When he was six years old his next-older brother David, whom he knew was his mother’s favorite, died two days before his 14th birthday in an ice-skating accident. This left his mother devastated, and Barrie tried to fill David’s place in his mother’s attentions, even wearing David’s clothes and whistling in the manner that he did. Barrie’s mother found comfort in the fact that her dead son would remain a boy forever, never to grow up and leave her. This undoubtedly influenced James’ most famous character, Peter Pan.


Played by Johnny Depp in Marc Forster’s Finding Neverland (2004) (about the creation of “Peter Pan”), which also starred Kate Winslet as Sylvia Llewellyn-Davies and Dustin Hoffman as Charles Frohman. By coincidence, Hoffman had played Capt. Hook in Steven Spielberg’s Hook (1991), which depicted an adult Peter Pan.


He was a writer, known for Peter Pan (2003), Peter Pan (1953) and Hook (1991). He was married to Mary Ansell.


After the death of two of Barrie’s close friends, Arthur and Sylvia Llewelyn-Davies, he adopted their five sons: Peter, Jack, George, Michael and Nicholas. Barrie was very close to all the boys, and was heartbroken when Michael drowned in 1921 and George was killed in battle in 1915 during World War I. Their brother, Peter Llewelyn-Davies, committed suicide on April 5, 1960.


From 1928 onward all royalties from the sales of “Peter Pan” were donated to the Great Ormond Street Hospital. In 1987 (50 years after Barrie’s death), when normally royalty rights would have expired, by a special act of Parliament royalties were allowed to continue going to the hospital in perpetuity. Many countries dispute the right to institute perpetual royalties, considering Peter Pan to be in the public domain, and refuse to enforce the copyright within their boundaries.


Barrie’s last major play, “Mary Rose”, dating from 1920, was much admired by Alfred Hitchcock, who tried to set up a film version in 1964. Jay Presson Allen, screenwriter of his then-recent “Marnie”, completed a first-draft screenplay, but Universal, with whom Hitchcock had recently entered into a long-term partnership, felt that it would be totally uncommercial and vigorously discouraged the project. Hitchcock liked to tell interviewers that it was actually written into his contract that he couldn’t make a film of “Mary Rose” for Universal.


He was awarded a Baronetcy in the 1913 King’s Birthday Honours List for his services to literature. In the 1922 King’s New Year Honours List, he was awarded the Order of Merit for his services to literature.


Awarded honorary degrees by the Universities of St Andrews (1898), Edinburgh (1909), Oxford (1926) and Cambridge (1930).
