A Faithful Adaptation
3 November 2002 | by (Colton, CA) – See all my reviews

Thank you Grapevine Videos for preserving so many classic silents like this one.

The remarkable thing about this film is the obvious love of Dickens' writing that the director and cast show. The director made sure of using the real settings that Dickens' describes in his story. So that when David enters the city of Canterbury, we see the famous stone arch that welcomes the typical visitor to this day.

Even the over the top acting works well, as it gives modern day audiences an idea of how Dickens timeless melodramas were treated by its Victorian actors.

A definite must see for the Dickens' fans.
