London by Dickens
Dickens' birthday is on February 7. Celebrate by checking out the most unique and exciting Dickensian DVD to come along in a very long time.
So what is so wonderful about this DVD? The answer is that it eschews the usual Dickensian greatest hits and, instead, goes off in a very different direction. To be specific, it deals with Dickens' lesser known short writings. It is, in essence, a montage drawn from "Sketches by Boz," "The Uncommercial Traveller," "Sketches of Young Couples," "The Mudfog Papers," and "The Pic-Nic Papers." How's that for something new and completely different!
It was made for American television and broadcast live in 1958 and stars a very young Alan Bates.
The DVD is available exclusively from Creative Arts Television.
