PICKWICK PAPERS: In 1836 young Charles Dickens was commissioned to write a series of humorous stories about the misadventures of the members of a fictional English social club. Dickens called this organization the PICKWICK CLUB named after his central character one Samuel Pickwick. He and his friends set out on a cross-country journey and through a series of innocent misunderstandings they wind up entangled in a comedy of errors that builds to monumental proportions.

Some of the filming took place on location at Rugby giving the picture its strong flavor of authenticity.SVENGALI: Trilby O Ferral is drawn to a group in the next apartment listening to the music of Svengali.
