Never had so large an audience seen a Broadway show. 65 million people, one out of every three Americans, sat with their families to watch Mary Martin's definitive performance of the beloved Broadway musical, Peter Pan. It was one of the first milestones in television history, and a collective experience for our parents, grandparents and great grandparents. The 1956 television restaging came 10 months after the original success, to capitalize on the phenomenon. (The Blu-ray disc contains both performances.) Beautifully restored from the original kinescopes, never before released for home viewing, directed by Jerome Robbins, it is a must for your dvd library. Black & White. DVD runs 105 minutes. Blu-ray with extras runs 235 minutes. Please specify DVD or Blu-ray.

Peter Pan with Mary Martin
Review by ANN C. on 08/02/22 review stating Peter Pan with Mary Martin
When I was a little girl I was allowed to stay up late on a school night so I could watch this program. I went around crowing for days. Mary Martin has been a favorite actress my whole life. This program is a piece of my childhood I am happy to revisit.

Peter Pan
Review by M. B. on 01/05/22 review stating Peter Pan
Its not a movie its a LIVE BROADCAST of the stage musical. It was broadcast in black and white, once in 1955 and once in 1956. Mary Martin reprised the role in 1960, and this was broadcast in color, and this version has been shown on TV several times, though never annually like the Wizard of OZ. This is a classic, too bad the quality is poor - I understand it was not saved on movie or video tape but a much older process. Still, NO ONE embodied Peter like Mary Martin!!!

Love this movie, but not in B/W
Review by ROBERTA G. on 11/14/21 review stating Love this movie, but not in B/W
I had this movie in a colorized version on VHS years ago... This is a clever and timeless rendition of the Peter Pan story, but even though the catalog says B/W, I didnt realize that this DVD was in grainy B/W. This movie is perfect for the individual who really wants to relive a wonderful memory of watching this B/W grainy movie on TV. For those of us who must have a colorized rendition of fabulous old favorites, or insist on a non-grainy movie, this is not your DVD.

Not the one I thought it was
Review by LAURA W. on 01/19/17 review stating Not the one I thought it was
Obviously I didnt read the description thoroughly in the catalog. I thought I was ordering the 1950s color version of the movie that used to be broadcast every Christmas when I was a child. I was disappointed to see that it was the black and white version. My grandchildren were a bit disappointed, too. But, they watched it. I should have read the description more carefully.
