  • Cast: Alec Guinness, Robert Newton, Kay Walsh, John Howard Davies, Anthony Newley

A classic screen version of the Dickens' novel, with Guinness a sly Fagin and Newton a menacing Bill Sykes. Instead of making it a light children's story (as in the musical version), Lean taps into the darker side and captures it all in crisp black-and-white images which still look superb.
