Oliver is beaten with a cane for "misbehaving" by Mr. Sowerberry, the undertaker to whom he is apprenticed. Noah Claypole, an assistant, sadistically smiles while this is going on.
Oliver sees Fagin counting up his stolen goods. When Fagin sees this, he demands to know in a threatening voice what Oliver has seen.
At one point, Fagin throws a coffee pot at the Artful Dodger, but it misses him and hits the wall.
When the mob chases Oliver believing that he has picked Mr. Brownlow's pocket, a man punches Oliver and knocks him out cold.
Bill tries to beat Oliver after Oliver tries to escape, but Nancy stops him. In anger, she tries to physically attack Fagin, but then faints.
The unhappily married Widow Corney throws objects at her husband Mr. Bumble after he insults her sarcastically. This scene, though, is played for laughs.
When Bill Sikes discovers that Nancy is plotting to return Oliver to his benefactor, he kills her by beating her to death with a huge club after stunning her with the butt-end of his pistol (no blood in the film). She is mostly offscreen during the murder, but we hear what sounds like a combination of Bill's dog howling and Nancy's screams. Bill's dog claws at the locked door of the bedroom (where the murder takes place), frantically trying to escape. Bill tries to kill the dog after the murder, so that the dog will not lead the police to him, but the dog senses what is on Bill's mind and runs away.
Unlike the 1968 musical "Oliver!", Fagin incites Sikes to kill Nancy, by twisting the truth just enough to make Sikes believe that she betrayed everyone to the police. After the murder, Sikes imagines that he sees and hears Nancy's ghost telling him that she didn't inform on him.
Bill knocks the Artful Dodger out with his pistol after the Dodger tries to alert the mob approaching the hideout that Bill is there.
Bill is shot by a policeman while trying to lower himself over a rooftop. The pain of the wound makes him loosen his grip while the rope is still around his neck, and he hangs himself accidentally.
An angry mob breaks into Fagin's hideout after the murder, and as they do, Fagin says "Strike them all dead! What right have you to butcher me?" The mob then grabs Fagin, hauls him away, and a bystander yells "They've got Fagin!", at which the rest of the mob cheers.
