Alice in Wonderland: The Original 1903 Film Adaptation

Alice in Wonderland has a long tradition in American cinema. You can find versions from 2010, 1972, and 1951. You’ll even find a silent version dating all the way back to 1903. Thanks to the British Film Institute (BFI), you can watch online this silent version of Lewis Carroll’s classic tale for the first time. Produced just eight years after the birth of cinema, the film, originally running 12 minutes, was “the longest film produced in England at that time.” The version above is unfortunately incomplete, running just 9 and a half minutes. But it has been recently restored (to the best extent possible). BFI offers more information about this early cinema gem here. Finally, you can download a free copy of Lewis Carroll’s classic, Alice in Wonderland, within our Free Audio Books and Free eBooks collections.

    Wow, thought that the new Alice In Wonderland was the only one. Didn’t knew that there were older movies with the same title.
