      There have been many depictions of the classic Charles Dickens story through the years, but this one by british director David Lean with legendary actor Alec Guinness in the role of vicious Fagin, is beyond

      all doubt the most memorable version. David Lean, who is more known for his later epic pictures like Lawrence of Arabia and Bridge on the river Kwai, manages to tell the story of the book ...

      • in his own way, not being enslaved to the exact structure of the novel itself. All the actors, not only Guinness, are extraordinary, and the tone is exactly right. When a famous work of literature
        is depicted there is often a tendency of transferring the novel page by page to a film, but David Leans thinks in images and that’s why his Oliver Twist is so much better than other depictions.
