User Reviews

well-done bbc mini-series; superior to 1940 film.
24 July 1999 | by bornilonSee all my reviews

This version, which showed in the US as a "Masterpiece Theatre" program, is a good deal more true to the original novel than the 1940 Hollywood attempt with Jimmy Lydon. It is also much less full of treacle. Young Anthony Murphy is an open-faced, earnest Tom, and Richard Morant is very convincing as blackguard-in- training Flashman. While it's not up to the cinematic standard of the Gordon Parry film released in 1950 (with John Howard Davies as Tom), this version is well worth a viewing if you're any kind of fan of Hughes' book.
