I grew up with the Cyril Ritchard Hook and found him funny, to the point of dashing around the house with mom's yard stick in hand, swatting at the curtains.
Trust Jason to make Hook sexy. :adore

Fifty Flop Movies that Deserved Better

Peter Pan rated 45 of 50:


The Flop: Peter Pan had the misfortune of being released a week before another fantasy book adap - a little film called The Lord Of The Rings: The Return Of The King.

Why It Deserved Better: The film's got a strong visual style and some great performances (Isaacs is a stand-out). It's a shame it didn't turn into a franchise.

Helen - how absolutely true. One very under rated movie!

That's an interesting assertion, and one that I, for one, find comforting...

It's nice to know that we are not alone.

I absolutely LOVED Jason in "Peter Pan!!" No, I should say I became obsessed...so what else is new, with his portrayal of Hook!!
I had just discovered this handsome, incredibly talented man only a few months earlier in "Chamber of Secrets" where I totally lost it, was supposed to hate him as Lucius but when I heard that voice and saw that profile.... :adore :adore My dear grandson was with me and I have thanked him because if it were not for reading him "Harry Potter" I wouldn't have had the best times in my life meeting Jason and being with the dearest ladies in the world....my gosh but I do go on don't I!! :D

Back to Hook and just to confirm my "Magnificent Obsession" I saw "Peter Pan" 35 times!! Once, I was the only person in this sweet little theater in a suburb of Chicago. I saved my ticket stubs in a little red velvet pouch, have autographed pics of Hook on my bedroom wall as well.....gosh he is "GORGEOUS!!" He got a real bum deal from that film and it makes me so upset because he deserves better!! Now I feel I really need a Jason and Lost Girl meeting again!! :hug :hug

I think this is my very favourite version of Peter Pan. Jason is utterly amazing as the charasmatic / sexy Captain Hook, also as Mr Darling. Why this was not a hit movie is beyond me. Just checked the Hugh Jackman Pan and that did not make a profit. I wonder why the subject matter is not connecting with movie audiences.

Anyway Jason was amazing.

Peter Pan is still one of my favourite Jason-movies
