Watch the Original Mary Martin Peter Pan and Think Lovely, Wonderful Thoughts

With this Allison Williams news upon us, let us be neither the first nor last to point you toward the original Peter Pan starring Mary Martin. It's a nostalgia fest for those of us who wore out the VHS, but also evidence that a woman could (and did!) play the most wonderful version of Peter Pan there ever was. Williams surely has big shoes to fill. (That is, if her version of Peter Pan wears shoes.)
