AKICILJ: Alice in Wonderland  
From chat just now:
By any chance, are you familiar with a live-action adaptation of "Alice in Wonderland", produced no later than mid-80's, with an older girl (mid- to late-teens, rather than the typical 7 - 9 year old) playing Alice? Only other thing I can tell you about it is that it wasn't a musical adaptation.

It's [a friend]'s favorite version of the film, and she's had no luck at all tracking it down. She and her sister wore out the copy of it that their dad had taped for them back when they were kids.

She didn't remember there being any commercial breaks in their tape, so her inclination was that it was a movie rather than made-for-TV, but her father could have possibly edited out (i.e., not recorded) the commercials, so that's not necessarily an identity clue to the source. She also remembers it being in color, which seems to rule out a mid-60s British adaptation which would otherwise seem to fit the bill, as it's one of the rarer non-musical live actions versions.

Any ideas?

Bug me in a week and I'll dig through my stack (guess what I'm collecting!)

In the mean time, I'd point to the Beckinsale's "Through the Looking Glass" as possibly being a contender.
