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 »

Peter Pan is GREAT!!
26 February 2006 | by david_hawkinsSee all my reviews

I use a video of the 1960 TV broadcast to teach middle school students the elements of drama and production. It was a lot of fun showing them the turning point. It was also the best example of a Broadway musical available to me to teach the form.

They had fun trying to catch the minor miscues ("Wendy" missing her mark when she landed in Neverland for example.) Others thought there was something wrong with the sound at the beginning of the Second Act and Sondra Lee as Tigerlily first enters the screen. It took some explaining that sometimes silence is used as an effect in a stage production.
