(aka "Alice in Wonderland: An X-Rated Musical Fantasy (X-version)" or "Bill Osco's Alice in Wonderland")

 

directed by Bud Townsend
USA 1976

 

Prim librarian Alice (Kristine DeBell, CHEERLEADERS WILD WEEKEND) isn't ready to go all the way with her gas jockey boyfriend William (Ron Nelson). After an argument with him, she comes across a copy of ALICE IN WONDERLAND, which she has never read, and (after a musical number) follows a talking, bipedal White Rabbit (Larry Gelman, CHATTERBOX) through a mirror into a room whose only exit is a tiny door. She drinks from a bottle - helpfully marked "drink me" - and shrinks; however, her clothes do not shrink and she heads off into Wonderland in only a towel. During her various encounters, she sits on a talking rock and has her first orgasm, learns that the "9 7/8" label on the mad hatter's hat is not his hat size, that the only thing Humpty Dumpty (Bucky Searles, who also wrote the lyrics) broke when he fell off the wall was his erection, that Tweedle-dee (Tony Richards) and Tweedle-dum (Bree Anthony, SATAN WAS A LADY) are a very flexible (and incestuous) brother and sister, that the White Knight (Jason Williams, FLESH GORDON) is more interested in the Black Knight (Bruce Finklesteen) than Alice herself, and whilst attending the King's ball (in the Queen's box) that the Queen of Hearts (Juliet Graham, EMANUELLE AROUND THE WORLD) wants a different kind of head from Alice. Released with a self-applied X-rating, an XXX version running 6 minutes longer does exist as well. MAD MAGAZINE's Jack Davis designed the credits border artwork.

Comments

Subtitled "An X-Rated Fantasy," the X-rating was self-applied and the film actually received an R-rating by the MPAA (an XXX cut does exist). The XXX-rated version of the film has been available on DVD in an inferior transfer via Arrow (not the UK label). The now-defunct label Subversive Films released a special edition featuring both the R-rated version and the XXX version as a composite using the new master for the non-hardcore footage and a noticeably inferior source for the more explicit material.

Code Red's anamorphic, progressive, single-layer transfer of the R-rated version appears is likely from the same master. A few shots are hazy, but the cutaways in these scenes are clear (suggesting an in-camera error during these bits). The image is generally soft, but the filmw as shot largely outdoors with various soft focus filtration in front of the camera lens. The OOP Subversive disc has a 37 minute documentary and a restoration comparison while the Code Red features a new interview with actor Larry Gelman.
