Oliver Twist (30-Oct-1922)

Director: Frank Lloyd

Writers: Frank Lloyd; Harry Weil

From novel: Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens

Producer: Sol Lesser

Keywords: Drama

Born into poverty, orphaned Oliver Twist grows up in a workhouse, later escaping from cruel treatment. Fleeing to London, he meets the Artful Dodger, and takes up with a passel of pickpockets under a man named Fagin. Intended as a vehicle for Jackie Coogan. Includes subplots and characters that are normally dropped from film adaptations of this Dickens tale, making it feel a bit cramped for its 74 minute length.
