Mary Poppins

The wind changes, so Mary Poppins leaves, to the upset of the children. However, their father calls them, having mended the kite. They go and fly it, not even stopping to say goodbye to Mary Poppins, who quietly returns to the sky. Mr. Banks gets his job back and gets promoted to partner at the bank. Mr. Dawes Sr. liked Mr. Banks' joke so well, he "died laughing" (literally, apparently).

Factual error: The Robin that comes along in the movie is an American Robin, not a British Robin.

Question: The very last mistake listed for Mary Poppins says that you can see the lamp post coming through the bag and the table. I have watched this scene many times (in slow motion and otherwise) and I can't seem to find what you are talking about. Could someone please explain it's talking about?

Answer: There's no reason you shouldn't be able to see it, it's so obvious, unless you have the movie on DVD. It's possible they fixed the framing of the scene for its DVD release.
