The Smooth-Talking Medicine Man and the Storekeeper’s Daughter

All books, songs, movies, and other creative works are protected by copyright laws for a set period of time. No, that is not true. There are two creative works that I know of that are copyrighted forever. That’s right, forever. And both items are British.

The King James translation of the Bible is owned by the British Crown, and some 400 years after it was published, the Crown still claims exclusive rights, and Cambridge University Press enforces and collects royalties for the Royal Family. The other creation is Peter Pan, a 1904 stage play and 1911 book, written by J.M. Barrie. In 1988, when the British copyright term was expiring, Prime Minister James Callaghan sponsored a bill extending the copyright of everything ‘Peter Pan’ forever, as long as the royalties kept going to the Great Ormond Street Hospital.

In 1924, author J.M. Barrie came to Hollywood to oversee a movie production of his story about Peter Pan, and hand-selected the actor who would first portray the famous character. Superstars like Mary Pickford and Gloria Swanson wanted this plum role, but a young unknown actor who had previously only appeared in six small uncredited bit parts was chosen by the author. Betty Bronson, the leading female in this early talking movie was the girl hand-selected by J.M. Barrie to bring his character Peter Pan to the big screen.

In this adventure Betty Bronson is the young daughter of a small-town storekeeper. Emil Goltz, her father, beats her and her little brother daily, and has promised his old friend Peter the butcher that he would allow him to marry her.

When the medicine show hits town, the young daughter quickly falls in love with the smooth-talking medicine man, played by Jack Benny. This medicine man has left pretty young girls waiting for him in just about every town he has visited, and young Mamie Goltz may be his next victim. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
