Three releases from **VCI**
ALICE IN CARTOONLAND – The 35mm Collection

Walt Disney produced 57 “Alice” cartoons between 1923 and 1927. The series owed its success to both its clever special effects – cartoon characters interacting with a live young girl cleverly superimposed within the frame – and its breezy humor. The cartoons on this DVD have remarkable clarity because they were transferred direct from 35mm nitrate negatives.


Extra Features:
1. “Alice in Hollywood” by JB Kaufman, co-author, with Russell Merritt, of “Walt in Wonderland: The Silent Films of Walt Disney"

2. Three cartoons from the seldom seen “Life Cartoon Comedy” series, re-titled “Krazy Kid Cartoons” for their 1930 sound reissue.

3. Synopsis of each of the cartoons on the DVD with a click to play feature.


The Cisco Kid Western Collection featuring The Gay Cavalier, Beauty and the Bandit, South of Monterey, Riding the California Trail, Robin Hood of Monterey & King of the Bandits.
