Scenes Cut From Video Release
2 October 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a good version of Oliver Twist I remember from my childhood. I saw it on TV in the US. However, I want to the poster who says that the scene where Oliver asks for more is missing entirely. It most definitely WAS filmed!It was very moving when shown on TV, as it has Oliver ask for another starving urchin--not exactly the way it was in the book, but let me sound a bit blasphemous for suggesting the scene one-uped Dickens. The scenes leading up to the coffin-maker are there as well. This poster seems to be referring to the VHS that was released briefly in the ninties in the US. For some unknown reason, this version omits these very scenes just like the poster says. It cuts out the very heart out of the movie! Also, the blurb on the back sounds more like Great Expectations than OT, as if whoever wrote didn't even know the story! However, this poster claims to be from London, and this page is referring to a British release of the film, which is not even available in the US. Were these scenes somehow lost?
