Trivia: J M Barrie befriends Sylvia Llewelyn Davies and her four sons. Sylvia is portrayed as a widow, which allows J M Barrie to become something of a surrogate husband and father figure to the Llewelyn Davies family. The truth was rather more complicated: Sylvia's husband, Arthur Llewelyn Davies was still alive when J M Barrie befriended the family, and in 1904 when the stage play of Peter Pan debuted on the London stage. Arthur developed a malignant disease that caused his death in 1907, when J M Barrie paid his medical bills.
Peter Llewelyn Davies: That scepter's made of wood.
J.M. Barrie: Yes, well, we do dream on a budget here, don't we?
