Plot Summary | Plot Synopsis



Did You Know?


Author Albert Simmons digressed from Lewis Carroll's "Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There" adaptation introducing a fantasy fairy tale twist by introducing "three evil legendary children's storybook character witches" into the plot's scenario with Alice's path passage blocked and challenged by the witch's magical straw-broom stick fence barrier on the stone trail elevated pathway. Character actress Mary Esther Denver at age 48 (b:1918-1980; d:62) performed the third evil cackling witch based upon the evil witch from the "Hansel and Gretel" fairy tale. The first "Snow White" with an apple in hand witch was character actress Georgia Simmons at age 82 (b:1884-1980; d:96). The second "Sleeping Beauty" witch was character actress Sara Taft at age 73 (b:1893-1973; d:80). Their scene was performed live with the witch's (actress' in make-up and costume) in an off-stage electronic Chroma-key-blue-screen process, matted into the live performance with Alice standing on the sound-stage's stone path-road-walk-way setting, a four foot high zig-zag run-way-path platform setting, with the scenic painted landscape profile backing background placed in front of the studio's off-white muslin cyclorama.

8 October 2002 | by JTBWRITERSee all my reviews

I searched for years for a copy of this wonderful show, it is just as good as I remembered it! Judi Rolin is a magical Alice-she relates to the residences of Looking Glass Land as if they were everyday people and it really makes the story! (I really wish I knew what happened to her-she should have been a star!) Ricardo Montalban is funny but tender as the really brave White King, while the musical numbers with Agnes Moorhead and Nanette Fabray just "sing". A real treat is a rare American appearance of Roy Lester, whose chemistry with Judi Rolin in both a fantastic acrobatic number and the fight scenes with a hysterical Jack Palance really make this a memorable family show! To those who remember the great shows and films that used to air after the Thanksgiving Parades-this show will bring back such memories (especially Sabastian Cabot hosting "Alice" and singing a beautiful Thanksgiving Hymn)! If you can find a copy-share it with your loved ones!
