:06

Where...is the gravitas?

0:46:060:46:09

No weight, Mr Disney.

0:46:190:46:21

See?

0:46:240:46:25

"No whimsy or sentiment," says the woman

0:46:260:46:29

who sent a flying nanny with a talking umbrella

0:46:290:46:32

to save the children.

0:46:320:46:33

You think Mary Poppins has come to save the children, Mr Disney?

0:46:330:46:37

Oh, dear.

0:46:410:46:43

Mr Belhatchett.

0:46:510:46:52

Good afternoon.

0:46:520:46:53

After you, my dear.

0:46:550:46:57

Allow me.

0:46:580:47:00

INDISTINCT SHOUTING

0:47:000:47:03

..or if I'm five minutes late opening his stupid bank!

0:47:030:47:06

Well, then, he'll take to me

0:47:060:47:08

with the business end of his beautiful hatchet!

0:47:080:47:10

There! Whack!

0:47:100:47:11

"Take that for not dropping your bairns on schedule!"

0:47:110:47:14

Whack! "Go on, then! Take that! Take that!"

0:47:140:47:18

-Mr Belhatchett...

-I want you gone.

0:47:260:47:28

Ginty.

0:47:330:47:35

Sweet thing, what are you doing here?

0:47:370:47:40

You said today was ice-cream day.

0:47:410:47:44

Ice-cream day. Yes, I did.

0:47:440:47:47

Of course, of course.

0:47:470:47:49

What kind of a father am I? Come here.

0:47:500:47:53

Are you fired again?

0:47:560:47:58

Yes. It does seem that...

0:48:000:48:03

No, sweetheart. No.

0:48:030:48:05

He's not.

0:48:060:48:08

HE SIGHS

0:48:080:48:09

Darling, wait inside for a second.

0:48:110:48:14

Mr Belhatchett...

0:48:150:48:16

If you can't straighten up for your own sake,

0:48:160:48:19

do it for your daughter.

0:48:190:48:21

Irresponsible.

0:48:210:48:23

We share a Celtic soul, you and I.

0:48:460:48:49

This world,

0:48:500:48:53

it's just an illusion, Ginty, old girl.

0:48:530:48:55

As long as we hold that thought dear, they can't break us.

0:48:570:49:00

They can't make us endure their reality.

0:49:000:49:04

Bleak and bloody as it is.

0:49:040:49:07

Money. Money, money.

0:49:100:49:14

Don't you buy into it, Ginty.

0:49:160:49:18

It'll bite you on the bot.

0:49:200:49:22

I loathe this place, Mr Russell.

0:49:360:49:39

It's bringing up these...

0:49:390:49:42

Well, it's so hot and stuffy.

0:49:420:49:45

I feel as if I'm being attacked.

0:49:450:49:48

There's these odd dreams,

0:49:480:49:50

as if my subconscious were after me,

0:49:500:49:52

punishing me for entertaining the idea

0:49:520:49:56

that I might hand her over.

0:49:560:49:59

I'm at war with myself, Mr Russell.

0:50:000:50:03

The script's ghastly.

0:50:050:50:07

Empty pap, just as I expected.

0:50:070:50:11

Yes. A few more days, then I'll decide.

0:50:120:50:17

Oh.

0:50:310:50:32

Serves me right.

0:50:420:50:45

Money, money, money.

0:50:450:50:47

It bit me on the bot.

0:50:470:50:49

# Feed the birds Tuppence a bag

0:51:150:51:21

# Tuppence, tuppence Tuppence a bag

0:51:210:51:28

# Feed the birds That's what she cries

0:51:280:51:34

# While overhead her birds fill the skies

0:51:340:51:40

# All around the cathedral The saints and apostles

0:51:400:51:46

# Look down as she sells her wares

0:51:460:51:52

# Although you can't see it You know they are smiling

0:51:520:51:58

# Each time someone shows that he cares

0:51:580:52:05

# Though her words are simple and few

0:52:060:52:12

# Listen, listen She's calling to you

0:52:120:52:18

# Feed the birds Tuppence a bag

0:52:180:52:26

# Tuppence

0:52:260:52:28

# Tuppence

0:52:290:52:31

# Tuppence a bag. #

0:52:330:52:39

That'll work.

0:52:420:52:44

But she's going to say no, isn't she?

0:52:460:52:49

The woman's a conundrum.

0:52:510:52:53

# My world was calm

0:53:080:53:10

# Well ordered, exemplary... #

0:53:100:53:14

"Exemplary."

0:53:140:53:15

# Then came this person With chaos in her wake

0:53:150:53:21

# And now my life's ambitions go

0:53:230:53:28

# With one fell blow

0:53:280:53:32

# It's quite a bitter pill to take... #

0:53:320:53:40

Inspired by someone we know?

0:53:400:53:42

You'd have to ask Bob.

0:53:420:53:45

-She might surprise us all.

-No, no, no, she won't.

0:53:460:53:49

-You don't know that.

-No, I do. I do know it.

0:53:490:53:53

I know it only too well.

0:53:530:53:56

I fought this battle from her side.

0:53:560:53:58

Pat Powers.

0:53:580:54:01

Oh, he wanted the mouse,

0:54:010:54:02

and I didn't have a bean in my pocket back then.

0:54:020:54:05

He was this big, terrifying New York producer,

0:54:050:54:08

I was just a kid from Missouri with a sketch of Mickey.

0:54:080:54:11

It would've killed me to give him up.

0:54:130:54:15

Honest to God, would've killed me.

0:54:150:54:18

That mouse is family.

0:54:190:54:22

Go home.

0:54:290:54:31

FATHER: 'This world,

0:54:480:54:51

'it's just an illusion, Ginty old girl.'

0:54:510:54:53

Ah, the Countess Mary Sparklestick.

