Alice Boards 3

- This is the third photo of the board for Alice In Wonderland. Once again, I think it was drawn by Joe Rinaldi. I have no evidence to prove otherwise, and that guess makes the most sense to me at the moment.

As with past posts, I show the storyboard photo as is, then reproduce it one section at a time so that I can enlarge it to the largest size.

At the base of the storyboard are these two Mary Blair images. I did a bit of a search (and I do mean “a bit”), and I wasn’t able to find color reproductions of these two pictures. So I’m posting them as they appear in this photo. They’re a bit blown out in the photo in hand, so I did a little work in photoshop to pull out a bit more of the grays.

There is another photo which includes a bunch more of Mary Blair’s designs for Alice. I’ll post that soon (though I also have to search to see if any of those are printed in color elsewhere.)

    Thank you so much for posting these boards. You know, as I got older, I began to detect elements of satire in the film. Although much was lost in translation, there are still elements of Carroll’s satire in the film. Look at this scene with the Flowers, as well as the trial scene at the end.

    there are elements of Silly Symphonies,as well as
    Disney inspired characters-Dog and Caterpillars-
    a beautiful scene I understand WALT was a stickler about

    Great job finding these old treasures. Any chance of any more Alice storyboards or live action pictures?

    These storyboards are great! I still think it’s amusing that they would include a shot of one of the flowers pulling up Alice’s skirt. You certainly wouldn’t see something like that in a modern Disney/Pixar film.

    I believe your guess that the Alice Boards 3 was done by Joe Rinaldi is correct. He was my father and I recognize his hand in those drawings. If someone thinks differently, I’d like to hear from them. Very nice post, by the way.
