Mary Poppins Premiere, August 27, 1964

Walt Disney’s attendance at the film’s premiere at Grauman’s Theater was significant because it was the only Disney film premier he had attended since the premiere of Snow White at the Carthay Circle Theater on December 21, 1937.

Here is some footage of the event itself. What is notable is that Walt is asked about not only the film, but also Disney’s involvement at the World’s Fair that year. The clip is loaded with stars as well, so it is just an amazing piece of film!
