" TV (RECORDED TO DVR) / REWATCH Date watched: 5th January, 2013 Project: Classics Why?: I must have seen this one before but I can't seem to remember. Director: David Lean Thoughts: A fairly faithful telling of Oliver Twist. Refreshing to see the story in it's own right minus songs :p. It has been a while. The Bechdel Test = FAIL | Two Women = Yes | Talking = Well, no | About a man = yes | Well, thre is really only Nancy as a main character. I don't remember women speaking together. "

Morrissey's influences (120 movies items)

"This movie was mentioned by Morrissey as one of his favourites in a feature titled "Sound and Vision" printed in the March 1993 issue of Movieline. Diana Dors, one of Morrissey's favourite actresses, played in it. The "Don't leave us in the dark" sample heard at the end of the song "Billy Budd" was lifted from this movie. It is Anthony Newley's character the Artful Dodger's last plea to the fleeing Fagin. In a Q&A published in Uncut magazine in 2006, Morrissey answered the question "Lynch or"

"2.1 DVD Charles Dickensin niin iki-ihana superklassikko on aikojen saatossa tuonut päivänvaloon lukemattomia filmatisointeja, eikä se todellakaan ole ihme. Näitpä siitä musikaalin, elokuvan tai teatteriversion, sen runsassävyinen tarina jaksaa aina innostaa. Sekään ei ole mikään ihme, että brittimestari David Leanin filmiversiota pidetään parhaimpana. Siinä nousee esiin teollistumisen aikakauden synkkyys oivasti lisäten tarinaan puhtia. Leanin tapaan se on visuaalisesti hienoin"

"The second Lean+Green Dickens adaptation. I'd say this is even more impressive visually with the darker visuals. "
