Peter Pan, worth the watch for the late, great Mr Kaye alone!
4 January 2006 | by deano666See all my reviews

I have not seen this movie (and its not without trying constantly!) for about 25 years. I used to love watching this every single year on the TV and basically would do /pay almost anything to retain a copy, remembering I live in Australia and the American VHS format does not work over here. If anybody out there can help me with where I may be able to find this, preferably in DVD then please let me know. Cheers.

This TV-movie deserved the Emmy + 1 other award it received. It is a timeless classic and personally the best version of the many that have been made of 'The boy that would not grow up'. All the cast are fantastic and the special effects inclusive of 'non real'/puppet of 'Nanna' the dog are spectacular for the time it was made. The songs are fantastically written and performed , in particular "Who needs a mother" and the demise of Danny Kaye's Hook was superb and better than any 'panto'. If there is anyone out there that can help me out, please do so ASAP.

Thanks.

Deano.