0:55:050:55:09

Pray, tell me, what are you concentrating so hard on?

0:55:090:55:13

I'm laying eggs.

0:55:130:55:14

Really? Fabulous.

0:55:140:55:17

-Today, I'm a hen.

-Indeed.

0:55:210:55:23

Helen Goff, will you lay the table for supper, please?

0:55:230:55:26

I'm not Helen.

0:55:260:55:27

She can't possibly lay the table, she's busy laying eggs.

0:55:270:55:30

-Helen, will you lay the table for supper, please?

-She's laying!

0:55:310:55:34

Sorry.

-Ssh!

0:55:410:55:44

-Ginty.

0:55:440:55:46

Don't you ever stop dreaming, Ginty, my love.

0:55:480:55:52

You can be anyone you want to be.

0:55:520:55:54

-Anyone.

-I want to be just like you.

0:55:540:55:58

Don't.

Mrs Travers.

0:57:090:57:10

We were saying we'd like to play you the song in the bank.

0:57:110:57:14

Would that be good?

0:57:140:57:15

He is, indeed. On behalf of the bank.

-Maybe he'll pin one on me for the maypole.

-He might.

0:58:130:58:17

Where is Father?

0:58:170:58:19

I think he's practising his speech somewhere.

-He IS the manager, sir.

-He looks terrible.

Good afternoon, distinguished guests,

our biggest supporter, Mr Randolph Belhatchett,

and his lovely wife.

1:00:141:00:17

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls.

1:00:171:00:20

I'm honoured to be here on behalf of

the Belhatchett Bank of Australia.

Shortly, it will, uh...

1:00:251:00:27

it will be my very pleasant duty

1:00:291:00:32

But, we, uh... But before I begin,

1:00:321:00:37

allow me a very few words to our very youngest citizens

1:00:371:00:40

about the, uh... About the, uh,

1:00:401:00:43

the role of the bank in our community.

Ah!

1:01:591:02:00

Oh, yeah.

1:02:001:02:02

It's a marvellous thing to encourage our children to open bank accounts.

1:02:021:02:08

Marvellous thing!

1:02:221:02:24

Come, Ginty.

1:02:271:02:28

Ginty has an account, and that's good!

1:02:371:02:43

Well, give her a drink!

I need to relieve myself.

1:03:051:03:06

Give us your shoulder, Ginty, will you?

Why did you have to make him so cruel? He was not a monster!

1:03:411:03:46

Who are we talking about? I'm confused.

1:03:461:03:48

You all have children, yes?

1:03:481:03:49

Yes, yes.

1:03:491:03:50

And do those children make letters for you?

1:03:501:03:52

Do they write letters? Do they make you drawings?

1:03:521:03:55

And would you tear up those gifts in front of them?

1:03:551:03:58

It's a dreadful thing to do. I don't understand.

1:03:581:04:01

Why must Father tear up the advertisement

1:04:011:04:04

his children have made, and throw it in the fireplace?

1:04:041:04:07

Why won't he mend their kite?

1:04:071:04:08

Why have you made him so unspeakably awful?

1:04:081:04:11

In glorious Technicolor, for all the world to see?

1:04:111:04:16

If you claim to make them live, why can't he...

1:04:161:04:20

they...live well?

1:04:201:04:23

I can't bear it. Please, don't.

1:04:241:04:27

Please, don't. I feel like I let him down again.

1:04:271:04:32

Mrs Travers?

1:04:331:04:35

I don't suppose you can give me any more for the pain?

1:04:381:04:42

When will enough be enough, Travers?

1:04:481:04:50

Hmm?

1:04:501:04:52

I brought you something, Father.

1:04:591:05:01

Be a darling, Ginty, my old pal. Come here.

1:05:031:05:07

(Come here. Come close.)

1:05:091:05:10

I'm sick.

1:05:131:05:14

You'll help Father out, won't you?

1:05:141:05:16

In my washroom, there's a bottle of medicine that Father needs.

1:05:201:05:25

Mother took it away.

1:05:251:05:27

Oh, goddamn it!

1:05:271:05:28

I wrote you a poem, Father.

1:05:311:05:33

It won first place at school.

1:05:361:05:39

Shall I read it to you, Father?

1:05:411:05:44

HE SNATCHES PAPER

1:05:501:05:52

HE RUSTLES PAGE

1:05:521:05:55

HE WHIMPERS QUIETLY

1:05:581:06:01

It's hardly Yeats, is it?

1:06:071:06:09

Mrs?

1:07:241:07:26

I, uh... I brought you a tea.

1:07:271:07:30

It's blasphemy to drink tea from a paper cup.

1:07:301:07:33

Oh. Uh...

1:07:331:07:35

Here.

1:07:351:07:37

Is everything OK, Mrs?

1:07:401:07:42

Would you like me to drive you home?

1:07:431:07:46

All the way to England? Yes, please.

1:07:461:07:49

You, uh... You got family back there, Mrs?

1:07:511:07:53

You're an impertinent man, you know?

1:07:531:07:55

You ask an awful lot of questions that have absolutely no relevance

1:07:551:07:58

to your being able to carry out your duties.

1:07:581:08:00

HE LAUGHS

1:08:001:08:02

I know. Yeah, I do, do that, yes.

1:08:021:08:04

And you have no barometer.

1:08:041:08:06

Let's just say I haven't family

1:08:081:08:11

who would notice whether I were halfway across the world

1:08:111:08:13

or sitting in my living room.

1:08:131:08:16

Make a furrow. There.

1:08:181:08:21

That's a good stick for digging.

1:08:211:08:23

-A furrow?

-Yes.

1:08:231:08:25

All right.

1:08:251:08:26

I got a kid.

1:08:331:08:35

Most people do.

1:08:351:08:37

Jane.

