Prod. 2069 (Alice) - Seq. 11.0 - Trial (I)

Directed by Wilfred Jackson assisted by Mike (Holoboff), layout by MacLaren Stewart. Animation by Don Lusk, Milt Kahl (Alice), Frank Thomas (Queen), Ollie Johnston, Hal King (King), Woolie Reitherman, Marvin Woodward (Rabbit), George Kreisl (Jurors), Cliff Nordberg (March Hare & cards), George Rowley and Judge Whitaker (cards).
This draft dated 2/28/51...
129130131132
133134135
Details: the "Mad Hatter lands with Ed Wynn laugh..."(sc.60) and
Hal King got to do the King, in itself worth a giggle...
Did everybody survive Christmas ok? I think I have.

I am surprised by the lack of comments: here is the complete draft of Alice, two more posts left, and a total of 18 comments including my responses. This does not make for a good dialogue, folks!

Hans-

Your page 134 of the Trial is linking to a page from the Croquet Game, Seq. 10.0, Scenes 454-462.

I thought you might like to know.

Thank you for your posts of the Alice drafts.

Hi Hans,
I think there's an error here. Page 134 enlarges to be the same as page 126.

A recent lunch with Mark Mayerson prompted a conversation about these sheets. A although it's probably unfair of me to talk for Mark, it's probably accurate to say that neither of us is really overwhelmed by this feature, as a whole.

Mark loves the Mad Hatter sequence, and I love many very short bits such as the sequence wherein Alice, in the real world, lies among the flowers or the Cheshire cat conversations.
I'm probably more intrigued by the staging than I am in love with the animation. I do think most of the staging in this film, as a whole, is extraordinary.

I have been closely watching Hal Ambro's scenes, lately. It's interesting that he only seems to have had Alice scenes in this film. Oftentimes, they're few and far apart from each other chronologically. I'm trying to work out some ideas I have about his animation, and these sheets have been a goldmine for me in this regard. Thanks many for sharing them.

Thanks for letting me know, Brian and Mike - I fixed the link.

Mike, it is not my favorite either, but I find it is certainly important to know who did what.

One of my very favorite Alice "items" is the Camerata LP, as it has some of the most wonderful arrangements on record. But that is hardly the movie...

Boy, I love that record as well! Some of those Disney records were real treasures.
