Peter Pan (1953)

 

Director: Clyde Geronomi, Wilfred Jackson & Hamilton Luske
Writer: J. M. Barrie

This was always a boyhood favorite of mine, though I didn’t remember much of it, but the story itself is one that I will love for all time. It’s one of those things, like Robin Hood, that will never get old and I love seeing every adaptation of the story. It is so magical. The opening scene is probably my favorite, it gave me goosebumps this time watching it again. John and Michael battling, Nana picking everything up, Peter trying to find his shadow, then the kids learning how to fly. So wonderful, and the song is great. I especially love when Michael gives Nana fairy dust and she flies in the air to the point that she can, since she is roped to a tree, so awesome. Then of course we are treated to the amazing world of Neverland and a host of other characters that include Smee, the Lost Boys, Princess Tigerlilly, and of course Captain Hook. They are all such good characters. A film, and a story, that will never get old.
