Lewis Carroll's classic children's story has long proved fertile ground for Freudian analysis, surrealists, social historians, literary critics and filmmakers. The numerous film adaptations range from a Disney production to a brilliantly quirky and disturbing version from Czech animator Jan Svankmajer. Jonathan Miller's version (scored by Ravi Shankar), made for BBC1 in 1966, is truly original, slyly subversive, and perfectly captures the haunting, dreamlike, subtly menacing atmosphere of Carroll's fantasy. The stellar cast includes members of the acting aristocracy; Peter Sellers, Peter Cook, Wilfred Brambell, Ann-Marie Mallik, Sir Michael Redgrave, Sir John Gielgud, Leo McKern to name a few. This DVD also features a rare treat from the British National Film and Television Archive, the original silent version of "Alice in Wonderland" directed by Percy Stow in 1903.
