Directed by Alberto Cavalcanti during the British film fad for translating Dickens onto the big screen, it manages successfully to contract the book into a couple of hours. As The Star noted at the time "...not all the novel perhaps, but enough to make a film full of the Dickens spirit and character".  2/3 Shelf Life Sport On 4 Facts C4 Daily

It is first-rate and a credit to the British film industry" proclaimed the Daily Worker at the time of the film's release. They're all here - Smike and Squeers and Dotheboys Hall - and all brought to life with what the Daily Herald called a 'respect' for the literary touch of Dickens. All this plus a sterling British cast, which includes Stanley Holloway as the benevolent Vincent Crummles.  3/3 Shelf Life Sport On 4 Facts C4 Daily
