Weird, wild stuff in 1933 "Alice in Wonderland"

Disney may have the most famous one, but it wasn’t the only studio to adapt Lewis Carroll’s “Alice in Wonderland.” Check this weird, disturbing clip of W.C. Fields as Humpty Dumpty in a 1933 live-action adaptation. Classic-era movies STILL have the best special effects, man. This is creepy stuff. (Thanks, DailyBeast!)

It was to hope a total reinvention of Wonderland, with the twist that Burton gives to his films, but sadly, this version on LSD of “Alice in Wonderland” is not much than that, because where previous Burton films shined, this one failed. There’s not a chance in getting involved with the characters (as we did with both sweet Eddies – Scissorhands and Wood -), and the adventure they are living is as plain as a 32′ LED TV.
