Watch 'Alice in Wonderland' from 1903 and Contemplate the Evolution of Filmmaking

In 1903, Cecil Hepworth and Percy Stow made 8 minutes of which the British Film Institute has restored and made viewable on the Web. The film clip shows Alice, though clearly an adult, growing too big for her house. Also, the video is burned out at the edges, barely salvaged, which somehow makes it all the better.
