On this episode, we discuss the forty-first Best Picture Winner: “OLIVER!”
“Oliver!” is an adaptation of the Broadway musical of the same name based on the Charles Dickens novel. In the film, 9-year-old orphan Oliver Twist falls in with a group of street-urchin pickpockets led by the Artful Dodger and masterminded by the criminal Fagin. When Oliver’s intended mark, Mr. Brownlow, takes pity on the lad and offers him a home, Fagin’s henchman Bill Sikes plots to kidnap the boy to keep him from talking. Directed by Carol Reed, the film stars Mark Lester as Oliver, Jack Wild as The Artful Dodger, Ron Moody as Fagin, Shani Wallis as Nancy, Oliver Reed as Bill Sikes, and Joseph O’Conor as Mr. Brownlow.