1:08:371:08:39

Yeah.

1:08:391:08:41

What a terrific kid.

1:08:411:08:43

Beautiful little girl.

1:08:431:08:47

She's got a lot of problems, though.

1:08:471:08:50

She's handicapped, you know?

1:08:501:08:52

She's in a wheelchair.

1:08:551:08:57

See, and that's why I concern myself with the weather so much.

1:08:581:09:02

Sunny day, she can sit outside in the garden.

1:09:021:09:06

Rainy day, I gotta leave her cooped up inside.

1:09:071:09:10

I worry about the future...

1:09:141:09:16

but you can't do that.

1:09:161:09:19

Only today.

1:09:201:09:21

Mmm.

1:09:231:09:24

Yeah.

1:09:241:09:26

Now, look.

1:09:281:09:29

It's a bandstand.

1:09:291:09:31

Ah!

1:09:311:09:32

Ah! A river!

1:09:341:09:36

-Lake.

-Lake.

1:09:361:09:38

Hmm.

1:09:381:09:40

Hey, hey, hey, I sure would like to take her there.

1:09:401:09:43

Wouldn't that be nice?

1:09:431:09:45

Mother?

1:09:571:09:58

I know you gave it to him.

1:10:021:10:04

Take care of your sisters.

1:10:091:10:11

What?

1:10:121:10:13

I know you love your father more.

1:10:131:10:15

But one day, you will understand.

1:10:191:10:23

Hmm.

-I'm sorry!

Oh, my God.

1:12:261:12:28

I'm sorry.

1:12:281:12:30

1:12:301:12:32

Yes, that will be very good.

'I understand things didn't go so well today.

1:13:021:13:04

'Something about Mr Banks?'

1:13:041:13:06

They went as well as they've gone on every other day that I've been here.

1:13:061:13:09

I don't recall any special phone calls from you

1:13:091:13:11

on any of those other evenings.

1:13:111:13:13

Pam, what's this all about?

1:13:131:13:16

I mean, really?

1:13:161:13:17

I'm wondering what I have to do to make you happy.

1:13:171:13:20

Oh.

1:13:201:13:22

'And you're wondering that, too, aren't you?'

1:13:221:13:25

You know, you've never been to Disneyland,

1:13:251:13:29

'and that's the happiest place on Earth.'

1:13:291:13:31

Tommie! Cancel my morning tomorrow.

1:13:311:13:33

I'm going to take a ride with my favourite author.

1:13:331:13:35

No, no, no, please, Mr Disney, I cannot begin to tell you

1:13:351:13:38

how uninterested, no, positively sickened I am

1:13:381:13:41

at the thought of visiting your dollar-printing machine.

1:13:411:13:44

Well, for crying out loud,

1:13:441:13:46

when does anybody get to go to Disneyland with Walt Disney himself?

1:15:041:15:05

I've brought every newfangled treatment available in Sydney.

1:15:071:15:10

Close your mouth, Biddy. We are not a codfish.

1:15:171:15:19

Hmm.

1:15:231:15:24

Now, I see a multitude of jobs that need to be done.

1:15:291:15:31

I've just been, um... I've been so worried.

1:15:311:15:34

Oh, stop your babbling nonsense.

1:15:341:15:37

I'm here now, and I shall fix everything.

1:15:371:15:40

I thought I made it perfectly clear that you two ought to start helping.

1:15:411:15:46

Hmm?

1:15:461:15:47

Spit-spot!

1:15:481:15:49

Oh, boy!

1:16:221:16:24

Oh, I can get that.

1:16:371:16:39

Mrs Travers, welcome to the Magic Kingdom.

1:16:391:16:43

-Is it all like this?

-Yep.

1:16:481:16:50

Isn't it wonderful?

1:16:501:16:52

-Hey.

-Do you always get everything you want, Walter?

1:16:521:16:55

-Pretty much.

-With the exception of the rights to my books, of course.

1:16:551:16:59

Well, the war ain't over yet, Pam.

1:16:591:17:01

The war ain't over yet.

1:17:011:17:03

-I love you so much.

-Oh, whoa!

-Can you sign...?

1:17:031:17:06

Sure, sure. Here you go.

1:17:061:17:08

Here you go.

1:17:091:17:11

-Pre-signed?

-Hey, you should get hers, too.

1:17:111:17:13

This woman is a bona fide genius.

1:17:131:17:15

The tour starts this way, Pam.

1:17:171:17:20

Hot dog.

1:17:201:17:23

Whoa, whoa, whoa...

1:17:231:17:24

Move along, move along. Up, up, up, up!

1:17:241:17:27

That's good. That's good.

1:17:271:17:28

Each section of the park has a high point

1:17:311:17:33

so you can get your bearings.

1:17:331:17:35

In Adventureland, there's a tree.

1:17:351:17:39

This is a fun fact, this is a titbit.

1:17:391:17:41

"Tidbit".

1:17:411:17:42

It's got three million leaves, four million flowers.

1:17:421:17:47

-Gosh.

-They said only God could make a tree.

1:17:471:17:50

MAN: Mr Disney, sir, would you mind signing this?

1:17:501:17:54

No. Do you one better. Here you go, have a great day.

1:17:541:17:56

Oh. Thank you so much.

1:17:561:17:58

-Mr Disney!

-Hey.

1:18:041:18:06

Where did she come from?

1:18:081:18:11

Who?

1:18:111:18:12

Oh, I think you know.

1:18:121:18:13

She flew in through the window one day.

1:18:131:18:17

"Flew in through the window."

1:18:171:18:19

It was just that easy, was it, Mrs Travers?

1:18:191:18:22

Do you see those spires?

1:18:241:18:26

Plated with 24-carat gold.

1:18:261:18:28

Roy was against it,

1:18:281:18:29

so I waited until he was out of town to get it done.

