Kathy



I love this "Technicolor photo" of Kathryn Beaumont Levine as she poses in an Alice costume, around 1950/51. The kitten is of course a stand in for Dinah.
And look at all of the Mary Blair art behind them.

I wished the next photo would be in color as well. Taken early on in production of Alice in Wonderland.




One of many scenes Kathy acted out for the animators. All of Alice's key animators, Milt Kahl, Marc Davis and Ollie Johnston thought that Kathy was just perfect for the role.



A few years ago Kathy reenacted a pose from a Disneyland poster.



A while ago I posted this extensive collection of photos and drawings regarding Alice:

  3. I adore Alice in her blue dress, white stockings and black Mary Jane shoes. She simply is the love of my life :P
