AliceInTheBigLeague

On August 22, 1927, the 57th and final Alice Comedy, Alice in the Big League, was released to theaters. It starred Lois Hardwick as the fourth and final actress to play Alice. By the time this short film was released, it had become apparent to Walt, as well as his distributor Charles Mintz, that the Alice Comedies had run their course, with Alice not serving well as a comedic figure and Julius the cat providing most of the comedic intrigue; Walt was also working with Ub Iwerks on the first cartoon of what would become Oswald the Lucky Rabbit. While Alice in the Big League is not a lost cartoon, it has not been released on home video.
