Alice in Paradise Motion Picture
On the financial institution of a serene river, Alice (Kathryn Beaumont) expands bored paying attention to her older sister reviewed aloud from a history book regarding William I of England. Alice’s sis reprimands her, carefully but strongly, for her lack of interest. Then, Alice imagine living in a globe of nonsense (“A World of My Own”, as she clarifies and also sings to her little kitty Dinah). Simply after that, Alice sees a White Bunny (Costs Thompson) wearing a waistcoat as well as lugging a large pocket watch. She and Dinah follow him into a rabbit hole, where Alice unexpectedly falls down right into a deep well, leaving Dinah behind.
Near the bottom, she adheres to the Bunny right into a large chamber-like hall, but he leaves via a tiny door. The Doorknob (Joseph Kearns) suggests Alice consume from a container noted “Drink me.” The contents shrink her to a small portion of her initial dimension. The door is secured, and also the trick appears on the table, which she can not get to. The Doorknob guides her to a cookie noted “Eat me.” The cookie makes her expand so big that her head hits the ceiling. She begins to sob; her enormous splits flooding the space.
The Doorknob points out that the “Drink me” container still has some fluid left within, so she completes the last drop. She ends up being so tiny that she goes down inside the bottle. Both she and the bottle drift with the doorknob’s keyhole mouth and out to a sea made from Alice’s tears. On shore, a Dodo bird (Thompson) leads a group of pets in an useless caucus-race to obtain completely dry. Alice fulfills Tweedledum as well as Tweedledee (J. Pat O’Malley), two fat twin bros who state “The Walrus as well as the Woodworker”, in a sequence that initially appeared in With the Looking-Glass.
After creeping away to the White Bunny’s residence, Alice goes to initial incorrect by him for his maidservant; and then expands to such a plus size that she obtains stuck inside your home. The Dodo tries to aid by very first sending Bill the Reptile Chimney Sweeper down the chimney, and then setting your house ablaze; but Alice eats a carrot from the garden and reduces to three inches. Alice chases after the Bunny again, and also in one more instance of a vignette obtained from With the Looking-Glass, she locates herself in a yard of talking flowers and also strange insects.
The flowers in the beginning befriend Alice, yet after that blunder her for a weed and madly drive her out of the flowerbed prior to she can “take root.” She infuriates a hookah-smoking caterpillar that develops into a butterfly, though not before offering her puzzling suggestions regarding the mushroom she is resting on. Alice breaks off two pieces and munches them at the same time (initial expanding very large and accidentally exacerbating a Nesting Mom Bird (Queenie Leonard), who accuses Alice of being a “serpent”, after that reducing really tiny). Lastly Alice takes care of to recover herself to her typical dimension and shops the pieces in her apron pockets.
Alice obtains mystical directions from the Cheshire Cat (Sterling Holloway), an eerily grinning feline that can vanish and come back at will, which lead her to the garden of the March Hare (Jerry Colonna), who is commemorating his “unbirthday” with the Mad Hatter (Ed Wynn) and also the Dormouse. when the white bunny arrives, the mad hatter and also the march hare error the clock for being “precisely 2 days sluggish!” and they attempt to repair it with butter, tea, sugar with 2 spoons, jam, and a lemon leaving out the mustard, however the watch goes nuts as well as the march hare calls the watch a “mad watch! and also smashes it with a mallet, much to the white rabbit’s unhappiness. the mad hatter and also the march hare toss the white bunny out as well as Alice, growing tired of their disrespect as well as wackiness, determines to go home, deserting her search of the White Bunny. She is lost and despondent amongst the unusual animals (See Below) of the Tulgey Timber, until the Cheshire Cat reappears and shows her a short-cut out of the forest and into the yard of the Queen (and also King) of Hearts. In the hedge maze yard, Alice fulfills some playing cards repainting white roses red.
The White Rabbit heralds the arrival of the bellicose Queen of Hearts (Verna Felton), the petite King (Dink Trout), as well as a card army. She welcomes Alice to an odd video game of croquet using flamingos as mallets, hedgehogs as balls, and card soldiers as arches. The Cheshire Feline plays a prank on the Queen, that blames Alice and orders her implementation. The King suggests that Alice is to be prosecuted instead. At the test, Alice’s nonsensical acquaintances (the Mad Hatter, the March Hare, and also the Dormouse) are of no assistance to her.
The Cheshire Pet cat shows up and also causes enough interruption to permit Alice to consume the continuing to be sections of mushroom, triggering her to grow to enormous percentages. At this dimension, Alice reprimands the horrified Queen for her rash behavior, but then starts shrinking back to her typical dimension all too soon. At the Queen’s command of “Off with her head!” all the insane citizens of Heaven offer chase. Returning to the Doorknob, Alice is told by him that he is still locked, but that she is already beyond.
Looking through the keyhole, Alice sees herself asleep in the park. As the crowd draws nearer, she calls, “Alice, awaken!” to her resting self until she progressively awakens from the dream to the audio of her sibling’s voice. Both of them return home for teatime; while Alice muses on her journeys in Wonderland as well as understands that probably logic and reason exist for a purpose, her sibling recognizes affectionately that Alice is still young, yet will grow-up in time.
