It’s the most beautiful adventure life gives us

Frohman, who was responsible for producing the debut of Peter Pan in both England and the U.S., as well as other productions of JM Barrie’s plays, famously declined a lifeboat seat when the RMS Lusitania was sunk by a German U-boat in the North Atlantic.Actress Rita Jolivet, who stood with Frohman, George Vernon and Captain Alick Scott at the end, recalled Frohman quoting Barrie’s greatest hit, Peter Pan:

“Why fear death? It is the most beautiful adventure that life gives us.”

On a common impulse, they all moved closer together and joined hands just before a great wave swept them all off the deck. Jolivet alone survived.