1:18:291:18:31

How clever.

1:18:311:18:33

Now, I know you don't want to be here,

1:18:331:18:34

so, I'm just going to take you to one ride.

1:18:341:18:37

My favourite amusement, and then I'll set you free.

1:18:371:18:39

Hello, Mr Disney!

1:18:391:18:40

Hello, folks, how are you? Enjoy the day.

1:18:401:18:43

Hey, kids.

1:18:431:18:44

Ernie.

1:18:461:18:47

-Welcome. Right this way.

-Thank you so much. Excuse me, please.

1:18:471:18:50

Mrs Travers, I would be honoured

1:18:501:18:52

if you would take a ride on Jingles, here.

1:18:521:18:55

This is Mrs Disney's favourite horse.

1:18:551:18:56

No, thank you. I'm happy to watch.

1:18:561:19:00

Now, there's no greater joy than that

1:19:001:19:02

seen through the eyes of a child,

1:19:021:19:03

and there's a little bit of a child in all of us.

1:19:031:19:05

Maybe in you, Mr Disney, but certainly not in me.

1:19:051:19:09

Get on the horse, Pamela.

1:19:091:19:11

Now, when we first met,

1:19:181:19:19

you said to me, "They're family."

1:19:191:19:22

I said what?

1:19:221:19:24

Mary Poppins, the Bankses. They're family.

1:19:241:19:27

The boys have come up with an idea for your Mr Banks.

1:19:271:19:30

I think it's going to make you happy.

1:19:301:19:31

You didn't bring me all the way out here to tell me that?

1:19:311:19:33

Oh, no, no, no.

1:19:331:19:35

I brought you all the way out here for monetary gain.

1:19:351:19:37

I had a wager with the boys. Couldn't get you on a ride.

1:19:371:19:40

I just won 20 bucks.

1:19:401:19:41

BELL RINGS

1:19:411:19:42

H'yah!

1:19:421:19:44

I see you. I see you.

1:19:561:19:58

Well begun is half done.

1:20:351:20:37

There you go.

1:20:381:20:40

Give it a whack, Biddy. Nice and hard.

1:20:411:20:44

HE COUGHS

1:20:471:20:49

Morning, Mrs Travers.

1:21:171:21:19

What horrors have you in store for my beautiful characters today?

1:21:191:21:23

You sit here.

1:21:231:21:25

All right.

1:21:271:21:29

What are you up to?

1:21:291:21:31

We were thinking about what you said,

1:21:331:21:37

and you're right.

1:21:371:21:39

Mr Banks isn't cruel. He isn't.

1:21:411:21:45

So, we have a new end for the film.

1:21:451:21:49

Oh, God, I hope you like it.

1:21:491:21:52

Michael says, "He mended it. It's wonderful."

1:22:061:22:10

"However did you manage it?"

1:22:101:22:12

He mended the kite?

1:22:121:22:14

PIANO INTRO STARTS

1:22:141:22:16

# With tuppence for paper and strings

1:22:181:22:23

# You can have your own set of wings

1:22:231:22:26

# With your feet on the ground you're a bird in flight

1:22:261:22:30

# With your fist holding tight

1:22:301:22:32

# To the string of your kite

1:22:321:22:35

ALL: # Oh, oh, oh!

1:22:351:22:37

# Let's go fly a kite

1:22:371:22:41

# Up to the highest height

1:22:411:22:44

# Let's go fly a kite

1:22:441:22:47

# And send it soaring

1:22:471:22:51

# Up through the atmosphere

1:22:511:22:54

# Up where the air is clear

1:22:541:22:58

# Oh, let's go fly a kite... #

1:22:581:23:03

Then, Mrs Banks runs through her house.

1:23:031:23:06

She gets the suffragette ribbon, and says...

1:23:061:23:09

"A proper kite deserves a proper tail, don't you think?"

1:23:091:23:13

# Oh, oh, oh!

1:23:131:23:15

# Let's go fly a kite

1:23:151:23:19

# Up to the highest height

1:23:191:23:22

# Let's go fly a kite

1:23:221:23:25

# And send it soaring

1:23:251:23:29

# Up through the atmosphere

1:23:291:23:33

# Up where the air is clear

1:23:331:23:36

# Oh, let's go fly a kite

1:23:361:23:41

# When you send it flying up there

1:23:431:23:46

# All at once You're lighter than air

1:23:461:23:50

# You can dance on the breeze

1:23:501:23:51

# Over houses and trees

1:23:511:23:53

# With your fist holding tight

1:23:531:23:55

# To the string of your kite... #

1:23:551:23:58

Mr Disney! Walt!

1:24:011:24:03

I'm sorry to interrupt. It's just she's...she's dancing.

1:24:031:24:06

Mrs Travers. She's dancing with Don.

1:24:071:24:10

# Oh, oh, oh!

1:24:101:24:13

# Let's go fly a kite

1:24:131:24:16

# Up to the highest height

1:24:161:24:20

# Let's go fly a kite

1:24:201:24:23

# And send it soaring

1:24:231:24:27

# Up through the atmosphere

1:24:271:24:30

# Up where the air is clear

1:24:301:24:34

# Oh, let's go fly a kite. #

1:24:341:24:40

SHE LAUGHS

1:24:401:24:42

He... He fixes the kite.

1:24:421:24:45

Oh, I love it.

1:24:451:24:46

Although, the proper English would be, "Let us go and fly a kite."

1:24:481:24:52

# Let us go and fly a kite... #

1:24:521:24:55

I might be willing to overlook that.

1:24:551:24:57

All right.

1:24:571:25:00

Very good.

1:25:001:25:01

(Look at you.)

1:25:111:25:13

I rewrote the poem, Father.

