Disney reworked the story to fit with both a younger audience and a time frame suitable for an animated film (it's run time is only 75 minutes). Kathryn Beaumont, who was born in London England, was just 10 years old when she was chosen for the voice of Alice. Walt Disney personally cast Beaumont after seeing her in the film "On an Island with You, " in which the child actress had a small role. Disney was so impressed by her that she was also chosen to be the model for Alice, and would also go on to provide the voice for Wendy in "Peter Pan, " 1953. Beaumont has also reprised her voice acting role as Alice in two episodes of the animated series, Disney's "House of Mouse, " and as both Alice and Wendy in the video game Kingdom Hearts.
She did not retire as the voice of Alice and Wendy until 2005, when her role for these two characters was taken over by Hynden Walch. While a shrunken Alice is chasing after the White Rabbit, she runs into a flower garden where she encounters a large group of beautiful flowers. Alice begins to talk with them and the flowers exclaim they can sing, and The Red Rose (the leader) says, Girls! We shall sing "Golden Afternoon". That's about all of us.After the song, all the flowers try to figure out what kind of flower is Alice. When Alice replies that she isn't a flower, they determine that she must be a weed and change their attitude towards her; and they chase her out of their garden. This is a very rare original production animation cel of a pink Sweet Pea flower from "Alice In Wonderland, " 1951. Her flower head is wonderfully composed of petals that form a bonnet over her delicate mouth and eyes. A beautiful and great addition to any animation art collection.
