Editorial Reviews

Oliver Twist (Richard Charles), an innocent and starving young orphan, flees from the workhouse to the streets of London, where he is befriended by the Artful Dodger (Martin Tempest) and introduced to a world of pick-pocketing and petty crimes by the devious Fagin (George C. Scott). Through the kindness of one of his victims, Oliver escapes the shadowy underworld of Victorian London, but still finds himself far from safe from the villains of his past.
Adapted by Academy Award®-winner James Goldman (The Lion in Winter), this acclaimed production, which also stars Timothy Curry and Eileen Atkins, has been universally praised by fans and critics alike.

When I first saw OLIVER TWIST starring George C. Scott on television back in the 1980s, I thought it was an excellent production. After more than twenty years, it's still excellent. Charles Dickens' story is brought to life by Mr. Scott and the wonderful cast. This TV movie should be available for all to see, instead of being out-of-print. I highly recommend this movie.

There are a lot of movies based on Charles Dickens classic novel Oliver Twist and I remember watching this version on TV I liked it and thought that George C. Scott and Tim Curry were really good and I would like to see this movie put on DVD! Tim Curry was good as Bill Sykes and the scene in which he attacked Nancy was scary!

This is a fine version of Dicken's novel. George C. Scott is always interesting, and he does not disappoint. Cherie Lunghi is a fine Nancy. Lovers of the David Lean movie or the Novel itself, as is often the case may find this version lacking, but for a made for TV movie this is very entertaining.

Format: VHS Tape
This 1982 British TVM of the Charles Dickens classic directed by Clive Donner has a teleplay by James Goldman, unsubtle class distinction between the rich and the poor where the poor are comic grotesques, but also a gentle performance by George C Scott as Fagin.
Jewish groups took offence at the performance of Alec Guiness' Fagin in the David Lean 1948 version, forcing Lean to cut footage in order for his film to be released in America. Scott's own nose probably helps him pass for Jewish, and here he shows sexual interest in Nancy to counterbalance the subtext of a man who enjoys the company of young boys. However Scott's infamous rage is in check, perhaps because he shares some much tube time with children.
If purists may find this Fagin is more likeable than Guinness' that seems hardly important to those interested in witnessing great acting. It's only a pity that Scott is a relatively minor player in the narrative, but even the title boy becomes a relatively minor player in this adaptation!
As Bill Sikes, Tim Curry is rather non-threatening and his dog seems dubbed, but Eileen Atkins as Mrs Mann, the head of the orphanage, gets some laughs from her duplicitous agenda. With Oliver being an Alice in Wonderland blonde and one half expecting the performers to burst into the songs from the musical Oliver! at any moment, the treatment doesn't achieve a semblence of reality until Scott appears, and after that rises and falls. This Oliver is never really in any serious peril, notably not from Bill Sikes, but at least Fagin retains his dignity.
