Oliver!, cures what ails ya.

Anyone with a heart in them cannot help being lifted by this musical. I'm yet to meet anyone who doesn’t know at least one song...'Oliver!' is a British Institution.

Every single song makes you want to join in and stirs an unexplainable pride in the heart of any Londoner. Every single adaptation of Dicken's Oliver after this has yet to hold a candle. Nobody has played a better D... read more

A good movie

Honestly, I wasn’t sure what to expect from this flick but since it won the Best Picture Academy award, I thought I should give it a try. The first interesting thing about this movie is that it was actually the end of an era. Indeed, while musicals were dominating the movie world at the time (The Broadway Melody (1929), The Great Ziegfeld (1936), Going My Way (1944), An American in Paris (1951),... read more

Quick – what did Sir Carol Reed win his Oscar for? If you answered The Third Man, The Fallen Idol, or any of his acknowledged masterpieces you’d be wrong. In fact, Reed didn’t win his Oscar until late in his career during the height of the Academy’s obsession with two different things: musicals and all things British.   Enter into that atmosphere Oliver!

This criminal mentor admits Oliver into his academy of larceny, introducing him also to the brutish Bill Sikes (Oliver Reed) and Sikes's kind-hearted girlfriend, Nancy (Shani Wallis).

“Quick – what did Sir Carol Reed win his Oscar for? If you answered The Third Man, The Fallen Idol, or any of his acknowledged masterpieces you’d be wrong. In fact, Reed didn’t win his Oscar until late in his career during the height of the Academy’s obsession with two different things: musicals and all things British.   Enter into that atmosphere Oliver! An all-singing, all-dancing version of Charles Dickens’ well-known story of a street urchin finding a happy ending. The 60s were a busy period of Hollywood snatching Broadway productions and recreating them to a zealously faithful degree.   Not only did we get My Fair Lady, West Side Story, and The Sound of Music as transplants and Best Picture winners, but The Music Man, Funny Girl, and Hello, Dolly! as nominees.
