Peter Pan 1953 info:-
Peter Pan 1953 has been performed hundreds of times, with some of the theater’s greatest names delighting audiences in the title role. But it is doubtful if the wistful fantasy has ever been done with such charm and beauty as fills the Walt Disney version of James M. Barrie’s fanciful play.
In a film that will captivate and amuse adults as fully as it will hold the rapt absorption of children, this Technicolor all-animation treatment of Peter Pan, “the boy who wouldn’t grow up,” captures the imaginative spirit of childhood to a nostalgic degree not possible in any other medium.
Given magically beautiful sets that are sheer fantasy in themselves, Peter Pan also has a lilting music score by Oliver Wallace to lend enchantment, plus some tuneful melodies that seem headed for the Hit Parade. Among the more outstanding ones are “You Can Fly.
Your Mother and Mine” and “The Elegant Captain Hook” by Sammy Cahn and Sammy Fain; “A Pirate’s Life,” Peter Pan 1953 by Wallace and Ed Penner; “Tee Dum, Tee Dee,” by Wallace, Ted Sears, and Winston Hibler; and “Never Smile at a Crocodile,” a nonsensical piece of whistle-bait by Jack Lawrence and the late Frank Churchill.

Peter Pan 1953 Cast and characters:-
- Bobby Driscoll as Peter Pan, the boy who never grows up. Like Tinker Bell, Peter can be very hot-headed. He is also commanding, but very brave. Peter can be quite mean at times (for instance, laughing at Wendy as the mermaids nastily tease her). Despite this, he is caring, especially when it comes to Tinker Bell’s safety. He finds enjoyment in fighting Captain Hook and was responsible for the loss of Hook’s left hand. He was modeled by Roland Dupree.
- Margaret Kerry as the live-action model for silent character Tinker Bell, a hot-headed pixie and Peter Pan’s closest friend. She is very envious of the relationship formed between Wendy and Peter. Her jealousy causes her to have Wendy nearly stoned to death, and eventually to even tell Captain Hook of Pan’s hideout, tricked into thinking Hook’s intention is to capture Wendy, not Peter. When she realizes what she has done, she tries to warn Peter of a bomb that Hook has left for him that is addressed as if from Wendy and in the form of a present. But Peter will not hear of it, and she manages to push the bomb away from him at the very moment it explodes, thus saving Peter’s life while almost costing her own. When Peter searches for her desperately in the ashes, she reflects a change of attitude toward Wendy and the boys, telling Peter he must rescue them first from Captain Hook’s ship. However, Peter says that he cannot leave her and tells her how much he loves her. Toward the end, Tinker Bell helps the Darling children return home by sprinkling pixie dust all across the pirate ship that Peter Pan has just inherited, which is renamed, Captain Pan. Although the Tinker Bell character never speaks, the animators used Kerry as a model to help them draw her movements.
