I Gotta Crow.....
It seems that NBC was so pleased with it's live version of The Sound of Music, that
they are going to a live version of Peter Pan. I'd be willing to guess that at least 2/3rds
of those reading this do not even remember the original, but back then Peter Pan was
WAY COOL!!!! Mary Martin played Peter, yeah it was weird but it worked.
Captain Hook was played by a marvelous actor named Cyril Ritchard, and it was a
fantastic stage production. I remember always looking for the wires flying Peter across the
stage, and to this day when I hear a clock tick, I think that a huge Crocodile is following
me. And last but not least, I remember clapping as loud as I could so that Tinkerbelle
would recover from the poison that she drank that was meant for Peter.
So......How many of you even know what I'm rambling about?
