Peter Pan

Having annoyed Carroll purists in 1951 with his cartoon version of Alice in Wonderland, Disney went on to exasperate Barrie fans by using American boy star Bobby Driscoll's voice for Peter Pan, modelling the usually unseen Tinkerbell on Marilyn Monroe, and employing the Sammys Cahn and Fain to compose songs like 'What Makes the Red Man Red'. If you can view it without thinking of Disney fucking about with yet another children's classic and relax in the studio's last decent use of Technicolor, then you're in for a treat.
