(Welcome to Out of the Disney Vault, where we explore the unsung gems and forgotten disasters currently streaming on Disney+.)
Mary Poppins was a mammoth success the likes of which Walt Disney Pictures had rarely seen in its live-action fare in the mid-1960s. And audiences seemed primed for big, splashy musicals. So in the wake of its success, Walt Disney himself worked with the same songwriting team on a new movie that would hopefully do for the extremely rich and the gearheads of the world what Mary Poppins did for the English.
And that’s how we have The Happiest Millionaire, finally available to stream on Disney+.
