Mousetalgia Episode 223: Peter Pan, Disney Legend Alice Davis
Walt Disney’s “Peter Pan” turns 60, and we have a fun, hodgepodge salute to the classic film. Jeff reviews a screening of the newly-restored film at the El Capitan Theatre with a panel discussion that included Kathryn Beaumont (Wendy), Margaret Kerry (Tinker Bell), historian Leonard Maltin, and filmmaker Ted Thomas. Then, dive into the history and making of the film, with bits about the history of Peter Pan’s outfit, Peter Pan in Disneyland, and Walt Disney’s animation studio. Finally, learn a little more about animator Marc Davis (who created Tinker Bell) from his wife, Disney Legend Alice Davis, in our exclusive interview! Plus, Sofia the First, art collecting, and more!
