Lewis Carroll’s enrapturing story of Alice and her curious journey down the rabbit wasn’t even on bookshelves for five years before film makers tried to recreate the tale on-screen. And why not? With the colorful characters such as the Mad Hatter, the Cheshire Cat and the Queen of Hearts, the book was perfect for theaters. After a silent film, an early version with voice and an adaptation with puppets, Disney made its animated classic in 1951. Their take shaped the public’s view of Alice until 2010 when Tim Burton’s 3D version added some creepiness to the tale. We prefer the former version — it is a children’s story after all.
