'Mary Poppins'

There's just something about Julie Andrews. She's played not one, but two of the most iconic nannies of all time. First up was the 1964 classic Mary Poppins, which centered on Andrews as the umbrella-toting governess who falls from the sky just as the Banks family is at its wits end, complete with distracted mum, cranky, business-minded dad and bored, neglected kids.
