      Don Q. Cine-Mundial Dickens's immortal work has been brought to the screen beautifully. [Full review in Spanish] Jan 13, 2021 Full Review Urban Cinefile Critics Urban Cinefile Probably the thing that Polanski's Oliver Twist does best, is deliver the mood of the day Jun 13, 2006 Full Review Forrest Hartman Reno Gazette-Journal The one flaw is a forced action sequence at the end of the picture, but that's hardly a reason to avoid it.

      Steve D Solid version of the often told tale. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/02/24 Full Review kevin w Dickie Moore's obvious youth contributes to selling this shortened version of the popular Dickens tale of an abused orphan who escapes to the unforgiving streets of early industrial age London, only to be drafted in a gang of thieves and pickpockets. His chance to escape that fate is sidetracked, of course, by the infamous Artful Dodger and Fagin (well played by Irving Pichel), who never saw a childhood he couldn't ruin. Doris Lloyd also is excellent as the put upon wife of the murderous Bill Sykes. Not a bad production despite its overall rushed feel. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Early adaptation of the famous novel, this Monogram production about an orphan child risking a life in crime and corruption from an early age is obviously rushed, cheap and overall poor, as well as outdated and difficult to watch. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/24/23 Full Review Audience Member This black-and-white film adaptation of 'Oliver Twist' is as good as the original novel, starting with the character's life at the orphanage. It's short yet okay for me. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/03/23 Full Review Audience Member The story of Oliver Twist is well portrayed as I remember him from the book. Fagan, Doger, Spikes and Nancy are excellent characters. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/16/23 Full Review Audience Member This black-and-white film adaptation of <i>Oliver Twist</i> is as good as the original novel, starting with the character's life at the orphanage.
