Uploaded on Thursday 25 March 2010


Alice in Wonderland (1903), an early British silent film directed by Cecil Hepworth and Percy Stow, was the first movie adaptation of Lewis Carroll's children's book Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.[1]

The film is memorable for its use of special effects, including Alice's shrinking in the Hall of Many Doors, and in her large size, stuck inside of White Rabbit's home, reaching for help through a window.

Only one copy of the original film is known to exist and parts are now lost. The British Film Institute has partially restored the movie and its original film tinting on February 24, 2010. It is now available from several sources, and is included as a bonus feature on a 1996 BBC DVD.