1:25:151:25:18

The aunt gave me tuppence.

1:25:271:25:29

Shall I buy you something, Father?

1:25:301:25:33

(Pears.)

1:25:381:25:40

(Pears.)

1:25:461:25:48

Father.

1:25:481:25:50

Tuppence for pears, pears, pears, pears...

1:25:521:25:55

Tuppence for pears, pears, pears, pears...

1:25:551:25:58

You're quite right, you know? It is beautiful.

1:26:091:26:11

Exquisite.

1:26:111:26:12

It's always new.

1:26:141:26:16

-So, Jolly Holiday is in?

-Mmm. By all means.

1:26:231:26:26

Wonderful.

1:26:261:26:27

I do have a question about it, actually.

1:26:271:26:29

How in the world does Mr Disney propose

1:26:291:26:31

to train all the penguins to dance?

1:26:311:26:34

I've heard about his implausibly-leaved trees.

1:26:341:26:37

So, I presume he does have some insane penguin-wrangling scheme.

1:26:371:26:39

But it does seem a little far-fetched, even for him.

1:26:391:26:41

Can you train a penguin to dance?

1:26:411:26:45

No, I don't think you can train...

1:26:451:26:49

-They're animated.

-Dick...

1:26:491:26:50

-They're what?

-Cartoons.

-Dick!

1:26:531:26:55

What?

1:27:001:27:01

Are we getting real penguins?

1:27:061:27:08

Yes, two o'clock, Tuesday. Good afternoon, Mrs Travers.

1:27:081:27:13

-I'm here to see Mr Disney.

-Oh, please, have a...

1:27:131:27:16

-Mrs Travers, please!

-Disney!

1:27:161:27:18

Mrs Travers?

1:27:201:27:22

Mrs Travers!

1:27:231:27:24

I'm terribly sorry, Walt.

1:27:251:27:27

It's all right, Tommie. Just close the door.

1:27:271:27:29

I never let anyone see me smoking.

1:27:291:27:31

I hate to encourage bad habits.

1:27:311:27:34

Please, sit down.

1:27:341:27:35

I shall not sit in the seat of a trickster, a fraudster, a sneak!

1:27:351:27:39

-Pamela!

-"Mrs Travers", please!

1:27:391:27:42

Mrs Travers, what has you so upset now?

1:27:421:27:45

Penguins.

1:27:451:27:47

Penguins have very much upset me, Mr Disney.

1:27:471:27:50

Animated dancing penguins.

1:27:501:27:51

Now, you...you have seduced me with the music, Mr Disney. Yes, you have.

1:27:511:27:55

Those Sherman boys have quite turned my head.

1:27:551:27:57

But I shall not be moved upon the matter of cartoons, sir.

1:27:571:28:01

Not one inch!

1:28:011:28:03

-It is a sequence.

-You promised me.

1:28:031:28:06

You promised me that this film would not be an animation!

1:28:061:28:10

And it isn't.

1:28:101:28:12

So, they're real penguins?

1:28:141:28:15

No. No, they are animated.

1:28:151:28:18

But the actors, you see, the actors are very, very much real.

1:28:181:28:22

Foolish old woman.

1:28:221:28:24

Have a good day, Mr Disney.

1:28:251:28:28

Pamela.

1:28:321:28:34

Pam!

1:28:341:28:35

Oh, Dolly, would you be so kind as to ring my driver,

1:28:411:28:43

-and ask him to collect me?

-Yes, ma'am.

1:28:431:28:46

Thank you.

1:28:461:28:48

Here we are, Mrs.

1:29:001:29:03

-Thank you.

-Yeah.

1:29:031:29:04

It's been a real pleasure driving you, Mrs.

1:29:141:29:17

No-one likes a fibber.

1:29:181:29:19

Oh, no, no. I really have enjoyed it.

1:29:191:29:23

I didn't know who you were at first.

1:29:261:29:28

And then, guess what.

1:29:281:29:29

You found out?

1:29:291:29:31

I was telling my daughter all about my day,

1:29:311:29:34

and how I'm driving this nice writer lady, Mrs Travers,

1:29:341:29:37

for Mr Disney, and, uh...

1:29:371:29:40

And?

1:29:411:29:43

And...

1:29:431:29:44

And she made me go to her bedroom,

1:29:461:29:50

and bring her this.

1:29:501:29:52

I can't stop reading it, you know.

1:29:531:29:55

I'm very slow, mind you, so...

1:29:551:29:58

Would you like me to sign it?

1:29:581:30:00

Would you?

1:30:001:30:02

I'd be honoured.

1:30:021:30:03

Uh...

1:30:071:30:09

Let me see, now. "To Jane

1:30:131:30:16

"and her dearest father..."

1:30:161:30:21

I've just this instant realised I don't know your name.

1:30:231:30:25

Ralph.

1:30:251:30:27

-Pamela.

-Pamela.

1:30:271:30:30

You're the only American I've ever liked, Ralph.

1:30:341:30:37

Oh... Well, may I ask why?

1:30:371:30:39

No. Now, take this.

1:30:391:30:43

"Albert Einstein, Van Gogh, Roosevelt.

1:30:431:30:48

"Frida K-ai-hlo."

1:30:481:30:50

-"K-a-hlo."

-Kahlo.

1:30:501:30:51

What is this?

1:30:521:30:53

They all had difficulties.

1:30:531:30:55

Jane can do anything that anyone else can do.

1:30:551:30:59

Do you understand?

1:30:591:31:01

Oh.

1:31:051:31:07

I almost forgot, turn it around.

1:31:071:31:09

"Walt Disney."

1:31:101:31:11

Hyperactive behaviour and deficiencies in concentration.

1:31:111:31:15

It explains everything.

1:31:151:31:17

Thank you, Mrs.

