A film by Frank Lloyd
Starring Jackie Coogan
A wonderful adaptation of Charles Dickens’ famous work of a young orphan falling in with a man who trains children to be thieves. Jackie Coogan, at the height of his juvenile stardom, plays the titular orphan and Lon Chaney charismatically inhabits the meaty role of Fagin—an ideal part for the master of makeup!
Filled with a cast of memorable characters, this film is one of the most faithful cinematic adaptations of Charles Dickens’ original saga.
