Mary Martin. I never saw her so all I have to judge her on is her voice, and boy, is it amazing! She has a gorgeous voice and it is so lively. I also love the tone of her voice.

The 1960 telecast of Peter Pan with MM is commercially available almost anywhere. Also MM sings her starmaking song "My Heart Belongs to Daddy", from Cole Porter's Leave It to Me (1938) in the 1940's Porter pseudo-bio film Night and Day, starring Cary Grant.

BTW I saw and met Sondra Lee, Tiger Lily in the 1954 Broadway PP and the 1960 PP telecast, about 4 weeks ago in/after the NYC revival of Porter's Fifty Million Frenchmen.

I saw her in Peter Pan (on VHS), but not South Pacific.
