Vintage Alice & Wonderland

I recently came across The British Film Institute's youtube page and found the restoration of a 1903 silent movie of Alice and Wonderland! 

I could spend some serious time going through all the neat, old films posted on there. I just think it's amazing (and so important) that people are able to salvage these tiny tales from a time before sound, Disney and 3D glasses. There are some pretty substantial effects such as Alice's shrinking-growing-shrinking scene and the floating cheshire cat. How cool, especially given the (simple) technology back then. Enjoy!
