After the climactic fight with the pirates, Peter and the Lost Boys hoist a flag aboard the Jolly Roger. For the UK release of the film, the flag is the Union Jack; in the US version, this shot is replaced with one of the Stars and Stripes. See more »
Having just watched PETER PAN I must say I was very impressed: The quality of this print was just gorgeous!! The idea of giving it a sepia tone was inspired, since it "antiqued" the film just right.
My only complaint with this film (as it is with so many other silents): please run the film at the correct speed. It is running about 20% faster than it should. The labs that convert these films to video have the equipment to do this properly. Running the film too fast spoils the rhythm of the action, and can ruin scenes because of the increase in speed of the action. Apparently not too many people care about this fast action, or the labs would correct this. Well, one can only hope.
