Mary Poppins

New this month Other mistake: As Admiral Boom's assistant is loading the cannon a third time, he puts the red rocket in nose first rather than stick first.

Movie Nut

New this month Revealing mistake: In the scene with the three chimneys, the sweep coming out of the middle chimney can be seen actually coming up from behind it, as his arms going up are visible.

Movie Nut

New this month Visible crew/equipment: As all the sweeps come out of the chimneys, the wires holding them are visible.

Movie Nut

New this month Visible crew/equipment: As Mary Poppins gets to the top of her exit from the chimney, the wires holding her are visible. And as Bert lands, his wires are visible.

Movie Nut

New this month Revealing mistake: After Bert pulls up his pants to bring the dance challenge to an end, as he walks to the other side of the clearing, both he and the background can be seen through the penguins.

Movie Nut

New this month Continuity mistake: As the Penguins answer the call, and are setting up the table, Bert is laughing and leaning in, and a second later, he is upright and all the way back in the chair.

Movie Nut

New this month Revealing mistake: As Mary and Bert sit at the Penguins' tea tent, when Bert calls for the waiter, the background shows through his head, revealing the live action matted in over the animation.

Movie Nut

New this month Revealing mistake: As the turtle closest to the camera struggles with Bert's weight, Mary's heel clips through the turtle's beak. Also, though a combination of animation and live action, neither Bert or Mary has any kind of reflection on the water, real or otherwise.

Movie Nut

New this month Continuity mistake: When Admiral Boom makes his appearance, and asks about the time gun, he states "Three minutes and Six seconds" until the hour. However, the argument between Katie Nanna, the maid and cook, and Mrs. Banks' "Sister Suffragette" number, and Nanna's announcement of departure take a total of five minutes and ten seconds until the gun is fired.

Movie Nut

New this month Visible crew/equipment: As Mary walks back to sit down the shadow of the camera is on her back.

Movie Nut

New this month Visible crew/equipment: As Mary Poppins walks over to put the hat stand in place, the shadow of the camera plays on her dress.

Movie Nut

New this month Other mistake: When Admiral Boom orders the gun to fire on "the Hottentots" (the sweeps) the rockets sticking out are in the order of a small red on top, a large green in the middle, and a large red on the bottom. A moment later, he orders another salvo, but the rockets are in the same arrangement. The chances of the arrangement being identical twice, unless done carefully, are very slim.

Movie Nut

New this month Other mistake: After Bert and the others dancing on a railing that should have moved, as it did when they jumped off, three sweeps walk back and forth on their hands over the street between buildings. After dropping to only their toes to hold them up, you see them drop all the way down, then stand, where there was no surface in sight to do that on.

Movie Nut

New this month Revealing mistake: As the sweeps dance and jump from building to building, the edges of the matted in street that hides the sound stage floor is easily discernible.

Movie Nut

New this month Revealing mistake: When Mary Poppins goes to bring out the hat stand and the mirror, you can tell that the underside of the table is masked with a overlap of the background to make the illusion complete. Also, when she pulls out the mirror, watch the table leg closest to her, and the bottom of the mirror pass, because the illusion is not quite far enough to cover it.

Movie Nut

Continuity mistake: The father tears the children's advert for a nanny up into 8 pieces, but when it comes out of the chimney it's in far more bits.

Continuity mistake: At the beginning when Mrs. Bank is talking to Katie Nanna you can see the clock behind her and you can clearly see that the time is 6:30 when a little later it is at 6:00.

Factual error: The Robin that comes along in the movie is an American Robin, not a British Robin.

Revealing mistake: An early scene with the constable and the children, Jane silently mouths along with one of Michael's lines.

Continuity mistake: At the bank where the elder Mr. Dawes appears from the back room, he makes it as far as the edge of the step in that shot. In the next shot, he's back by the door walking again to the edge of the step.
