Peter Pan (Betty Bronson) charms Wendy Darling and her brothers into flying away with him to a magical realm of enchantment, in this adaptation of James M. Barrie’s famous play.  In Never Never Land, Peter and the gang meet Tiger Lilly (Anna May Wong), a kind-hearted fairy named Tinkerbelle, a tribe of valiant Indians, and the mean Captain Hook, who commands a band of pirates.  For this first movie version of his play, author Barrie himself chose actress Bronson to be the first Peter on film.  Cinematography by the great James Wong Howe.  Digitally restored from an original, color tinted 35mm nitrate print.  102 minutes.

“Delightful adaptation of the James M. Barrie classic….  Bronson makes the role of Peter all her own in this charming fantasy.”  ––Leonard Maltin
