(1968) Rousing British musical drawn from Charles Dickens’ Oliver Twist but bearing little resemblance to the original in adaptor Lionel Bart’s borrowing only the chief characters and turning them loose in what amounts to a colorful, swirling-stomping-singing Cockney street show. As Fagin, rubber-faced Ron Moody carries most of the burden, with Mark Lester perfectly winning as Oliver, Jack Wild stealing scene after scene (along with handy wallets) and Harry Secombe as a bumbling Mr. Bumble. Under Carol Reed’s direction, it all adds up to delightful fare for the entire family. (A-I — general patronage) (G — general audiences) TCM (cable)
