Peter Pan

Overview

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.

Overview

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.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Craig Butler
An instant classic when first telecast, this Peter Pan may come as a surprise to those raised on Disney's animated version. Sticking rather closer to J.M. Barrie's original conception of Peter Pan and his world, there's a wonderful fragility to the piece, as well as a slightly dark undercurrent to it, as when Wendy is shot down with an arrow by the Lost Boys or the dismissive manner with which Mr. Darling treats his children. All of this meshes with Jerome Robbins' original vision of a fantasy enacted from a child's point of view, and that vision gives the piece a great deal of its life and tone. The greater part of that life and tone, however, comes from the stellar performance of Mary Martin in the title role. Make no mistake about it: Martin is not playing a boy, no matter how much she may proclaim that fact. There is nothing boyish about her -- but she is remarkably childish, and it is her embodiment of the spirit of youth (and all that is both glorious and selfish about it) that is remarkable. No less remarkable is this Broadway legend's handling of her many musical numbers. She's in rare voice and literally glows during each moment of song. Cyril Ritchard does quite well as her co-star, making a deliciously hammy Hook, and the rest of the cast does the little that is required of it quite well. While the flying effects are necessarily less impressive than when seen live in a theater, they still pack a nice punch -- as does this delightful production as a whole.
