Alice in Wonderland Movie Madness
September 18, 2021 , 7:30 pm
7:30 PM Eastern/4:30 PM Pacific Zoom Meeting We all have our favorite Alice film adaptations. This is almost certainly not one of them.
Have a blast with your fellow LCSNA members and friends watching a most curious take on the tale you all know and love, Alice in Wonderland (1931). You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll marvel at Alice’s platinum wig and garish makeup. Not to mention the unexpected plot twists! In the words of renowned film historian David Schaefer:
“The first full-length ‘articulate’ Alice in Wonderland was filmed in Fort Lee, New Jersey (the former capital of silent films) in 1931. The actors are not well known, and the sound techniques are abysmal. Added to these troubles, the rabbit proclaims his love for the duchess and confesses that he stole the tarts for her!”
This event will be a Zoom meeting, unlike our typical Zoom Webinars. Your host Heather will wield the all-powerful Mute All button while the movie plays. (Attendees will be able to make pithy comments in the written Chat, of course.) When the movie is over and White Rabbit and the Duchess presumably ride off into the sunset together, everyone is welcome to Unmute and remain for a post-screening social hour.
