In stuffy old London, a super-nanny descends (from the sky, via umbrella) on a dysfunctional family with precocious children and proceeds to employ some rather remarkable skills, a bit of magic, and a teaspoon of sugar, to improve their lives. This classic musical received a record (in its day) 13 Academy Award nominations. A film everyone must see, and appropriate for any age. It’s sing along night at Nyack’s Artopee Way Drive-In (AKA Nyack Municipal Parking Lot at Artopee Way). FREE ADMISSION

“Julie Andrews’ first appearance on the screen is a signal triumph and she performs as easily as she sings, displaying a fresh type of beauty ” – Variety (1964)

“The sets are luxuriant, the songs lilting, the scenario witty but impeccably sentimental, and the supporting cast only a pinfeather short of perfection.” – TIME (1964)
