Best Comedy Movies of 1910 : Alice's Adventures in Wonderland

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland

5.9/10 IMDB

Made by the Edison Manufacturing Company and directed by Edwin S. Porter, the film starred Gladys Hulette as Alice. Being a silent film, naturally all of Lewis Carroll's nonsensical prose could not be used, and, being only a one-reel picture, most of Carroll's memorable characters in his original 1865 novel similarly could not be included. What was used in the film was faithful in spirit to Carroll, and in design to the original John Tenniel illustrations. Variety complimented the picture by comparing it favorably to the "foreign" film fantasies then flooding American cinemas.

Starring: Gladys Hulette, Yale Boss ..
Directed by: Edwin S. Porter
