Not as good as David Lean's version but decent and stars the beautiful Barney Clark together with the handsome and talented Harry Eden.

Dividing Bar

A so-so version of this classic story. Barney Clark gives Oliver a bit more ooomph in this film and, together with Harry Eden as Dodger, they make a good combination. Ben Kingsley is not particularly outstanding as Fagin and Bill Sykes isn't menacing enough. Good period detail and backdrops but no boy actor has ever played the Artful Dodger as well as the late Jack Wild. There are good DVD extras although I got the impression Barney Clark was not very engaging as a person but, then, that might just be me.

For me, this movie ranks as second to Oliver! Barney's performance as Oliver was memorable! and he's SO cute!! :)
