“I opened the door to Mary Poppins… who should be there but Walt Disney!”
In ‘Saving Mr. Banks’, the feel good movie of the season, media mogul Walt Disney (Tom Hanks) convinces the author P.L. Travers (Emma Thompson) to let him adapt her book, Mary Poppins, to the big screen. Their collaboration ultimately results in much more than ‘just a spoonful of sugar’… 50 years later, Mary Poppins is one of the highest-grossing and most watched movies of all time. Living proof that great partnerships allow visionary leaders to make great things even better, and it pays off to know a good thing when you see it.
