Alice in Wonderland

An eight-minute wonder from over a hundred years ago, this Alice in Wonderland was the first to be adapted for the big screen. Quite intriguing and impressive for it’s time, the movie plays with special effects to show Alice growing and shrinking. The small children dressed as cards add an endearing and amusing touch. It was an ambitious movie project in 1903, from producer Cecil Hepworth.

The quality of the movie is bit poor (it hasn’t been restored properly), but it’s still worth watching.

Alice falls asleep in a garden and begins to dream. She wakes up to find a white rabbit dressed in a waistcoat jumping around excitedly. He scampers down a hole, and Alice follows. She has a series of adventures, including a tea party with the Mad Hatter, and an encounter with the Queen of Hearts.
