Uutisaitta from Finland - November 10th, 1951

This is a new one for me, and the first item from Finland on the blog.  A magazine called Uutisaitta from Finland in 1951, featuring an insanely cool cover.  Uutisaitta loosely translates to 'news trove', so I guess this is all the news that's fit to print - in Finland.
The cover on this is great, again with the weird red dress we've seen so many times in the past.  Did these people not actually watch the film?
The contents don't really have more Alice, just a smaller reproduction of the cover on the title page.  Still, only one I've ever seen!

That IS a cool cover, and Alice's red/pink dress is pretty unusual.

Alice also has bare legs, a strange variant that sometimes crops up in both red & blue dress pictures. It seems rarer than her striped socks variant, though.

@Major - for whatever reason, lots of stuff from '51 has a red dress, including the US lobby card set and one of the US half sheets!

@Chief - mostly the striped stockings show up in material that was published many months prior to the release, mostly magazine ads and such.
