In a startling development, David 'Sherlock' Stoner at Silva Screen has tracked down the current ownership of the film of 'Alice's Adventures in Wonderland'.
It is controlled by a London-based company known as London Films. That's the good news. The less good news is that it was among a package of films they leased out to another UK DVD company a few years ago, who, to date, have shown no sign of actually releasing it.
The slightly better news is that the lease will expire in a year or two and in the meantime London Films are trying to retrieve it on the grounds that if the company concerned aren't going to issue it, they could market it elsewhere.
So, watch this space for future developments.
