Peter redux.
3 January 2003 | by movibuf1962See all my reviews

A variation on the same stage-bound television performance first done by Mary Martin 26 years earlier. It was presented as a HALLMARK HALL OF FAME TV special (apparently with new songs), but never really caught on with viewers or Nielsens. In the continuing tradition of women in the Pan role, Mia Farrow does a perfectly capable job (sporting the boyish, Twiggy hair cut at the time). Danny Kaye was also fine as Captain Hook. But the real surprise was the casting of Paula Kelly- a striking, long-legged African-American dancer- as Tiger Lily. Her memorable entrance in the show is in a scantily-clad costume of loincloths (with an equally scantily clad male chorus) and was probably sexier than absolutely necessary- but I supremely didn't care.
