This television special of ALICE THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS, originally telecast in 1966, is a very delightful musical that is a joy to watch.
Judi Rolin plays Alice. She has a remarkable singing voice and dances wonderfully, but her acting style is somewhat lacking, sometimes cloying and a little over-the-top.
Roy Castle, as Lester the Jester, has a ball, and also sings and dances wonderfully. There is Tom and Dick Smothers as Tweedledum and Tweedledee, and Jack Palance as the Jabberwock.
In featured roles are Agnes Moorehead and Robert Coote as the Red Queen and King, and Nanette Fabray and Ricardo Montalban as the White Queen and King.
There's also the fabulous Iris Adrian as Tiger Lilly, Jackie Joseph as Daisy, Richard Denning as Father and Jimmy Durante as Humpty Dumpty.
The fantastic songs are by Moose Charlap ("Peter Pan") and Elsie Simmons, and the highly imaginative costumes are by Bob Mackie.
The stunning television presentation is a must for all Alice and musical fans!
