Mary Poppins

Audio problem: During the Spoonful of Sugar song Mary stands in front of a mirror and sings along with her reflection. Her reflection sings "they find." but the mouth movements do not match. (00:33:30)

Audio problem: In the French, German and Spanish version, in the song Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious, before Mary Poppins says the word backward. While Mary and Bert sing in the dubbed version, in these three languages, you can hear the English version in the background. You can hear it louder in the French version.

Audio problem: After the credits, Bert makes a riddle about the cop and right after his accordion is heard, but he isn't playing it.

Audio problem: After Bert rescues the Fox from the dogs the Fox says "Tis an elegant merry go round horse." If you look closely you'll notice that the voice recording is slightly off-sync with the animation on the Fox's mouth.

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

Trivia: To celebrate the film's anniversary and release on DVD, there was a special screening of the film, at which Dick Van Dyke shared a humorous personal memory. On his way to the original premiere of the film, Dick Van Dyke's limousine ran out of gas not too far from the theater, so Dick himself got out and pushed the car to the red carpet.

Question: The very last mistake listed for Mary Poppins says that you can see the lamp post coming through the bag and the table. I have watched this scene many times (in slow motion and otherwise) and I can't seem to find what you are talking about. Could someone please explain it's talking about?

Answer: There's no reason you shouldn't be able to see it, it's so obvious, unless you have the movie on DVD. It's possible they fixed the framing of the scene for its DVD release.
