|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. The tone of the tale turns serious when Pickwick is briefly consigned to a debtor s prison a place which only Dickens could describe in the full measure of its hopelessness and horror. And only this picture could capture the flavor of this literary classic so tellingly.

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.
