Alice in Wonderland (1903 film).

Alice in Wonderland
is a 1903 British silent film directed by Cecil Hepworth and Percy Stow. It is the first movie adaptation of Lewis Carroll's children's book Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.

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.

It is now available from several sources, and is included as a bonus feature on a 1996 BBC DVD. It is also included on Vintage Cinema - experiments in early film 1900s DVD.
