Alice’s Cartoon World: An Interview with Virginia Davis (film #19 on Disc 1 of Disney Rarities DVD (Disney, 2005)). [Category: Outtakes & Obscurities]

Leonard Maltin interviews Virginia Davis, the former child star of the “Alice” cartoons featured on the Disney Rarities collection. Davis gives lie to the cliché of the tormented former child star––she seems surprisingly well-adjusted and cheerful.

Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: *. Weirdness: **. Historical Interest: ****. Overall Rating: ***.
