Peter Pan.
« on: March 31, 2007, 03:22:59 AM »
i am always on the look out for a person who i think is what Peter Pan would look like.

Can i ask people to describe what you think he looks like?

or give an example of a person who looks like Peter?

Please reply.

I think Barrie's only photographs of Michael Llewelyn Davies taken in 1906 when Michael was aged 6 are as close as I've ever seen to what Barrie had in mind, particularly in describing Peter in the novel of 1911.  Frampoton's statue in Kensington Gardens is altogether too fey... "it doesn't show the devil in Peter" commented Barrie - though to be sure there's not much of the devil in those photos of Michael either!

 I agree about Michael--hear that drum beating...

As for the devil in Peter...I've seen some glints here and there- some pictures of Anno Birkin that had that part of Pan's twinkle (as well as many others of star language) and I think Barney Holm, who played George in The Lost Boys reflected it when he smiled (like the scene when they're looking through pictures or when he's gazing on his back). Certain pictures of the five. Seen others on my own too that come to that and the novel discription, though those were never right on, and, of course, none of the ghastly movie versions! That's just my opinion, so it doesn't really matter.

As for Barrie's POV...wonder what his brother David looked like?
