In this magical tale about the boy who refuses to grow up, Peter Pan and his mischievous fairy sidekick Tinkerbell visit the nursery of Wendy, Michael, and John Darling.
Many of the camera setups, especially during the first fifteen minutes or so, are literal duplicates of the ones in Producers' Showcase: Peter Pan (1955), first telecast in 1955 and now on kinescope. The script also follows the script of the 1955 version nearly word-for-word, and many of the musical orchestrations are virtually the same.
Some say that as we grow up, we become different people at different ages, but I don't believe this. I think we remain the same throughout, merely passing in these years from one room, to another, but always in the same house. If we unlock the rooms...
When the medicine has been contaminated, it changes color from white to red, yet Peter doesn't notice. In the conventions of theater, this may be purely for the benefit of the audience, and not visible to the characters on stage.
