Alice's Adventures in Wonderland cast - 1972

Soundtrack


Alice's Adventures in Wonderland soundtrack - 1972
  John Barry and Don Black's musical score is something like an operetta, with Alice and friends incessantly bursting into song even between the actual musical numbers. This bizarre decision irritated many viewers, but overall, the music was well-received and even described as "bewitching".

  An original soundtrack album was released on vinyl (and 8-track tape) by Warner Bros. Records, featuring the tracks:

Side One

Overture
Curiouser and Curiouser - Fiona Fullerton
You've Gotta Know When to Stop - Davy Kaye
The Royal Procession
The Last Word is Mine - Michael Crawford and Fiona Fullerton
Dum and Dee Dance, Nursery Rhyme - Fiona Fullerton The Pun Song - Robert Helpmann, Peter Sellers, Dudley Moore
I've Never Been This Far Before

Side Two

Curiouser and Curiouser
I've Never Been This Far Before - Fiona Fullerton
Medley: Off with Their Heads, The Croquet Game, The Moral Song - Flora Robson, Peter Bull
The Me I Never Knew
The Lobster Quadrille
Will You Walk a Little Faster? - Michael Hordern, Spike Milligan
They Told Me - Michael Crawford
The Me I Never Knew - Fiona Fullerton

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland soundtrack - 1972
  In 2005, Film Score Monthly reissued the Warner Bros. album, remastered from the original studio tapes, on a special John Barry CD that also includes his score for Petulia (1968).

  The CD is available for purchase directly from the distributor, Screen Archives Entertainment, and can also be found on eBay.

  The film has been released many times on videocassette and DVD in various countries and languages, but most frequently in the USA, where it is apparently considered a public domain property. Almost all of these editions present a fuzzy "pan and scan" version of the film, which crops off half of the picture.

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland - 1972 DVD
  More recently in the UK, the film has reappeared in its original, widescreen aspect ratio, broadcast on Channel 5 and released on DVD by Oracle Home Entertainment (aka Eureka Entertainment). However, while the picture is complete, the quality is poor (arguably worse than the "pan and scan" videocassette editions), making the film look very dull. Surely a double BAFTA winner deserves better treatment, but for now a restoration looks unlikely.

Memorabilia


Franco-Belgian comic album

Franco-Belgian comic album

  This French-language album comprises comic strips first published in Belgian newspaper Le Soir, as a promotion for the film. The comic was designed by Greg, with artwork and lettering by Dany, Dupa, Turk and De Groot, and closely resembles the costume and set designs of the film.

  The hardback book was originally released by Lombard in March 1973, and then reissued by MC Productions in 1987. Both editions are often listed for sale on eBay.
