2010 -- THE YEAR OF ALICE IN WONDERLAND @ 10 April 2010 09:48 PM
Thanks to the major Alice in Wonderland theatrical release of this year, several heretofore unreleased versions hit video recently, including this, the first sound version from 1933 starring Charlotte Henry (Bo Peep in the Babes in Toyland).



In its day, the film was a star studded extravaganza but today only a handful of the names are as well known. Cartoon fans will appreciate Edward Everett Horton (Fractured Fairy Tales) as the Mad Hatter, Charlie Ruggles (Aesop and Son) as the March Hare and Sterling Holloway (Disney's Cheshire Cat & Pooh) as the Frog.

One of the neatest parts is the animated version of "The Walrus and the Carpenter" that occurs about two thirds through the film. Click here to see Cary Grant as the Mock Turtle, which preceeds the sequence containing the animation.
