Hollywood Wonderland: The Cinema and Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland - Mitch Brian
Beginning with a silent short released in 1903, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland has intrigued both filmmakers and viewers. Lewis Carroll’s 150-year-old book has spawned close to two dozen movie and television adaptations.
Mitch Brian of the University of Missouri-Kansas City’s Communication/Film Studies Department surveys the story’s on-screen history. Using clips, he explores how Alice has evolved on film through the ages.
