Quotes:
Alice:How can you go on talking so quietly with your head in a ditch?
White Knight:What does it matter where my body happens to be? My mind goes on working all the same. In fact, I once invented a new pudding during the meat course.
Alice:In time to have it cooked for the next course, hmmm? That was quick work!
White Knight:Well, not the next course. In fact, I don't believe that pudding even was cooked.
Alice:What did you mean it to be made of?
White Knight:Well it began with blotting paper.
Alice:That wouldn't be very nice, I'm afraid.
White Knight:Not very nice alone, but imagine how good it would be mixed with other things such as gunpowder and sealing wax.

An excellent movie, 22 April 2003
Author: JamesBondNow from Virginia Beach, Va.

this 1933 Classic adaptation of Alice In wonderland is without a doubt the best screen version ever. The costumes and sets are magnificent, the casting is excellent, and the special effects are amazing especially for 1933. I'll admit I have a crush on Alice. I watched this movie recently and enjoyed it very much. It is funny to see Cary Grant as the mock turtle and W.C. Feilds as Humpty dumpty. I recommend this movie to anyone who likes movies My rating is 4 stars out of 4 stars.
