Alice in Wonderland
Ravi Shankar’s music accompanies this adult take on the surreal classic, starring Peter Sellers and Peter Cook.
Dir Jonathan Miller
With Anne-Marie Mallik, Peter Cook, Peter Sellers, John Gielgud
First broadcast in 1966, this TV film was firmly aimed at adult audiences, and is a marked departure from most adaptations of Lewis Carroll’s classic novel. Featuring Peter Sellers, Peter Cook, an unknown Alice (Mallik) and a wonderfully incongruous sitar-heavy score by Ravi Shankar, the film delivers an appropriately eccentric audio-visual adventure.
