" Alice in Wonderland "

Made in 1903, 37 years after Lewis Carroll wrote "Alice in Wonderland" and 8 years after the birth of cinema, the first film version of Alice has recently been restored by BFI National Archive. This adaption was based on the original illustrations by Sir John Tenniel.

Directed by Cecil Hepworth and Percy Stow, Hepworth cast his wife in dual roles as the Red Queen and the White Rabbit, while he himself makes an appearance as the Frog Footman.

At the time, Alice in Wonderland was the longest running film coming in at 800 ft. and 12 minutes, of which 8 minutes have survived.
