We are all passengers hanging on the coattails of Time, some of us though refuse to move on once the journey has ended; they hang around and experience the decay of all they ever knew, almost inevitably again and again. Death is traumatic, undoubtedly disturbing, not only for those left behind to carry on riding those flowing coattails but perhaps for those who see the battle and fight end; for life is silent and hurtful for those who see life through the dark hollow eyes of A Ghost Story.

Such was the shape of the world in the 1950s that it was easier to mention in homes up and down the American political highway the issues surrounding Communism than it was to talk openly about the love shared between two women, that the so-called threat of Communism could be seen as a driving force of debate and yet to be a lesbian was something that was swept under so many carpets that it enjoyed an abundance of innuendo and implication.

The astounding J. M. Barrie’s mischievous creation, the noble and forthright Peter Pan, is so beloved, not just in the U.K. but all over the globe, that it really is not surprising just how much affection the character garners and just how many films and stories that stay in the mind. It is a character that offer offers everything to the child’s imagination and as such stays within the heart of the adult when such things as fantastical pirates, fairies, crocodiles and flying boys should perhaps be left to fade away into the world of half remembered dreams.
