The classic version of Dickens' tale of a young orphan on the streets of London.
Expressionistic adaptation of the Dickens classic, recounting the travails of a little orphan boy in the sooty landscape of Victorian England, from the grim drudgery of the workhouse to the hazards of petty street crime, as he searches for a home. This edition features the fully restored, uncensored version of the film containing all of Alec Guinness' controversial performance.
