By Jennifer Garlen on Dec 3, 2013 From Virtual Virago

As a longtime devotee of Lewis Carroll, I'm well aware that Disney's Alice in Wonderland (1951) takes some liberties with its source material, but it remains one of my favorite classic Disney films nonetheless.

Quotes from

Alice: I've often seen a cat without a grin - but a grin without a cat!

March Hare: Have some more tea?
Alice: I haven't had any yet, so I can't take more.
March Hare: You mean you can't take less. It is very easy to take more than nothing.

Alice: How can you go on talking so quietly with your head in a ditch?
White Knight: What does it matter where my body happens to be? My mind goes on working all the same. In fact, I once invented a new pudding during the meat course.
Alice: In time to have it cooked for the next course, hmmm? That was quick work!
White Knight: Well, not the next course. In fact, I don't believe that pudding even was cooked.
Alice: What did you mean it to be made of?
White Knight: Well it began with blotting paper.
Alice: That wouldn't be very nice, I'm afraid.
White Knight: Not very nice alone, but imagine how good it would be mixed with other things such as gunpowder and sealing wax.
[He sighs]

Facts about

Mary Pickford and Walt Disney planned a combination live action and animated feature, but Paramount beat them in securing the rights to the story on 9 May 1933.
Virtually the entire star stable was thrown into this movie because Paramount was trying to keep from going bankrupt and thought that such a star-laden movie could save the studio from failing. It didn't work since most of the stars couldn't be recognized because of their costumes. Instead, two Mae West movies, She Done Him Wrong and I'm No Angel saved the studio from bankruptcy instead.
Many theatrical productions were produced nationwide starting in 1931, anticipating the celebration of Lewis Carroll's 100th birthday in 1932, which helped the box office enormously.
