Storyline

Classic tale of a girl named Alice who follows a white rabbit down a hole into Wonderland, where she can change sizes by eating and drinking and animals talk. After escaping the disturbing Queen of Hearts, she finds that she has ended up on the other side of the looking glass in Looking Glass Land and that there is a mind-created Jabberwocky after her. With the advice of a wise owl and royal chess pieces on her mind, she ventures home, vowing to grow up in this two-part movie which remains most faithful to the original stories written by Lewis Carroll.

Trivia

The twins Tweedledee and Tweedledum were cast with Eydie Gormé and Steven Lawrence, who were performing at Harrah's Reno Casino. The duo flew, after their midnight casino engagement, to Los Angeles, reporting at 6:00 a.m. to the MGM Studio rehearsal room, joining the choreographer to learn their dance routine. Dressed in identical matching "mouse grey" colored top and bottom velour fabric sweats and sport sneakers, Gorme and Lawrence, their identical natural short close clip naturally curly salt and pepper grey hair, actually looked like a pair of twins; the same height, and body shapes in their velour grey sweats! Entering the stage set area where a forest dell had been set up, Gorme and Lawrence examined their performance area. Irwin Allen was standing with the Production Designer in conversation, as he observed his stars entering their production area. As Gorme and Lawrence walked over to greet Allen, he hastily asked, "Which one is Eydie and which one is Steve?" He was told, "Eydie is on your left, and Steve is on your right". See more »

Goofs

The ending credits of both parts say (in order of appearance). In the part II Looking Glassland half, the movie starts with the Jabberwocky in Alice's house going after Alice, but the credits have the Jabberwocky placed after Humpty Dumpty. The Jabberwocky should of been the first in the credits as long as it's an order of appearance format. See more »

Quotes

[the disembodied head of the Cheshire Cat appears]
Alice: It's the Cheshire Cat! Oh, hello, Cheshire Cat.
Cheshire Cat: Hello. How do you like the Queen?
Alice: Not at all. I don't like that of losing my head. Would you?
Cheshire Cat: I could hardly afford that.

Twinkle, Twinkle Little Bat, How I wonder where you're at...
20 December 2003 | by (Oshawa, On, Canada) – See all my reviews

Wonderfully amazing portrayal of Alice in Wonderland. The cast was superb and the story telling was excellent. Of course it doesn't hurt that the Mock Turtle is played by none other than Ringo Starr. The only copy of this film that I have owned until recently was a tapped off T.V. version that was jumpy and horribly, tapped. But I can guarantee you that it has been watched countless times none the less. This film is great for all ages and is good fun for the whole family. Children of all ages will delight in this fun-filled adventure, from the crying baby that turns into a pig to Sally Struthers playing a loud mouthed Flower, it can't get any better. The First half of the 3 hour plus film, is the best part, but the giant chess board and underlying story in the second half is just as delightful. This film is sure to become a classic of my generation.
