A Sunday night prime-time television event - "Alice Through the Looking Glass" - was a NBC Color Television Special Telecast Presentation, sponsored by The Gas Company, on November 6th, 1966. An adaptation of Lewis Carroll's second sequel novel "Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There" (1871), initially conceived to follow the pattern of NBC's 1950's 90 minute color television anthology television event series - "Producers' Showcase" - presented once a month, every fourth Monday night. The musical fantasy special was in the spirit of NBC's 1955 anthology "Producers' Showcase" series, the Broadway 1955 telecast of Mary Martin's musical stage hit "Peter Pan," again, in 1960, a remounted "Producers' Showcase" presentation special, the original Mary Martin Broadway musical cast in "Peter Pan." The NBC television special concept for "Alice Through the Looking Glass" was conceived as a television scenario song and dance adaptation of the original Lewis Carroll novel turned into a fantasy immersion musical event (variety) featuring Hollywood film and television personalities. The television property was offered to and sponsored by The Gas Company and by the NBC Television Network. The original Lewis Carroll story-book was adapted into a musical-dance-play-script, written by Albert Simmons. Music material was composed by Moose Charlap with lyrics by Elsie Simmons, Albert Simmons wife. Musical arrangements and orchestrations were by Don Costa. Harper MacKay conducted the NBC studio orchestra. Produced by Bob Wynn and Alan Handley; Executive Producer E. Jay Krause. Directed by Alan Handley; Choreography by Tony Charmoli; Production Designed by E. Jay Krause; Costumes designed Ray Aghayan and Bob Mackie. See more »
While Alice is telling Lester how different things are, the jester moves into another shot and magically disappears. In the very next shot, however, he can be seen quickly leaving the stage on foot. See more »
A great movie if you're a lover of Musical and fantasy film. It's to spend a good time on a rainy Sunday afternoon, eating popcorn and drinking a cup of hot chocolate.
In first place: Excuse me for my English; I don't speak this language.
While it is true that this film isn't a true reflection and exact of thread of events that get passed in measure that one go reading Lewis Carrll's book (as this film is an adaptation in form Musical) the film itself shows us another different perspective of this Story; but without distorting the essence present in Carroll's original version.
The film not only added some scenes or situations that are not originally present in the book; but also added brand new characters as is the case of "Lester", the Royal Jester, that within the plot of the film is a character who serves to be as an Alicia's assistant that appearing only when she needs him, exactly so, like what he is: A buffoon, Lester becomes for Alicia, something like the Joker that she needs when she is in trouble, he is the Ace that she has hided up her sleeve. The musical numbers in the film are also very nice and funny. In my opinion I think that this film should see any children aged 7 to 12 years old, which is the stage of their lives when they are a mix of children and teenagers.
We remember that the Alicia is in the book "Through the Looking Glass" she is much less child-girl, that another Alicia what we read in the book of "Wonderland", when Lewis Carroll wrote "Through the Looking Glass" he knows that true Alice soon be a woman and she will make her life as a woman married to another man, and most likely, what not be him.-