1:31:201:31:22

She acted like an angry person a lot of the time.

1:31:261:31:29

Mm-hm.

1:31:291:31:30

So, she's come and gone, huh?

1:31:301:31:33

Yeah, her flight left ten minutes ago.

1:31:331:31:35

Beverly Hills Hotel, private limousine.

1:31:351:31:38

First-class plane ticket back to England for...

1:31:381:31:41

Wait. "Goff"?

1:31:411:31:44

Who is... Who is Helen Goff?

1:31:441:31:46

That's her. That's her real name.

1:31:461:31:48

She acts so hoity-toity British, and she's really an Aussie.

1:31:481:31:52

Then who is Travers?

1:31:521:31:55

I've been talking to the wrong person?

1:31:571:32:00

He's gone.

1:32:201:32:21

No, no, no. You mustn't.

1:32:261:32:27

Let her go, Margaret.

1:32:291:32:30

I dropped the pears.

1:33:071:33:09

I'm sorry, Daddy.

1:33:101:33:13

Helen, dear girl...

1:33:191:33:21

You promised you would fix everything.

1:33:211:33:24

Hello, house.

1:33:591:34:01

KNOCK ON DOOR

1:34:121:34:16

SHE GASPS

1:34:161:34:17

Oh, dear God!

1:34:341:34:36

It was one heck of a job getting a seat

1:34:361:34:39

on the very next flight, let me tell you.

1:34:391:34:41

Mrs Travers,

1:34:441:34:46

I could sure use a nice pot of English tea about now.

1:34:461:34:49

Here we are.

1:34:571:34:59

Allow me.

1:35:001:35:02

Milk in first, remember?

1:35:031:35:05

Yeah, I remember.

1:35:051:35:07

And a spoonful of sugar?

1:35:081:35:11

No, I think I'll have whisky.

1:35:111:35:12

Oh.

1:35:121:35:14

Ooh.

1:35:161:35:17

That's OK.

1:35:191:35:20

Well, when in Rome...

1:35:211:35:24

(Thank you.)

1:35:301:35:31

You've come to change my mind, haven't you?

1:35:311:35:34

To beat me into submission.

1:35:341:35:36

No. No.

1:35:361:35:37

I've come because you misjudge me.

1:35:371:35:42

How do I misjudge you?

1:35:451:35:47

You look at me and you see some kind of Hollywood King Midas.

1:35:471:35:51

You think I've built an empire, and I want your Mary Poppins

1:35:511:35:54

as just another brick in my kingdom.

1:35:541:35:57

And don't you?

1:35:571:35:59

Now, if that was all it was, would I have suckered up

1:35:591:36:03

to a cranky, stubborn dame like you for 20 years?

1:36:031:36:06

No, I would have saved myself an ulcer.

1:36:061:36:09

No... You, uh...

1:36:091:36:10

You expected me to disappoint you, and so you made sure I did.

1:36:101:36:14

Well, I think life disappoints you, Mrs Travers.

1:36:171:36:20

I think it's done that a lot,

1:36:201:36:22

and I think Mary Poppins is the only person in your life who hasn't.

1:36:221:36:25

Mary Poppins isn't real.

1:36:261:36:29

That's not true. No, no, no.

1:36:291:36:30

She's as real as can be to my daughters.

1:36:301:36:33

And to thousands of other kids. Adults, too.

1:36:331:36:36

She's been there as a night-time comfort

1:36:361:36:38

to a heck of a lot of people.

1:36:381:36:41

Well, where is she when I need her, hmm?

1:36:411:36:43

I open the door to Mary Poppins,

1:36:431:36:45

and who should be standing there, but Walt Disney?

1:36:451:36:49

Mrs Travers, I'm sorry.

1:36:511:36:53

I'd hoped this would have been a magical experience,

1:36:531:36:58

for you and for all of us, but I've let you down.

1:36:581:37:01

And, in doing so,

1:37:011:37:02

I've broken a 20-year-old promise I made to my daughters.

1:37:021:37:05

I've been racking my brain, trying to figure out why

1:37:051:37:09

this has been so hard for you and I.

1:37:091:37:13

And, well...

1:37:141:37:16

You see, I have my own Mr Banks.

1:37:181:37:23

Mine had a moustache.

1:37:241:37:26

So, not true that Disney created man in his own image?

1:37:261:37:31

No, no.

1:37:311:37:33

But it is true that you created yourself in someone else's, yes?

1:37:331:37:37

Have you ever been to Kansas City, Mrs Travers?

1:37:391:37:41

Do you know Missouri at all?

1:37:411:37:43

I can't say I do.

1:37:431:37:45

Well, it's mighty cold there in the winters. Bitter cold.

1:37:451:37:49

And my dad, Elias Disney,

1:37:491:37:51

he owned a newspaper delivery route there.

1:37:511:37:53

A thousand papers, twice daily.

1:37:531:37:55

A morning and an evening edition.

1:37:551:37:58

And Dad was a tough businessman.

1:37:581:38:00

He was a "save a penny anyway you can" type of fella.

1:38:001:38:03

So he wouldn't employ delivery boys.

1:38:031:38:06

No, no, no. He used me and my big brother Roy.

1:38:061:38:10

I was, uh... I was eight back then.

1:38:101:38:14

Just eight years old.

1:38:141:38:16

And, like I said, winters are harsh.

1:38:161:38:20

And old Elias, well, he didn't believe in new shoes,

1:38:201:38:22

until the old ones were worn through.

1:38:221:38:25

Honestly, Mrs Travers,

1:38:251:38:27

the snowdrifts, sometimes they were up over my head.

1:38:271:38:29

And we'd push through that snow like it was molasses.

1:38:291:38:32

The cold and wet seeping through our clothes and the shoes.

1:38:331:38:38

Skin peeling from our faces.

