From BFI Films First Version of Alice and Wonderland

Alice in Wonderland from 1903 - restored with colour tints.

"The colours were based on what survives in the original print, and what we know about the chemical recipes used at the time for tinting film. This is certainly one of the oldest tinted films in British film history, possibly even the oldest." - Bryony Dixon, BFI
