Alice Solves the Puzzle (1925)

*** (out of 4)

Alice and her best friend, the cat, are at the beach playing with a crossword puzzle when Bootleg Pete shows up to try and steal it. Alice seems to have been forgotten over the decades but she was Walt Disney's first star and this early animated short is certainly a charming one. I think the most interesting thing when viewing this today is just seeing how wonderful the mix of live action and animation was done. There's a scene where the cat brings up a cart like thing for the live version of Alice to get into it and just seeing how this was done will put a smile on your face. The animation itself certainly isn't what we've come to expect but we've got to remember that this is Disney at the very start. All three characters are quite memorable and make this an entertaining film.
