Trivia

This first television showing of the Mary Martin "Peter Pan" became the highest rated TV production seen up to that time. It aired live a mere ten days after it had closed on Broadway. It was so successful that it was re-broadcast live with most of the same cast only ten months later. Four years after that, it was videotaped with most of the same cast and presented on TV again in December 1960. The 1960 version has since been rebroadcast several times and released on video cassette and DVD. The DVD has since gone out of print and is only available at a hugely expensive price. See more »

The b&w version was a great and magical childhood memory
8 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Finally I discovered what I thought I remembered as a four year old. After seeing the 1960 color version on VHS, I kept saying I remembered seeing it in black and white 2 times before. Now the IMDb has helped me to know the truth, that it was broadcast twice (2 productions) in black and white in 2 successful years, 1955 & 56. These are the ones I remember best as a four year old. I didn't realize the 56 broadcast was not the same as the 55. In 1960, I was 9 and the color production just didn't do it for me. The black and white version was wonderful with just as much awe and wonder impact as the high tech films of today, even without any computer effects. You had to have been there! Please comment if you had a similar reaction to the b&w version.
