Peter Pan (1924) DVD5
One of the best silent films for the whole family, this magical production of Peter Pan is true to both letter and spirit of Barrie’s nursery tale. Largely retaining theatrical trappings from the author’s own stage-play version of the story, the film incorporates some location shooting and charming special effects, bringing Neverland to to the screen in a unique way.

Betty Bronson stars as Peter Pan, the boy who never grew up, who charms Wendy and her brothers to fly with him to Never Never Land. On this distant island of dreams and magic, they struggle to rescue the Lost Boys from Captian Hook (Ernest Torrence) and his band of pirates, encountering along the way the delightful fairy Tinkerbell (Virginia Browne Faire), a man-eating crocodile, and a band of valiant Indians (led by Anna May Wong).

Ingeniously capturing the mysteries and adventures of childhood, James M. Barrie's timeless play became one of the most popular films of the twenties. Virtually unseen for decades, Paramount Studios' 1924 production of Peter Pan has been fully restored from original nitrate materials, with authentic color tints, and is presented in a deluxe edition with a new orchestral score by Philip Carli.
