Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland
Left alone with a governess one snowy afternoon, Alice (Charlotte Henry, March of the Wooden Soldiers) is supremely bored. She idly starts to wonder what life is like on the other side of the drawing room mirror when she suddenly feels a surge of confidence and climbs upon the mantelpiece to look. She discovers that she can pass through the looking glass and finds herself in a strange room where may things seem to be the exact reverse of what is in the drawing room.
Alice looks out the window and suddenly sees a white rabbit, which she follows to a rabbit hole and falls in. Seeing nobody else there she comes upon a table with a key to a locked door and a bottle that bears the sign -"Drink me". Alice grows to an enormous size once she drinks the contents. Unable to pass into the room beyond the locked door she begins to cry and a cake with the sign- "Eat me" appears. She eats the cakes, which shrinks her to a tiny size, and is immediately swept away in a flood of her tears.
Many more adventures follow and along the way she meets a vast array of unusual characters - Humpty Dumpty (W.C. Fields, The Bank Dick), Mock Turtle (Cary Grant, North By Northwest) The White Knight (Gary Cooper, High Noon) and The Hatter (Edward Everett Horton, Top Hat). In the end she is woken from a dream by a riotous celebration that goes completely haywire after she is crowned queen.
