We're doing something a little different this bright and shiny Sunday morn. Video Sunday. Basically, I pick a topic and see what kind of videos I can find when I troll through YouTube willy-nilly.
Today's topic: ALICE IN WONDERLAND
To begin with, here's a silent film circa 1903. As you can see, it's fairly self-explanatory.
We follow this up with a 1933 film. And who, might you ask, is the man playing the White Knight in this scene? Might it be the star of High Noon, one Mister Gary Cooper? It just might. I recently saw Gary in the bizarre film Ball of Fire (an adaptation of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs), so I felt this change of venue especially weird.
I've saved the best for last. It's 1983. You are producing a PBS special production of Alice. You cast an oddly old woman in the lead. So who do you give a starring song to? Would you believe a young Nathan Lane?
UPDATE: For an intense encapsulation of fantastic online video clips of Alice, please high-tail it over to Educating Alice where Monica Edinger has compiled a fantastic selection of goodies.
