Alice in Wonderland: An X-rated Musical Comedy (1976)

Produced by Bill Osco of Flesh Gordon (1974) fame, this musical reimagining is more panto than porno.

Former Playboy playmate Kristine De Bell plays a chaste librarian who is debating how far to go with her lusty mechanic boyfriend when the White Rabbit leads her through a looking glass.

She arrives in an enchanted realm in which rocks vibrate when you sit on them, Tweedledum and Tweedledee are incestuous siblings and the climactic trial descends into an orgy.

Three varyingly explicit versions were released, with 20th Century-Fox pairing the tamest in a double bill with George Lucas’s Star Wars (1977).

Director Bud Townsend panders to the dirty mac brigade, but he also intersperses the smut with some surprisingly good song-and-dance numbers, which, even though they’re not up to the standard of John Barry and Don Black’s ditties in the 1972 Fiona Fullerton version, still give this the feel of an off-Broadway romp.
