Live Action Reference Photo A-SPEC-10 - Alice Jumping
Next from the Key Book set is the photo of Kathy jumping.  My assumption is that this is from the sequence when Alice is entering the Queen’s grounds for the first time through the maze, and hears the Card Painters and jumps up and down to see over the hedge.
I cannot match this to a specific frame of film (mostly because that whole sequence is dominated by the hedge) but as this is a SPEC still it may have been a press still image taken from a different angle, or it could be from another scene entirely.  I do know that this image is also very popular with Disney, both at the time of release and even to this day.



Maybe she’s trying to fly like Wendy? :)

  5. 30 Day Alice Challenge Day 13: Dream Cast

    My (incomplete) dream is as follows: Emma Watson (Alice), David Tennant (Bill the Lizard), Patrick Stewart (White Knight), Ian McKellen (Caterpillar), Angela Lansbury (White Queen), Terry Jones (Mock Turtle), Eric Idle (Griffin), John Cleese, Michael Palin, Leo McKern, Tom Baker (Mad Hatter), Graham Chapman (King of Hearts), Ian Holm (White Rabbit), Peter Sellers (March Hare), Benny Hill (Humpty Dumpty), Elizabeth Taylor (Red Queen).

    I just think Emma Watson would be delightful as Alice!

  6. 30 Day Alice Challenge Day 12: Least favorite adaptation

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x24Dq8wyxv0

    Most of the adaptations I’ve seen of the Alice books range from great to decent, but I’d have to say my least favorite is the Jetlag adaptation. It’s such an ugly and cheap-looking production like something that was hastily put together and released straight to video.

  7. 30 Day Alice Challenge Day 11: Favorite adaptation

    Without a doubt, the 1951 animated film by Walt Disney Productions is my favorite adaptation. The stories of the Alice books are very hard to translate into film, but I think the artists at the studio did an admirable job of bringing it to the screen. I find it interesting how they combined both books into one story. Mary Blair’s artwork gives the world of Wonderland a truly wondrous feel. The voice casting is spot on, and the way they adapted some of the dialogue/wordplay from the book into the script is very clever in my opinion. The Walrus and the Carpenter and the Mad Tea Party scenes in particular always make me laugh.

  8. 30 Day Alice Challenge Day 10: Least favorite song or poem

    "Turtle Soup" is my least favorite poem from the Alice books. Its repetitive nature makes it rather tiresome for me.

  9. 30 Day Alice Challenge Day 9: Favorite song or poem

    "You Are Old, Father William" is my favorite poem by far. The idea of an old man who is able to do so many things that should be improbable for someone of his age is delightfully absurd. And I love how he grows tired of his son’s questions and threatens to kick him downstairs.
