Alice in Wonderland (1951, USA) C-72m. *** D: Claude Geronimi, Wilfred Jackson, Hamilton Luske. Starring (the voices of) Kathryn Beaumont, Ed Wynn, Richard Haydn, Sterling Holloway, Good Lewis Carroll adaptation from Disney, not among their masterpieces but well-worth watching. Young girl Alice is bored with her life, then follows a rabbit (with a watch, no less) into a rabbithole and stumbles (or falls) into a wondrous land which seems toh ave its own laws. Rather episodic, and so fast-paced that it becomes annoying at times, but well-animated, with many delightful sequences. Legend has it that Aldous Huxley contributed to the script.
