Good morning! This day in Disney history, Feb 5th, 1953. Peter Pan (based on James M. Barrie's 1904 story) opens @ the Roxy Theatre in New York City. Peter Pan was one of Walt Disneys' very favorite stories. Originally Walt had intended for Peter Pan to be his 2nd animated film following "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs". But, ultimately it was Disneys' 14th animated feature film.
Directed by Clyde Geronimi, Wilfred Jackson & Hamilton Luske.
The film features the voices of Bobby Driscoll (as Peter) & Kathryn Beaumont (as Wendy Darling). Did you know Tink was based off of a real person? Indeed she was! Contrary to some rumors swirling around that Tinker Bell’s design was based on Marilyn Monroe, Tink was in fact drawn from the mannerisms, actions, & poses of the 22-year-old Margaret Kerry. (Pictured below along w/ the original movie poster). In addition,
Margaret was the voice for the red-haired mermaid in the Neverland lagoon scenes.
This will be the final Disney animated feature released through RKO, as Walt Disney will establish his own distribution company, Buena Vista Distribution, by the end of 1953. Have you seen this film? What is your favorite part? Who is your favorite character & why? As always, thanks for reading!
