One More Wonderland
I am pointing to this film because it is new to me, and I enjoyed it immensely. I like this still frame from the film because it gives an idea for displaying an Alice doll in a doll-house, but the doll-house does not have to be to scale, right? Alice shrinks and grows throughout the story. Delightful.
Out of all the Alice In Wonderland's I've recently watched, this one, from 1966, directed by Jonathan Miller, and originally aired on the BBC, is perhaps the best for seeing Victorian costumes. I especially enjoyed the performance by Peter Cook, as The Mad Hatter, and the Tea Party is one of my very favorite scenes. I don't know, but I think that you must be truly obsessed with Alice In Wonderland to appreciate this version of Lewis Carroll's story. None of the actors are dressed as animal characters, but are dressed in Victorian costumes. I found it on YouTube (71 mins.).
