Our family never stopped performing with characters from Alice in Wonderland. Today marks the anniversary of the day Lewis Carroll was born on 27th February 1832.
Alice in Wonderland – was the first and hardest film I ever made and my favourite. I made it a couple of years before my mother died. She happily climbed up into the loft of my house in South London to operate some of the characters when she was in her late 70s! The boat scene in the garden was a labour of love and took forever.
The white rabbit still comes out of retirement from time to time.. He was was sitting in a tree in Postman’s Park when I was writing poems there two years ago!
