(1946) Classic British production of Charles Dickens’ novel in which a poor orphaned lad helps an escaped convict (Finlay Currie), then is enthralled by the ward (Jean Simmons) of a rich recluse (Martita Hunt) until brought to London and turned into a gentleman (John Mills) by a lawyer (Francis L. Sullivan) acting for a mysterious benefactor whose identity has profound consequences. Directed by David Lean, the adaptation re-creates the period story admirably, abetted by Guy Green’s evocative camerawork and the memorable performances of a fine cast in bringing the Dickens characters to life. Menacing situations. (A-I -- general patronage) TCM (cable)
