Musicalized version of the Dickens novel.
18 April 1999 | by (Worcester, England.) – See all my reviews

Produced by the Readers Digest in England, this film was released in the UK as "Quilp". Anthony Newley is brilliant as the hunchbacked Daniel Quilp with excellent support from Micheal Horden and the lovely Sarah Varney. Early appearance too for Peter Duncun (later of Blue Peter tv fame) as Kit. Newley also wrote the songs for the production, the highlights being "Sport of Kings" sung by Newley and "Happiness Pie" sung by Varney and David Warner. Enjoyable on all sides, but released after the age of the musical, hence its critical dislike.