1:38:381:38:40

Sometimes I'd find myself sunk down in that snow,

1:38:401:38:44

just waking up,

1:38:441:38:45

because I must have passed out or something, I don't know.

1:38:451:38:47

And then it was time for school, and I was too cold or wet

1:38:471:38:51

to figure out equations and things.

1:38:511:38:54

And then it was right back out in the snow again

1:38:541:38:56

to get home just before dark.

1:38:561:38:59

Mother would feed us dinner.

1:38:591:39:02

And then it was time to go right back out

1:39:021:39:04

and do it again for the evening edition.

1:39:041:39:06

"You best be quick there, Walt.

1:39:091:39:10

"You better get those newspapers up

1:39:101:39:12

"on that porch and under that storm door.

1:39:121:39:15

"Poppa's going to lose his temper again

1:39:151:39:16

"and show you the buckle end of his belt, boy."

1:39:161:39:19

I don't... I don't tell you this to make you sad, Mrs Travers.

1:39:251:39:28

I don't. I love my life. I think it's a miracle.

1:39:281:39:31

And I loved my dad. He was a... He was a wonderful man.

1:39:311:39:35

But rare is the day

1:39:351:39:37

when I don't think about that eight-year-old boy

1:39:371:39:41

delivering newspapers in the snow,

1:39:411:39:44

and old Elias Disney with that strap in his fist.

1:39:441:39:48

And I am just so tired.

1:39:481:39:50

Mrs Travers,

1:39:511:39:52

I'm tired of remembering it that way.

1:39:521:39:57

Aren't you tired, too, Mrs Travers?

1:39:571:40:01

Now we all have our sad tales,

1:40:011:40:03

but don't you want to finish the story?

1:40:031:40:07

Let it all go and have a life that isn't dictated by the past?

1:40:071:40:11

It's not the children she comes to save.

1:40:151:40:19

It's their father.

1:40:191:40:20

It's your father.

1:40:231:40:25

Travers Goff.

1:40:261:40:28

I don't know what you think you know about me, Walter...

1:40:341:40:37

You must have loved and admired him a lot to take his name.

1:40:371:40:41

-I...

-It's him this is all about, isn't it?

1:40:411:40:44

All of it, everything.

1:40:441:40:46

Forgiveness, Mrs Travers.

1:40:491:40:52

It's what I learned from your books.

1:40:521:40:54

I don't have to forgive my father. He was a wonderful man.

1:40:541:40:57

No, no.

1:40:571:40:59

You need to forgive Helen Goff.

1:40:591:41:01

Life is a harsh sentence to lay down for yourself.

1:41:031:41:07

Give her to me,

1:41:111:41:13

Mrs Travers. Trust me with your precious Mary Poppins.

1:41:131:41:18

I won't disappoint you.

1:41:191:41:21

I swear, every time a person walks into a movie house,

1:41:211:41:24

from Leicester Square to Kansas City,

1:41:241:41:27

they will see George Banks being saved.

1:41:271:41:30

They will love him and his kids.

1:41:301:41:33

They will weep for his cares.

1:41:331:41:36

They will wring their hands when he loses his job.

1:41:361:41:39

And when he flies that kite...

1:41:401:41:43

Oh, Mrs Travers, they will rejoice.

1:41:451:41:47

They will sing.

1:41:481:41:50

In movie houses all over the world,

1:41:501:41:52

in the eyes and hearts of my kids and other kids,

1:41:521:41:54

and mothers and fathers for generations to come,

1:41:541:41:57

George Banks will be honoured.

1:41:571:42:00

George Banks will be redeemed.

1:42:011:42:04

George Banks and all he stands for will be saved.

1:42:041:42:07

Now, maybe not in life, but in imagination.

1:42:081:42:13

Because that's what we storytellers do.

1:42:131:42:16

We restore order with imagination.

1:42:161:42:18

We instil hope again and again and again.

1:42:181:42:22

So, trust me, Mrs Travers.

1:42:251:42:28

Let me prove it to you.

1:42:281:42:29

I give you my word.

1:42:301:42:33

Enough.

1:42:491:42:50

Just make those two changes

1:43:121:43:13

and I'm sure everything will be just fine. Just fine.

1:43:131:43:17

-Walt, could I get your approval on that, please?

-What is it?

1:43:171:43:19

Invitation list to the premiere.

1:43:191:43:21

Yeah? Is this everyone?

1:43:211:43:23

It's not everyone.

1:43:231:43:24

Now, there will be a premiere in London.

1:43:281:43:30

That will be more convenient for her.

1:43:301:43:32

Tommie, this wasn't an easy decision for me,

1:43:321:43:35

but you know what she's like.

1:43:351:43:37

We got press, interviews, cameras. I need to protect the picture.

1:43:371:43:41

OK.

1:43:431:43:45

-DOORBELL RINGS

-Ah.

1:43:491:43:52

I should say so, too.

1:43:521:43:54

WOMAN: Mrs Travers!

1:43:551:43:57

DOORBELL RINGS AGAIN Mrs Travers!

1:44:011:44:04

Will you stop screeching like an alley cat!

1:44:041:44:06

And answer the door!

1:44:061:44:09

I'm very pleased to hear that, Pamela.

1:44:091:44:11

I should think you will have a draft fairly soon.

1:44:111:44:14

Polly, where's that tea?

1:44:141:44:15

It's coming along marvellously.

1:44:151:44:17

Ah, ah, ah. No peeking.

1:44:171:44:19

Aren't you going to pour it for us?

1:44:211:44:23

You're perfectly capable of pouring it yourself.

1:44:231:44:26

She's quite the worst maid I've ever had.

1:44:281:44:30

-So why do you keep her?

-I don't know. She reminds me of me.

1:44:301:44:34

HE LAUGHS

1:44:341:44:35

Do you have a title?

