I want everybody to get eaten by the crocodile

Peter Pan (1953) – Part Two.

We’re still stuck in Neverland, and kind of wishing we could just grow up instead. We are talking about the depictions of the few women in the film, the thoughtless racism inherent in the story, and we give you a few films to consider watching instead of this one.

If you’re not a patron already, you should check that out. We recently posted a Patreon exclusive chat about how we felt when the podcast first launched.

Next time: Lady and the Tramp!

Note: In the first Peter Pan episode, Mary mentions a documentary on depictions of Native Americans in Hollywood films, but she couldn’t remember the name. That film was Reel Injun: On The Trail of the Hollywood Indian (2009) by Neil Diamond, Catherine Bainbridge, and Jeremiah Hayes. It’s available on Amazon Prime.
