Product Description

{$Mary Martin} originally starred in the {$Jules Styne}/{$Carolyn Leigh}/{$Comden} & {$Green} musical version of {$James M. Barrie}'s {#Peter Pan} on Broadway in 1953. On March 7, 1955, {#Peter Pan} was restaged for television, live and in color, on NBC's {#Producer's Showcase}. The telecast was so popular that it was repeated, again live, the following year. Blessedly, {$Mary Martin} returned to commit {#Peter Pan} to videotape in 1960; this version was first telecast on December 8 of that year. Forty-seven years old at the time, {$Martin} is utterly enchanting as {%Peter Pan}, the little boy who won't grow up and who whisks Wendy Darling ({$Maureen Bailey}) and her brothers Michael ({$Kent Fletcher}) and John ({$Joey Trent}) out of their London nursery and off to Never Never Land: "First star to the left, then straight on till morning." Song highlights include "I've Gotta Crow," "I'm Flying," "I Won't Grow Up," "Neverland," "Ugg-a-Wugg" and "Hook's Waltz." As with the Broadway version, the staging and choreography was in the more than capable hands of {$Jerome Robbins}. {$Cyril Ritchard} shamelessly hams it up as the wicked Captain Hook, and also doubles as the more benign Mr. Darling. Both Martin and Ritchard re-created their Broadway roles, as did {$Sondra Lee} as the incongruously blonde Indian princess Tiger Lily. Martin's daughter {$Heller Halliday} also appears in the minor role of Liza the maid, while the whole wonderful package is narrated by {$Lynn Fontanne}. Repeated several times into the 1970s, this full-color version of {#Peter Pan} was put into mothballs for several years, then retelecast (complete with the old NBC Peacock logo) in 1989. For this return engagement, the play was edited to accommodate extra commercials; happily, the complete version of the 1960 {#Peter Pan} is now available on videocassette. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
