    Description

    Alice in Wonderland (Paramount, 1933). Half Sheet (22" X 28").
    Paramount threw all that it could into this epic Pre-code adaptation of Lewis Carroll's curious children's tales. They brought in the screenwriting talents of the great Joseph L. Mankiewicz and William Cameron Menzies, and spent five months cycling through 7,000 suitors for the role of Alice, which included a young Betty Grable, Ida Lupino, and Paulette Goddard among the throngs. Charlotte Henry won the part, of course, and played opposite everyone from Gary Cooper to Louise Fazenda, but still the studio lost its shirt at the box office - perhaps having something to do with the fact that the principal stars were basically unrecognizable under the fantastic makeup and costuming. Maybe if the movie itself had been as colorful as its astonishing original half sheet, it would have been more successful! Heritage is absolutely privileged to present this piece. We have never seen this half sheet previously, as almost all of the larger paper for this title is non-existent. Alice, the White Rabbit, the Cheshire Cat, Tweedles Dee and Dum, and the whole motley crew are present and accounted for. Professional restoration has addressed some creases and surface scuffs in the interior, in addition to a half-inch trim in the top border, and a one-inch trim (up to the edge of the image area) in the side and bottom borders. The borders and white background have been airbrushed, and the credits and parts of the image area have receive some color enhancement. Very Good on Paper.
