" The World is a Dark place when you're a Poor Orphan "
15 November 2012 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Considered the finest author of the Victorian Era, Charles Dickens wrote, among other novels, the story of " Oliver Twist. " Beginning in 1922, many film adaptations have depicted the horrific settings of the young waif and the dark misery of England's Workhouses. This version which stars' the multi-talented George C. Scott as Fagin, is the most memorable. If you have read the original novel published in 1837, you are fortunate. Further, this particular movie is indicative of the harsh, indeed, brutal life of poverty-stricken English children, described by the author. The cast of the movie is superb and includes, Richard Charles as Oliver, Tim Curry as murderous Bill Sikes, Michael Hordern as Mr. Brownlow and Oliver Cotton as the compassionate Nancy. All in all, this is the best film adaptation of Dickens' superior novel and a true Classic in every sense of the word. Easily recommended to all. ****