1:44:351:44:36

Mary Poppins in the Kitchen.

1:44:361:44:39

Wonderful.

1:44:391:44:40

So, should we start talking about the film rights?

1:44:401:44:44

-Never again.

-OK.

1:44:441:44:47

Now, tell me, have you got your tiara for the premiere?

1:44:481:44:51

Oh, I'm not going to that.

1:44:511:44:53

Why not?

1:44:531:44:54

Hollywood premieres aren't for old trout like me.

1:44:541:44:57

Anyway, it's not convenient.

1:44:571:45:01

He hasn't invited you, has he?

1:45:011:45:03

Mary Poppins wouldn't stand for that.

1:45:061:45:09

Can I help you?

1:45:141:45:16

-I'm perfectly capable, thank you.

-As I recall.

1:45:161:45:19

Sweet of you.

1:45:211:45:22

-Walt... Um...

-Hello, Dolly!

1:45:271:45:29

-Walt...

-Tommie, we're going to have to move that meeting with GE.

1:45:291:45:34

What?

1:45:351:45:37

Mrs Travers!

1:45:441:45:45

Me again!

1:45:451:45:47

How wonderful to see you.

1:45:471:45:49

I'm here for my premiere.

1:45:491:45:51

Great!

1:45:521:45:53

I didn't receive my invitation,

1:45:531:45:55

but I just assumed the American postal service

1:45:551:45:57

had fallen down upon the job, as per usual.

1:45:571:46:00

I will have a replacement sent to your hotel right away.

1:46:001:46:04

You're very kind, Mr Disney.

1:46:041:46:06

I knew you wouldn't have forgotten me.

1:46:061:46:08

Pamela.

1:46:091:46:11

How could I forget you?

1:46:111:46:14

-Good evening.

-Oh, hello.

1:46:191:46:21

-Could you please order me a cab?

-Absolutely.

-Thank you.

1:46:211:46:24

THEY CHATTER

1:46:311:46:32

-Ralph?

-I had a feeling a certain friend of mine

1:46:411:46:45

might be needing me tonight.

1:46:451:46:46

Oh.

1:46:501:46:51

Hey! Wow.

1:46:511:46:54

You look like a million bucks.

1:46:551:46:57

Thank you.

1:46:571:46:59

-Let's get you to that ball. Huh? Come on.

-Thank you, Ralph. Thank you.

1:50:261:50:28

You should have seen the look on his face.

1:50:281:50:30

He doesn't like us at all.

1:50:301:50:33

'Well, now, that don't seem likely, does it? Let's sit down.

'I shall stay until the wind changes.'

1:51:061:51:09

It's all right. It's all right, Mrs Travers.

1:51:421:51:46

Mr Banks is going to be all right, I promise.

1:51:461:51:49

No, no. It's just...

1:51:491:51:51

1:53:281:53:32

-PL TRAVERS, ON TAPE:

-Now, who's reading? And go slowly.

1:55:461:55:49

You start and I'll take over...

1:55:491:55:51

"Autumn. In the early part of the 20th century, 1910. London.

1:55:511:55:55

"At Number 17, Cherry Tree Lane, the Banks household is in an uproar."

1:55:551:55:59

Hold it. Now, I see that Cherry Tree Lane

1:55:591:56:02

as not too townified on one side of the park.

1:56:021:56:07

And we'll get you a photograph of 50, Smith Street,

1:56:071:56:10

in order to see that the house is really quite like that.

1:56:101:56:14

But it has more of a garden than my house had.

1:56:141:56:17

But it might be useful and amusing to put it in as my house. You see?

1:56:171:56:21

"Upstairs in the nursery, where Mary is measuring up the children

1:56:231:56:27

"with a long row of tape measure,

1:56:271:56:29

"Mary reads off the tape that Jane is..."

1:56:291:56:31

First she says, "What kind of material have we got to work with?"

1:56:311:56:34

No, no. That, we cannot have. That would be quite un-English.

1:56:341:56:38

Mrs Travers, basically, what we want to do here

1:56:381:56:40

is use pretty much what you have in the book.

1:56:401:56:42

Yes, yes.

1:56:421:56:43

Now, I want this tape measure to be used,

1:56:431:56:46

because it was a tape measure that my mother had

1:56:461:56:48

-when she was a little girl.

-Mm-hm.

1:56:481:56:50

And I think it would be very nice.

1:56:501:56:52

-"At the end of the chorus..."

-Read me all that, now.

1:56:521:56:55

-We were going to...

-Read it.

1:56:551:56:57

No, no. You read it.

1:56:571:56:58

Do you want to bear us?

1:56:581:57:00

-No. Go on.

-This is torture!

1:57:001:57:03

Now, go on. "At the end of the chorus..."

1:57:031:57:06

There ought perhaps to have been people in this countryside.

1:57:061:57:10

Do you see? Are you making note of it?

1:57:101:57:12

And they would be the Pearly people.

1:57:121:57:14

They'd be arriving and they'd come nearer

1:57:141:57:17

and they'd see, "Ah. Hmm."

1:57:171:57:19

They know they are not grand enough to eat at this table.

1:57:191:57:22

-Have you got this on tape?

-Yes. Oh, yes.

-Because I think it's important.

1:57:221:57:26

I'm not going to do this film unless I'm available for it.

1:57:261:57:29

-There are these tapes also, you know.

-No, it's not enough.

1:57:291:57:33

We, uh... We have to feel the impact of it.

1:57:331:57:36

Yes, yes. Well, anyway, it brings about whatever it is,

1:57:361:57:39

Mr Banks, um, is able.

1:57:391:57:41

He has a tender, good heart. Not a change of heart.

1:57:411:57:45

Because he's always been sweet, but worried with the cares of life.
