Alice in Wonderland is a 1933 ensemble film produced by Paramount Pictures. It is mostly live-action, except for The Walrus and The Carpenter, which was animated by Leon Schlesinger Productions.
Stars featured in the film included Charlotte Henry as Alice, W. C. Fields as Humpty Dumpty, Edna May Oliver as the Red Queen, Cary Grant as the Mock Turtle, Gary Cooper as the White Knight, Edward Everett Horton as The Mad Hatter, Charles Ruggles as The March Hare, and Baby LeRoy as The Joker.
This version was directed by Norman Z. McLeod from a screenplay by Joseph L. Mankiewicz, based on Lewis Carroll's books Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass. It also drew heavily from Eva LeGallienne and Florida Friebus's then-recent stage adaptation.
The film is occasionally broadcast on cable television channels such as Turner Classic Movies. The original running time was 90 min., but when EMKA bought the television rights in the late 1950s, it was cut to 77 minutes. Universal Studios released the cut version to DVD on March 2, 2010, marking the film's first home video release.
