Mary Poppins While it doesn't have the soft-edged sense of whimsy and wonder that the Travers books have, Walt Disney's 1964 version of the Mary Poppins stories does at least manage to avoid the worst excesses of that studio's most saccharine work — thanks largely to the verve of the performances by Dick Van Dyke and everyone's pal, Julie Andrews (140 min.). — D.D. (Paramount Theatre, Oakland, 8:00)
