Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this 1972 adaptation of Lewis Carroll's Alice's Aventures in Wonderland is not as frightening as some interpretations -- if simply because this Alice has a mind of her own. Alice saves a baby after the Duchess bounces it so hard that it cries terribly. Of course there's a lot of "Off with her head!" talk from the queen, but no heads roll.

Sexual Content

A scary moment after Alice meets Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum: the sky turns dark and an enormous crow emerges from a storm. In the next scene, the Duchess bounces a poor (real) baby so hard that it cries terribly. Alice removes the baby from the home, saying "If I don't take this child away, they will kill it." A lot of "Off with her head!" talk from the queen, but no heads roll.
