By Jennifer Garlen on Dec 3, 2013 From Virtual Virago

Quotes from

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

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]

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.

Facts about

The film was one of several theatrical films based on literary classics which were released to US schools in the 1950s and '60s, for showing to children. The others included Heidi and The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. They were all released to the schools in heavily cut versions that had a running time of no more than forty-five minutes.
Never legally released on any home video format until the 2010 DVD edition, which was prompted by the popularity of Alice in Wonderland in cinemas. The more famous Alice in Wonderland, already available in several home editions, had an "un-anniversary" DVD repackaging at the same time.
The Mock Turtle, who says he is what mock turtle soup is made from, is a cow in a turtle's shell. This was because mock turtle soup (for those who couldn't afford to have real turtle soup) was generally made from veal.
