P.L. Travers Audio from the Mary Poppins Meetings at Disney
P.L. Travers reads through the Mary
Poppins script with screenwriter Don
DaGradi and brothers Robert and Richard
Sherman, the duo behind the film's music.
The infamous meetings took place at the
Disney Studios in L.A. in 1961. Travers
seems somewhat cordial during these
particular excerpts from her recordings,
but her rigidness can still be detected in
the tone of her voice.
