Summary: Oliver Twist (Barney Clark) is a young orphan in Victorian England who has been sent to a dank workhouse run by the miserly Mr. Bumble (Jeremy Swift) when it is learned there is no one to care for him.
Summary: This is a good version of Oliver Twist I remember from my childhood. I saw it on TV in the US. However, I want to the poster who says that the scene where Oliver asks for more is missing entirely. It most definitely WAS filmed!
Summary: Even though Oliver Twist is a classic story, Polanski is a great director, and the child actors are good, this never reached the greatness that most of his other films did. It is really sad. The film gets a little tiresome as it goes on. But it's not very terrible either.
Nice adaptation of the world-famous book well made by Tony Bill

Summary: Homeless little boy Oliver (Trench) abandoned at orphanage and during one meal he pleads : 'Please, Sir I want some more' . He's mistreated and the abused orphan escapes and befriends Artful Dodger (a scoundrel Elijah Wood) , a roguish pickpocket .
Summary: This, yet another version of Oliver Twist is something rather peripatetic. The plot, something which I'm certain most people know, in this movie is rather confusing. It comes across as the director throwing scenes together without any purpose.
Summary: The sound tract and voice quality left a lot to be desired. The director lacked experience in demanding proper enunciation from the actors. Parts of the movie were in whispers and turning up the volume was to no avail.
