PETER PAN (1924)
Decades before Mary Martin became synonymous with the role of Peter Pan, J. M. Barrie's play was the subject of a lavish Paramount production, a major hit in 1924. Long thought lost, the film was recently rediscovered and fully restored from original nitrate materials, with authentic color tints. Teenager Betty Bronson stars as Peter Pan, the boy who refuses to grow up, and charms Wendy Darling and her brothers to fly with him to Neverland. There, they struggle to rescue the Lost Boys from Captain Hook (Ernest Torrence, Buster Keaton's father in STEAMBOAT BILL, JR.) and his pirates, encountering the fairy Tinker Bell (Virginia Brown Faire), a man-eating crocodile and a group of valiant Indians (led by Anna May Wong as Tiger Lily). With inventive special effects by Roy Pomeroy and fine photography by James Wong Howe.
DIR/PROD Herbert Brenon; SCR Willis Goldbeck, from the play by J. M. Barrie. US, 1924, b&w/color tinting, 105 min, 35mm. NOT RATED
