Walt Disney's thirteenth animated feature film takes us on a journey through the mad world of Wonderland. Mr. Disney had a long standing affection for Lewis Carol's novels and had been envisioning making an Alice in Wonderland film since the early 1930s.Walt shelved a live-action version of the story starring Mary Pickford he'd been working on when Paramount Studios released their own "Alice", but he asked artist David Hall, a Hollywood artist and designer, to create some concepts for an all-animated Alice film. Disney did not return to the Alice project until in late 1940s. After a series of setbacks, he managed to bring Carol's stories to animated life his 1951 adaptation Alice in Wonderland. Alice in Wonderland was not an immediate hit when it was first released. However the film was later rediscovered by the psychedelic generation when it was made available on 16mm for schools. Alice in Wonderland was re-released in theaters in 1974 and 1981 and released on video in 1981 and 1986. Alice in Wonderland (Walt Disney, 1951) was directed by Clyde Geronimi, Hamilton Luske, and Wilfred Jackson. Animators included Eric Larson, Les Clark, Milt Kahl, Oliver Johnston Jr., Marc Davis, Ken O'Brien, Don Luske, Hal Ambro, and Harvey Toombs. Starring: the voices of Kathryn Beaumont (Alice), Verna Felton (Queen of Hearts), Bill Thompson (White Rabbit), Ed Wynn (Mad Hatter), Jerry Colonna (March Hare), and Sterling Holloway (Cheshire Cat). Songs include "All in a Golden Afternoon" and "I'm Late," by Bob Hilliard and Sammy Fain, and "The Unbirthday Song," by Mack David, Al Hoffman, and Jerry Livingston. The 75 minute film was nominated for an Academy Award® for Best Scoring of a Musical Picture.
