Alice's Adventures in Wonderland on YouTube

Current Song: The Last Word is Mine from Alice's Adventures in Wonderland

I like Alice's Adventures in Wonderland quite a bit. You might already know this, since I often bring it up in conversation, whether it be to reference it in relation to other novels or to discuss the book itself - or to sing the praises of my favorite film adaptation of the book, aka the 1972 British live-action musical Alice's Adventures in Wonderland starring Fiona Fullerton as Alice, adapted and directed by William Sterling, with music by John Barry and lyrics by Don Black based on those by Lewis Carroll.

...and yes, I can (and do) say all of that in one breath.

Someone uploaded the film in seventeen parts on YouTube. Thank you! I have arranged those seventeen parts in order (plus some other Alice-related videos) so you may now watch the movie simply by clicking below:



The movie is available on DVD. The DVD is, of course, better quality than YouTube. Get it. Watch it.

I myself own two copies of the DVD. The soundtrack is available on CD, yet I do not own it because it is packaged with the soundtrack for Petulia, also scored by John Barry, and I just want the Alice soundtrack.

Now I am cracking up, because a Peter Sellers movie is coming on television right as I type this, and I just quoted him as the March Hare in my previous post.

I bought the dvd for 1.00 at WalMart! Well worth it. I also have the scary puppet version by a Swedish filmmaker whose name escapes me.

Nice price!

Is it Jan Svankmajer? (I looked up the spelling.) I haven't seen that version yet, but I know those who have and enjoyed it.

That was quite the star-studded event!

*grinning at your icon* I once made Kelly watch the 1972 version.

I have the vocal selections for the 1985 version too! I found it at a used bookstore and grabbed it even though I wasn't a huge fan of that adaptation because I knew if I didn't get it right then, I'd never find it again!
