She is kind towards the children, but can be firm when needed. Banks and caught up his bag. Films[ edit ] Mary Poppins in the Disney filmas portrayed by Julie Andrewsis also fairly stern but at the same time more gentle, cheerful, and nurturing of the two Banks children, of whom she is in charge. The banking system, the preserve of ancient old men shouting at each other across marble hallways, is a farce and a confidence trick.

When Michael is naughty she threatens to hand him over to "the policeman" and she sends grumpy Jane to exile inside a cracked Doulton bowl. For a start the cover was a muddy, slightly sinister pink.

Read on for more about the woman behind Mary Poppins. Hysterically grateful that anyone at all is prepared to work for her, a cowed Mrs Banks immediately agrees to waive the formalities.

My parents had form when it came to missing the point. Allora in Queensland - to where her banking father, Travers Goff, uprooted the family before his death through alcoholism - also boasts a plaque. And that this betrayal, in the end, is survivable. His children produce an advertisement for their ideal nanny "with a cheery disposition, rosy cheeks, play games - all sorts", etc. She regretted that pressure of work meant she didn't have time to accept the role. Some characters, most notably an impudent jackdaw seen in the first two books, call her "The Great Exception", meaning, among other things, that she is the only human being who has retained the magical secrets infants possess such as the power to communicate with animals until they grow up and forget about them.
