Classic British Musical returns to the screen No Free List
(1968, dir. Carol Reed, w/ Ron Moody, Mark Lester, Harry Secombe, Jack Wild)
Oliver! will finish at approximately 10:11pm.
Inspired by Charles Dickens' novel Oliver Twist, Lionel Bart's 1961 London and Broadway musical hit glossed over some of Dickens' more graphic passages but managed to retain a strong subtext to what was essentially light entertainment. For its first half-hour or so, Carol Reed's Oscar-winning 1968 film version does a masterful job of telling its story almost exclusively through song and dance. PNFILM INFO (Astor rating)
