Alice's Wild West Show (1924)
User ReviewsReview this title
The film begins with Alice and her friends putting on a Wild West show--much like a show the Our Gang kids would do. However, the she is interrupted by some tough kids and all the kids in the show (except Alice) run away in fear. To try to salvage the show, Alice regales the audience with tales of her insane adventures in the West. These adventures of all animated and are pretty silly. One, oddly, is amazingly bloody--with Sheriff Alice accidentally shooting a huge number of innocent bystanders! She also smokes--making it an unusual picture considering modern sensibilities. Still, it is rather charming and fun.
*** 1/2 (out of 4)
Wonderful Disney short has Alice (Virginia Davis from their Alice's Wonderland) putting on a Wild West show only to have the neighborhood bully show up and try to wreck it. The mix of live action and animation here is very well done and highly entertaining especially one scene where Alice's coach is being chased by Indians. A lot of laughs and some nice suspense as well.

Alice finds herself in another adventure after the teacher sits her in the corner where she dreams out a little revenge. Once again the mixture of live action and animation work wonderfully well together in this cute short.
