Oliver is taken in by the pickpocket and he joins a household of young boys who are trained to steal for their master. This version of Oliver Twist is topped by Alec Guinness’s masterly performance of arch-thug Fagin.
Plot: When 9-year-old orphan Oliver Twist dares to ask his cruel taskmaster, Mr. Bumble, for a second serving of gruel, he’s hired out as an apprentice. Escaping that dismal fate, young Oliver falls in with the street urchin known as the Artful Dodger and his criminal mentor, Fagin. When kindly Mr. Brownlow takes Oliver in, Fagin’s evil henchman Bill Sikes plots to kidnap the boy.

This is the definitive Film version of Oliver Twist. Great noir Cinematography, edited with proper respect for the material and performances, and brilliant performances from all concerned. But Alec Guiness and Robert Newton are standouts. Guiness as Fagin is both socially pathetic and criminally contemptuous, a fiend in rags. And Newton’s Sikes may be his best – you can smell the booze and rotten teeth in his head and sense his brutal youth on the mean streets of early 1800’s London. A loveless Blurry Eyed Brute with a singular talent for violence and crime. London’s underbelly is given it’s due as a character as an unjust and oppressive metropolis. Full of promise and pain as sides to the same coin. Both John Howard Davies as Oliver and a very young Anthony Newley as The Dodger give some of the best performances from children on Film that stand up even by todays standards. Absolutely unmatched by any other version, from the master director David Lean.
