The theme for the Film Club this week is 'musicals', so I've plumped for the 1968 Best Picture Oscar-winner, Oliver! Directed by Carol Reed, it is the all-singing, all-dancing adaptation of Charles Dickens' Victorian novel. It tells the story of the orphan Oliver Twist, who finds fellowship in a gang of child pickpockets, led by Fagin.
The film stars Ron
Moody, Mark Lester, Shani Wallis, Jack Wild and Oliver Reed and the trailer can be found below.
