Editorial Reviews

This all-star musical adaptation of Lewis Carroll's classic tale will delight children and adults alike. Employing virtually every prominent British performer of its time, from pre-Bond girl Fiona Fullerton as Alice and pre-Phantom Michael Crawford as the White Rabbit, to comic luminaries Peter Sellers and Dudley Moore, this magical and intoxicating version explores Alice's dizzying adventures in the rabbit hole both faithfully and metaphorically as coming of age story.

This is my favorite production of the ALICE books. I love the sets, songs, and casting. It's also very British, which I think adds another great element to the mix.

However, skip this DVD edition. I got it, excited to see ALICE'S ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND in widescreen and, perhaps a better print than what's previously been available.

No such luck.

The DVD appears to be struck from the same crappy VHS version that's been out there for ages. Faded colors. Pan-and-scan. In this age of DVD, quality like this is such a shame.

Format: DVD
This is a very interesting adaptation of Alice in Wonderland, featuring a plethora of major British actors from the time this movie was made. Note that today's younger audience, weened on an MTV diet of rapid cuts and incredible CGI, may find this slow. But if one can get beyond that, it's most definitely worth a watch.

That said, this DVD transfer is basically UNWATCHABLE. It's not clear what source they used for the transfer, but there are TERRIBLE audio pitch problems throughout the movie, with wow and flutter horribly apparent. This is particularly problematic for a movie like this with a significant orchestral and vocal score. If you have any sense of pitch, you'll find yourself pulling your hair out listening to the off-key strings! The video quality is pretty horrible, as well--worse than standard cable. A real travesty.

I bought this DVD and got it brand new sealed. However it is from a company called DIGIVIEW PRODUCTIONS and the quality of the picture is absolutely horrible. There is almost no color and there are many spots where it appears it was dropped to 15 frames a second or less. The movie itself is very good but this copy totally sucks. This DIGIVIEW copy was produced in Taiwan and it is the worst quality DVD I now own. I would be embarrassed to loan it to anyone.

This British film version of the Lewis Carroll classic "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" is without a doubt the most faithful adaption to date! (except for the addition of the Looking-Glass twins, Tweedle Dee and Dum.). A surperb cast, lead by the talented Fiona Fullerton, who makes a splendid Alice, is supported by some of Britain's finest actors as the inhabitants of Wonderland; Sir Ralph Richardson as the hookah-smoking Caterpillar, Michael Crawford as the ever-tardy White Rabbit, Dame Flora Robson as the head-hunting Queen of Hearts and Peter Sellers and Dudley Moore as the mad March Hare and his sleepy sidekick, the Doormouse. The American popularity of he last two mentioned actors is why the film was shown overseas here in the United States. Miss Fullerton may seem a bit too old for the title role, but I don't think a child actress would had enough scope to play Alice so well. (If you don't think so, imaging if Sherley Temple won the role of Dorothy in "The Wizard of Oz". YIKES! ), but I digress. The musical score is beautifully haunting and so is the final song "The Me I Never Knew". This song and "Curiouser And Curiouser" are the only two songs that really stand out. Most of the other songs are corny little ditties with no sense of what the characters are thinking or feeling. The sets look like cardboard cut outs at times and the fast speed photography during the Lobster Quadrille and quick cut shots at the mad tea-party look campy and thus the overall British feel of the movie is lost. Despite all my negative insights, I found this film version of "Alice" filled with the wonderful, whimsical flavor that only Lewis Carroll himself could have provided. A must see for all fans of the famous book.

When I first saw this film as a child, I was captivated. Even as an adult I'm still enchanted by the whimsy of Wonderland. This film isn't like the more commercially successful versions, but it's worth adding to your personal library!
Fiona Fullerton is a charming Alice. Most other versions of the film shows us a very young Alice. I don't think any other Alice could have portrayed the character quite like Fiona. She's a bit older, but possesses the ability to act the part very well, something I don't think many younger actors could do.
The musical sequences are at times breif and essential to the story. The film is rather old, and transfer to video was rather poor. There's some very conspicuous flaws in the video, but despite this, the story is just as wonderful and magical as ever. For a low budget and a superb cast (Dudley Moore, Ralph Richardson, et al) "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" is a delight.
The sets were not extravagant, but very well done. Some of the backgrounds reminded me very much of "The Wizard of Oz".
I'm glad to have found this version of "Alice in Wonderland" since it was the first I'd ever seen. It will always be the version I compare others to, and despite the fact that this isn't a more commercially successful film, it won me over heart and soul.

Format: DVD
ALICE'S ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND is a lush and lavish musical version of Lewis Carroll's book, with a haunting score by John Barry. The cast reads like a Who's Who of British acting talent.

Alice herself is played by a teenage Fiona Fullerton, a charming musical theatre performer, who gives the role a spirit and wonderment which is perfect for the character. Michael Crawford plays the White Rabbit, with other key roles filled by Sir Robert Helpmann as the Mad Hatter, Peter Sellers as the March Hare, Dudley Moore as the Dormouse and Dame Flora Robson as the Queen of Hearts.

The score is quite haunting, in particular Alice's "Curioser and Curioser" and the final number "The Me I Never Knew". John Barry's score has become quite admired over the years, and copies of the original soundtrack LP have been known to fetch large sums of money.

If you can, try to see the film in it's original Todd-AO/Super Panavision 70 proportions. My DVD is presented in the original aspect ratio (though lacks 16:9 enhancement).

Highly-recommended.

Got the UK version a couple weeks ago. The extras are nice; there's a 20 page booklet in the DVD case (which may possibly be included in both SE and regular disc-only version - but not positive) that covers production, the history of film adaptations, and a copy... Read More
