Alice in Wonderland (1903) March 7, 2010

With Tim Burton’s version of Alice in Wonderland all over the cinemas, it seems like a pretty fitting time for the British Film Institute National Archive to unveil the original Alice in Wonderland film in all its restored glory.

The film, made in 1903, was released just thirty seven years after Lewis Carroll wrote his book.  With a running time of 12 minutes, it was the longest film produced in England at the time.  However, over the years, the materials of the film became severely damaged.  But with a lot of love (and a lot of patience), you can now view 8 of the original 12 minutes.

We think it’s INSANELY cute and packed with charm.  Massive kudos to the BFI for taking the time to restore it.
