Alice in Wonderland ★★★ 1951 (G)

Classic Disney dream version of Lewis Carroll's famous children's story about a girl who falls down a rabbit hole into a magical world populated by strange creatures. Beautifully animated with some startling images, but served with a strange dispassion warmed by a fine batch of songs. Wynn's Mad Hatter and Holloway's Cheshire Cat are among the treats in store. ♫Alice in Wonderland; I'm Late; A Very Merry Un-Birthday. 75m/C VHS, DVD. D: Hamilton Luske, Wilfred Jackson, Clyde Geronimi; V: Kathryn Beaumont, Ed Wynn, Sterling Holloway, Jerry Colonna.
