  • Dawson Casting: Carol Marsh was 20 when she played Alice, who was described in the original book as being 7 years old.
  • Dueling Works: This film's undoing was that it was made around the time Disney decided to make their Alice in Wonderland. Despite the only similarity between the two being that they were based on the same source material, Disney still set out to crush their rival's chances of success.
  • No Stunt Double: Carol Marsh insisted on doing her own stunts. For her fall down the rabbit hole, she was dropped thirty feet into a net. Mile Roselie, a famous French trapeze artist, showed Marsh how to make the fall, but she still ended up with bruised knees and scratched legs.
