Trivia

The production was never broadcast annually. It was first telecast live on March 7, 1955 as Producers' Showcase: Peter Pan (1955) and re-staged live (by popular demand) on January 3, 1956 as Producers' Showcase: Peter Pan (1956). It was not seen again until this version was videotaped in color and telecast in 1960. Rather than re-broadcast it annually, as CBS began doing with The Wizard of Oz (1939), NBC repeated the videotaped version in 1963, 1966, and 1973. A long hiatus followed, during which this 1960 production was presumed lost. There was a new production starring Mia Farrow with a new score, Peter Pan (1976). Finally, in 1988, the original 1960 videotape of the Mary Martin version was re-discovered intact, restored and remastered, and telecast in March of 1989 - the production's first TV showing in 16 years.

Goofs

When the medicine has been contaminated, it changes color from white to red, yet Peter doesn't notice. In the conventions of theater, this may be purely for the benefit of the audience, and not visible to the characters on stage. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Narrator: Some say that as we grow up, we become different people at different ages, but I don't believe this. I think we remain the same throughout, merely passing in these years from one room, to another, but always in the same house. If we unlock the rooms of the far past, we can look in and see ourselves beginning to become you and me.
WendyJohn: [dressed up like their parents and dancing] One-two-three, one-two-three, one-two-three, one-two-three.

To me, the undisputed champion of Peter Pan films.
4 January 2004 | by (Pittsburgh, Pa) – See all my reviews

This is truly a magical movie. The singing, the colors, the flying. Mary Martin embodies Peter Pan so gracefully and whimsically that I cannot imagine this character as played by anyone else. I view this Peter Pan as the best and most classic depiction of the boy who never grew up.
