3.0 out of 5 stars MR Belverdear 10 Oct 2009
Although made around 1972, what this film lacks in special effects, makes up with it's great performances by an all star cast of the 70's. Watch out for a young Dennis Waterman painting roses red.In this film there are some great cameos from Peter Sellers, Dudley Moore and Spike Milligan.The scenes when Fiona Fullerton shrink and Grow are priceless and ground breaking for the time. Special effects make-up was quite good too. This feature also has some eye catching visuals and a nice musical score.Would be nice to see this piece of archive restored to it's former glory.Shot in widescreen 2.35:1 ratio.Although the film effects look primitive compared to now, young kids will love it.Strictly for Alice in Wonderland fans and nostalgia addicts. Simply a piece of wonderment from a bigone era!

1.0 out of 5 stars Great film ruined by careless transfer to DVD 19 Jan 2004
So, 'Alice’s Adventures In Wonderland’ has been released on DVD. That's the good news. The bad news is that the print is so bad, I’ve got a ten-year old video taped from TV with a faulty aerial in better shape! So, only get this if you are desperate (it is cheap) and even then think twice and do without it.
The company concerned is Platinum Disc Corporation of La Crosse, WI, USA, and may God have mercy on them for having the nerve to put this out for public consumption. In fact, I can scarely believe this release is legal.
It's pan and scan, unsurprisingly, and appears to be region free. Pity the whole thing wasn't! It's such a shame that it's not a decent transfer as it's an excellent film. In fact, I was quite surprised to find so much music not on the original Warner Brothers LP. This is definitely a candidate for some enterprising company or person to re-record with all the songs and musical bridges intact.
The film itself is very enjoyable with good performances from the entire cast, but special mention for Fiona Fullerton in the title role. She is magnificent, especially considering her limited experience at that stage of her career. One can only hope this film gets a legal release in the UK before too long. In the meantime, don't buy this version - it's a waste of money, even at this price!

5.0 out of 5 stars Alice's Adventures in Wonderland 11 Jan 2010
This is probably the film version that comes closest to Lewis Carroll's original ideas. (It even uses Carroll's original title). Superbly well cast, it remains faithful both to the story line and the songs found in the book. Fiona Fullerton is perhaps a little too grown up for the title role, but is charmingly innocent nevertheless. A star cast provides good support, amid colourful sets and, for the time, good special effects. This is a film for all ages to enjoy time and time again.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Faithful Adaptation 17 Mar 2006
Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures In Wonderland has been adapted to the stage, television and silver screen so many times, its fairly easy to lose count exactly how many versions are actually out there.
This 1972 adaptation is something of an exception. This version vastly sticks closely to the original book though the silly, syrupy songs don't quite blend into Carroll's origanal ethos of the famous story. There were intentionally dark undertones in the book as though you were drawn into a childs nightmare but there has barley been any live-action screen version that has thoroughly captured the true spirit of Wonderland apart from a spooky, modern-day re-telling of the familiar story by Jan Svamkmajer in Alice (1988).

In this version Fiona Fullerton makes a pleasantly bland Alice in a somewhat confectionary telling of the story. The cardboard-like sets seem far more suited for a theatrical production and it loses the feel of its intended effect on a few occasions. On saying that what the film does often encapsulate is a dreamy, hazy-like feel and at times effectivley capturing the origanal vision of Carroll. The film is engaging at the beginning which follows the enchanting scenes of Alice waking up in a giant, story-book garden. Its there where she sees the white rabit (played by Michael Crawford) and follows him into a dark tunnel. Its here where the adventure begins as she falls down a large rabbit hole into the whimisical, topsy-turvy world of Wonderland. These effective sequences work well and the music is masterful and hauntingly atmospheric. However once Alice reaches Wonderland the film is something of a hit and miss affair and at times its pace is a little tedious.

4.0 out of 5 stars One of the better adaptations 7 Nov 2009
This early 70s musical adaptation has one of John Barry's best scores. The songs are great. This stays very faithful to the tone of the book and has many wonderful performances from a great cast. The production design and optical effects are a treat (no crappy CGI, hurray!) and Fiona Fullerton plays Alice's mood swings very nicely. Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Alices Adventures in Wonderland 19 Dec 2009
By A. Rose
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I saw this film on the TV a few weeks ago, and thought it was an ideal stocking filler for my 11 year-old grand daughter. It is very true to the book, which is what I liked about it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Faithful but less than magical 21 Oct 2009
By Trevor Willsmer HALL OF FAME TOP 100 REVIEWER
The star-studded 1972 live-action musical version of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland isn't quite the catastrophe it's widely remembered as, but it's a long way from being successful. Despite including Tweedle Dum and Tweedle Dee from Alice Through the Looking Glass it's a fairly faithful adaptation, but the whimsy, surrealism and charm is rarely there. The idea seems to be to create a British Wizard of Oz but at times it feels more like Tales of Beatrix Potter with less dancing and worse costumes. The songs are pretty unmemorable and lifeless affairs, with John Barry contributing a rather monothematic score that at times seems at odds with the visuals, while the choreography occasionally seems to have little to do with either the music or the scene itself. With his penchant for bizarre lyrics, Don Black would seem the ideal lyricist, but it's only when Lewis Carroll's original verse is set to music in the Mock Turtle's song that the numbers hit their target.

Fiona Fullerton makes a rather beautiful but not terribly likeable Alice while the rest of the cast is a mixture of the good (Michael Crawford as the White Rabbit, Robert Helpmann as the Mad Hatter, Peter Sellers as the March Hare, Ralph Richardson as the Caterpillar, Dudley Moore as the Dormouse, Peter Bull as the Duchess), the bad (Rodney Bewes as the Knave of Hearts) and the indifferent (Flora Robson as the Queen of Hearts, Michael Hordern as the Mock Turtle, Roy Kinnear as the Cheshire Cat, Davy Kaye as the Mouse) while Michael Jayston has little to do as Lewis Carroll in the framing sequence and Hywell Bennett even less, being relegated to rowing duties.
