First ever Alice In Wonderland

7 Mar

The British Film Institute has released this restoration of the very first Alice in Wonderland film from 1903. Shot on 35mm, it was directed by Cecil Hepworth and Percy Stow.

If your going to watch one version of Alice then make sure this is it! It’s silent and only 9 minutes long – all of which contribute to making it fab!

    this might be precious, but it’s nothing compared to the remake of Tim Burton which is much juicier because of the effects..

    This is so much better than Tim Burton’s movie. Especially the colours, the story, the photography and the acting.

    This beats Tim Burton (Overrated!) every time in terms of innovation. Astonishing film. Totally loved it. Subscribed to your great blog. Hope you’ll sub mine.
