To coincide with the March 5 release of Tim Burton's Alice In Wonderland, the BFI Southbank asked me to program a season of Alice films. Running from March 5-17, the season features Alice (1965), Dennis Potter's TV drama (pictured above) that was the template for Gavin Millar's remarkable Dreamchild which is also showing, along with Paramount's little-seen 1933 Alice In Wonderland which stars Cary Grant, Gary Cooper and WC Fields, among others, Jan Svankmajer's creepy Alice (1988), Jonathan Miller's BBC production and the 1949 Anglo-French Alice Wonderland (pictured below) which is perhaps the most faithful adaptation to date.
I had hoped to include the 1903 Cecil Hepworth version but it's been restored by the BFI and will be shown separately. Here it is, anyway.
