My ex is crazy about anything doing with ALICE IN WONDERLAND.


Together, we love the song WHITE RABBIT from the Airplane’s first album, Surrealistic Pillow

Here is an absolutely fascinating story about the young lady who was the model and voice for the Disney version of ALICE IN WONDERLAND!  Click the link below for the full story and some great photos!

Meet the Real-Life ‘Alice in Wonderland’

WhiteRabbitKathryn Beaumont was the life model and voice actress for both Alice and ‘Peter Pan’s Wendy.

If you’ve ever marveled at the animated beauty of Disney’s Alice in Wonderland, you aren’t alone. The animation technology used to make the film was state-of-the-art in 1951, but when it came to bringing the title character to life, the artists relied on a good old-fashioned life model.

Kathryn Beaumont not only voiced Alice, she was also in the studio while the animators were working. She wore Alice’s dress, acted out Alice’s adventures, and just generally played the part of the girl who went chasing a rabbit down a very curious hole.
