Very few films have been made of this Charles Dickens Classic
14 July 1999 | by star-85See all my reviews

This is a rare, old, & wonderful film. The condition of the film is in very good condition considering the age I would suspect, but if you love the work of Charles Dickens combined with the extremely rare silent films that are available on home video you too might consider it a lost treasure.

"To find a cricket on the hearth is the luckiest thing of all" C.D.

"Chirp the First - The Kettle began it. Don't tell me what Mrs. Peerybingle said. I know better." I wonder who is right.. Mr. P. or Mrs. P.?
