David Tomlinson, an actor who starred in more than 50 films, including ''Mary Poppins'' and ''The Love Bug,'' died on Saturday in Buckinghamshire. He was 83.

Mr. Tomlinson delighted millions as the father of the two children in the 1964 musical ''Mary Poppins.'' He went on to star in the ''The Love Bug'' in 1969 and played opposite Angela Lansbury in ''Bedknobs and Broomsticks'' in 1971.

His last film, with Peter Sellers in 1979, was ''The Fiendish Plot of Dr. Fu Manchu.''

''He was always an actor, and that was his passion,'' said Mr. Tomlinson's son James. ''And although he chose to give it up in 1979 and enjoyed spending time with his family, he stayed in touch with the actors of today.''

He added, ''It was extraordinary how people knew who he was 20 years after he stopped working.''

Mr. Tomlinson is survived by his wife, Audrey, and three other sons.
