The Boys: The Sherman Brothers Story
Source: Catholic News Service
Poignant biography of Walt Disney Studios' most famous songwriter team—Richard Sherman and Robert Sherman—whose cheery songs for such films as "Mary Poppins" and "The Jungle Book" belied a fractious personal relationship. Directed by their sons, Jeffrey C. Sherman and Gregory V. Sherman, the well-crafted documentary (unobjectionable though probably not for the kiddies)—which includes interviews with Julie Andrews, Dick Van Dyke, Angela Lansbury and other luminaries, as well as friends and family members—attempts to trace the roots of the conflict between these two disparate personalities, and also illuminates the mutual respect and love beneath the strained surface. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-I—general patronage. Not rated by the Motion Picture Association of America.
