Product Overview

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.

Young Tom receives a good deal of hazing from his classmates but he takes it all in stride until he runs afoul of the school bully the sadistic Flashman. A more despicable villain doesn t exist in English literature or in English movies for that matter. Tom learns the hard way that rebelling against Flashman carries a painful penalty. Robert Newton gives a moving performance as the school s reform-minded headmaster. 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.
