Alice through the Looking Glass

Overview

No TV or movie producer has yet to resist the temptation of turning Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass into an all-star musical.

Overview

No TV or movie producer has yet to resist the temptation of turning Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass into an all-star musical. Certainly the folks at ABC were unable to resist turning out the 1966 taped TV special Alice Through the Looking Glass, but the end result was so pleasing that we can forgive the network for succumbing to temptation. Newcomer Judy Rolin plays Alice, who passes through the mirror, undergoes numerous fantastic adventures with a variety of eccentric characters, and is finally crowned Queen of Wonderland. The stellar guest cast includes Ricardo Montalban, Nanette Fabray, Robert Coote and Agnes Moorehead. Best bits: Jimmy Durante as Humpty Dumpty, Tom and Dick Smothers as Tweedledum and Tweedledee, and Jack Palance as the Jabberwocky!

    A True Classic Returns!

    A lost classic of Tv family programming returns from its own wonderland of yesterday! This spectacular event is one that I remember seeing as a kid during certain holidays.

    Costume designer Bob Mackie and company brought flair to the unigue line of costumes of its Wonderland cast.

    And the cast ensemble is first class! Coote, Moorehead, Fabray, Montalban, Palance, and others are delightful as the Lewis Carroll characters.

    A genius of a production where imagination, music and color capture the attention of people all ages.


    Three cheers for Alice's return!
