  • Barry from Sauquoit, NyOn August 27th 1964, the Disney movie 'Mary Poppins' had its world premiere at the Grauman's Chinese Theatre in Hollywood and two days later opened in theaters across the U.S.A. and Canada...
    Eight months later on April 18th, 1965 "Super-Cali-Fragil-Istic-Expi-Ali-Docious" by Julie Andrews & Dick Van Dyke and the Pearlies entered Billboard's Hot Top 100 chart at position #87; and on May 16th, 1965 it peaked at #66 {for 1 week} and spent 5 weeks on the Top 100...
    One other song from the movie made the Top 100 chart; a covered version of "Chim, Chim Cheree" by the New Christy Minstrels, it reached #81 on the chart and it debut on the Top 100 the same day as "Super-Cali-Fragil-Istic-Expi-Ali-Docious".
