Nancy, Bet, their fellow barmaids and the saleswomen of WHO WILL BUY all wear their hair loose in what was one of the most popular fashions of the late 1960s; the high class ladies of the latter number, on the other hand, wear their hair in the correct fashions of the 1830s. See more »

This film introduced me to musicals at the age of 5 or 6, starting a trend which has lasted for over two decades since - it remains my favourite for a lot of reasons - the great treatment of Dickens' admittedly complicated book; memorable characters who do not sing, alongside those who do (stellar performances from everyone); fun and frolics, and a few heartbreaking moments; and Lionel Bart's tremendous score. The 'Who Will Buy' sequence is one of the best ever. One to watch and cherish and remember just how good musical films used to be.
