Made-for-TV BBC adaptation of Lewis Carroll’s classic children’s book from film-maker Jonathan Miller. Young girl Alice (Anne-Marie Mallik) falls down the White Rabbit (Wilfrid Brambell)’s hole into a bizarre world full of eccentric characters such as the Caterpillar (Michael Redgrave), the Mock Turtle (John Gielgud) and the Mad Hatter (Peter Cook). Peter Sellers also stars as the King of Hearts. The film features music by Ravi Shankar.
Jonathan Miller exhumes a Wonderland without magical beings: the White Rabbit is just a stuffed shirt in a waistcoat, the Cheshire Cat is an ordinary house cat, the drowned animals by the pool of tears are a soggy band of Victorian citizens. By unmasking the story’s anthropomorphic animals, he de-cutifies the fairy tale; the result is, unexpectedly, one of the weirdest and most dreamlike Alices ever put on film.
