Alice Through the Looking Glass (1973) (DVD)

New to DVD! Join Alice on her journey through the mirror in BBC's fanciful adaptation of Lewis Caroll's classic novel! In an alternate world, just on the other side of the mirror's reflection, Alice finds herself in the middle of a life-sized chess game, where she encounters a variety of surreal scenarios and fantastical characters, including Tweedledee and Tweedledum, Humpty Dumpty, the Red Queen and others. To be crowned queen and return home, Alice must traverse all the ranks to the end of this massive chessboard-but will she make it?

This is the 1974 BBC production of Alice Through the Looking Glass, which drew me in as a child on Public Television. The actress playing Alice is Sarah Sutton, who later became famous playing Nyssa on Doctor Who. I think the page should be edited to reflect this.

I'm a collector of all versions of Alice in Wonderland and Through The Looking Glass that I can get on DVD. This is a must have for not only collectors, but for anyone! There are very few versions of Through The Looking Glass, and I was very excited about receiving this one. Although it is old and a bit "cheesy", I think it was done beautifully. The little girl who played Alice is adorable and quite a good actress. The one thing I don't understand, is why she is shown on the front and back covers as wearing the well known blue dress, when throughout the entire film she is wearing a yellow dress. I know it's not of great importance, but it just bothered me. But all in all, I loved this movie and would highly recommend it to anyone.

What's good: Truest rendition of Looking Glass I can recall, and that puts it way ahead of most. Great Humpty Dumpty - and I've heard literary analysis from the recent generation of intellectoids that made a lot less sense. Then, my favorite: the White Knight, possibly Carroll's way of injecting his real-world self into this lovely bit of nonsense.

What's not: the effects. There's an awful lot of primitive green-screen work, with mismatched foreground and background, feet sliding in thin air (not when they're supposed to), and more. Visually, this flick sits way down my my preference list, but the story-telling very nearly makes up for it.
