Description: A disreputable barrister finds redemption through the most unlikely of friendships and in the process provides for himself salvation of a kind. Absolutely the finest of all versions of the venerable novel by Charles Dickens, and superb filmmaking on every conceivable level, with the definitive career performance from the great Ronald Colman.

“Charles Dickens would have stood up and applauded had he seen this fabulous 1935 version of his classic tale.

There are no words adequate enough to praise the fine performances in this film dealing with the French Revolution.

Ronald Colman is memorable as Sidney Carton, an alcoholic lawyer, who gave up his life to save the husband (Donald Woods) of the woman he loved. The woman, played by Elizabeth Allan, was strong in emotion and very appealing.” read more
