Mary Martin paperdoll
Published by Saalfied 1942
#2427 Lovely paper doll in much loved condition. But you can still identify her face and the figures.
Popular stage and film musical actress. She truly is "Peter Pan" .........( mid 1950's) on stage and TV . Peter Pan actually flew on stage to the delight of children, old and young.
During the late 40's she enchanted audiences with her performance on Broadway in Rodgers and Hammerstein's "South Pacific" with Ezio Pinza.
"Some Enchanted Evening" sums up the theme of the magical play. Madame Alexander created a hard plastic doll version of Mary in the sailor uniform she wears in the Broadway musical.
