James Anthony Pearson,
not a bad film, but i did notice they used a lot of b.g. score from the animated Star Trek series, as did Oliver Twist, in which Davy Jones voiced the Artful Dodger. for some reason during a certain piece, i keep expecting to hear, "Scotty, beam us aboard, now!". go fig. but again, this was out the same time the cartoon Star Trek was on the TV. the songs (some anyway) were a bit odd at times. for the most, it was in line with the novel. i first saw this in '81 on an afternoon show on NBC; it was hosted by Melissa Sue Anderson from Little House on the Prairie. i think they showed Oliver Twist as well, though i do recall it being on Showtime a lot in the early '80s.
