Trivia:
Many of the camera setups, especially during the first fifteen minutes or so, are literal duplicates of the ones in "Producers' Showcase: Peter Pan (#1.7)" (1955), first telecast in 1955 and now on kinescope. The script also follows the script of the 1955 version nearly word-for-word, and many of the musical orchestrations are virtually the same.See more »
Goofs:
Incorrectly regarded as goofs: Live theatre productions have different rules than cinema, regarding suspension of disbelief. Most examples of crew or equipment visible, and related imperfect illusions, are not goofs in this genre.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.
Wendy, John:[dressed up like their parents and dancing] One-two-three, one-two-three, one-two-three, one-two-three.

A television triumph three different times., 18 October 2002
Author: movibuf1962 from Washington, DC

It should be clarified that the wonderful Mary Martin actually did "Peter Pan" on television three different times, and I'm relatively sure that only the last version is available on home video. The 1955 broadcast was done on bona-fide live television, as a chapter in the PRODUCER'S SHOWCASE anthology a few years before videotape- and I imagine must've been a sight to see. It was re-staged all over again, live, the following year, and I suspect that this version is on kinescope- but is probably only viewable at the MT&R in New York or L.A. (There are production stills of all the performances, and Martin's costume and hair color are slightly different each time.) It was finally videotaped, in 'living color,' in 1960, and if you are as old as I am, you may remember the network re-broadcasts always being preceded by the blooming NBC peacock. The tape is now a DVD, and still includes the original network cards, but sadly, not the peacock. It holds up quite nicely, although the heavy stage makeup and flying wires are now painfully obvious. But it is a marvelous time capsule of an earlier, gentler, period of TV entertainment.
