Alice in Wonderland

This past Spring I enlightened the boys with all the different versions of Alice in Wonderland... I've been wanting to do an entry on all the different versions but keep getting distracted... Hopefully I can remember which one was which...


1951~The Disney Classic~5 out of 5 stars...


1966~Agnes Moorehead, Jimmy Durante, Smother Brothers, Jack Palance and Ricardo Montalban... Wonderful stage props/scenery and classic actors... However it had a laugh track that was very annoying... 3 out of 5 stars...


1972~Peter Sellers and Dudley Moore... A musical version... The boys didn't like the musical versions... 3 out of 5 stars...


1985~Sammy Davis Jr, Red Buttons, Roddy McDowall, Sally Struthers, Scott Baio, and Ringo Star... Musical Version... I think this was my favorite one, although I liked them all... 4 out of 5 stars...


1999~Creatures brought to life by Jim Henson's Creature Shop... Whoopie Goldberg, Ben Kingsley, Christopher Lloyd, and Martin Short... 3 out of 5 stars...


2009~I liked this twisted modern version of Alice in Wonderland... 4 out of 5 stars...


2010~and I was very pleased with Tim Burton's version and that he stayed true to the story... I think his version of the caterpillar was the best of all the Alice's... 4 out of 5 stars...


Here is me in the fifth grade... We had to dress as a character from our favorite book... I picked Alice in Wonderland...

Happy Journaling...

loved you as Alice, Linda! what a great idea to get all the Alice in Wonderlands and have comparisons between them all with reviews with your kids/you! I didn't realize there were that many out there either. I was just familiar with the Disney animated version and the recent Tim Burton one. I'll have to check out these other ones indeed!

When I went to the latest Alice in Wonderland, I didn't expect to like it much, but I did.

I really like YOUR version of Alice:)
