Early in his career, between 1923 and 1927, Walt Disney produced the ‘Alice’ series of cartoons. These delightful cartoons owed their success to both a clever use of special effects – cartoon characters interacting with a live young girl cleverly superimposed within the frame – and breezy humor. Sound tracks are from the sound reissue. 1925-27|92 min|B&W|1.33:1|NR
