Contest: Alice in Wonderland

posted by Nell Minow

I am overjoyed to have two copies of one of my very favorite Disney classics to give away. This is the Blu-Ray/DVD 60th anniversary edition of “Alice in Wonderland.” I have loved this film since we watched it at my own 6th birthday party. Of all the many versions of the book by Lewis Carroll, this is my favorite. Alice took Walt Disney full circle, as he began his career with films that featured a real-life girl playing Alice in an animated wonderland.
In addition to the movie with its memorable score (“A Very Merry Un-Birthday,” and “I Give Myself Very Good Advice”), the package includes some behind the scenes footage hosted by Kathryn Beaumont, who provided the voice for Alice (and for Wendy in “Peter Pan”), and some deleted scenes — featuring a newly discovered Cheshire Cat song called “I’m Odd” and the “Pig and Pepper” episode. There’s also a Mickey Mouse through the looking glass cartoon, for the first time in Hi-Def.

    Yah my favorite character is Alice. Because as a young girl she lives out all my child imaginations & roll playing I did when I was a child. Almost everything a young girl does when they are growing up. I even had a woodland cottage that I made from all the trees & nature things. I would sit there & imagine & play out many of the same like scenes in my cottage. Sometimes a few animals would come around & be my guests even though I had to be very quite. It was a very special spot that I would go to for some quiet time. It was a great time in my life & my friends who joined me at my cottage. One I’ll never forget!
