A few days late for this Sketch Dailies topic, but I've had this in the back of my mind for a while now. When I learned that there were other actresses considered for the role of Mary Poppins before practically-perfect-in-every-way Julie Andrews, I wondered what they might have been like. I think Mary Martin in the late fifties/early sixties would relish another flying role, and wouldn't even have to pretend to be a little boy! Angela Lansbury at that time could still be a bit of a glamorpuss and would be really beautiful in that setting. Bette Davis made a super-creepy movie called "The Nanny" and thus would make a great Scary Mary. Of course, "Mary Poppins" is one of my all-time favorite movies and I wouldn't change a frame of it, but its still fun to speculate.
