Oliver Twist (1948)

Based on the Charles Dickens novel Oliver Twist is about an orphan boy who runs away from a workhouse and meets a pickpocket on the streets of London. Oliver is taken in by the pickpocket and he joins a household of young boys who are trained to steal for their master. This version of Oliver Twist is topped by Alec Guinness's masterly performance of arch-thug Fagin.

After viewing over 10,000 movies, I still have the same opinion I had after I saw this movie the first time and had watched maybe a thousand films at that point: this is simply the best-looking black-and-white film I've ever seen.

On the Criterion DVD, scene after scene is just jaw-dropping. I have never seen so many incredible shots with wonderful contrasts of light and dark. Much of this is filmed dark rooms or nighttime in the cobblestone streets. Those scenes, combined with many facial closeups, great buildings, and interesting camera angles, all make this an incredible viewing experience.

All of this helps make up for watching a depressing story. It was just unappealing, at least to me, because all the people except for the little boy are unlikable. Some of them mistreat the little kid and that's difficult to watch. I'm a sucker for nice people, especially an innocent child, and to see suffer is not fun to me.

One of those bad guys, however, is memorable: Fagin, played by Alec Guiness. In this film, he has to be one of the ugliest people I've ever seen, sporting the biggest nose ever put on screen. A teenage Anthony Newley as "the artful Dodger" also stands out.

But, as someone who is into art, David Lean's direction and Guy Green's camera-work draw me back to this DVD every couple of years...and at least I always know there is a happy ending for the one nice kid in the film.

* Banned on inital release in both Israel and Egypt; in Israel for being anti-Semitic, and in Egypt for making Fagin too sympathetic.

* The wordless opening sequence, in which Oliver's mother staggers over the rain-swept moors to give birth on the steps of the workhouse, was devised by Kay Walsh

* The film's release in the US was delayed until 1951 because of protests from Jewish pressure groups, who judged Alec Guinness's portrayal of Fagin to be anti-Semitic

* Robert Donat was desperate to play Sikes and did a screen test.

Oliver Twist (1948)

Dirección: David Lean


Versión que ofreció David Lean de la genial novela del británico Charles Dickens, editada por Filmax con una copia remasterizada.

Estamos ante la historia de un chaval llamado Oliver, cuya madre murió cuando él nació. Ingresado en un orfanato londinense, el chico escapará de ahí, se criará en la calle, y acabará formando parte de una banda de pilletes a cuyo frente se encuentra el avaro judío Fagin. En uno de los robos, Oliver es atrapado, pero tiene la buena fortuna de que un hombre de buena posición le adopte. Sin embargo, Fagin no está dispuesto a dejar marchar al chico así como así.

David Lean atrapó a la perfección la atmósfera dickensiana, con una fotografía en blanco y negro que encaja muy bien en la historia narrada, y que recuerda a los grabados de Gustavo Doré. La pobreza y la miseria presentes en el Londres del siglo XIX se presentan con realismo, desechando cualquier intento de “embellecerlos” y ocultarlos. Ya antes había probado que Dickens no se le resistía, pues adaptó en Cadenas rotas la novela Grandes esperanzas. Para hacer este trabajo no dudó en seguir lo que consideraba básico en la adaptación de una obra preexistente: “Elige lo que quieras hacer de una novela y hazlo; si es necesario, elimina personajes.” Incluso Lean es capaz de inventar escenas no presentes en la obra original, como la del nacimiento de Oliver, al que acompaña la muerte de su madre, un arranque muy visual, donde se hacen innecesarias las palabras.


Las intepretaciones que vemos en la pantalla son magistrales. Destaca el trío de delincuentes, encarnado por Robert Newton, Alec Guinness y Kay Walsh. El maquillaje que transforma a los actores es especialmente notable en el caso de Guinness. Tan villano era su personaje, que como contó Lean “fui acusado de antisemita. Nunca he sido antisemita. Sólo hice un villano judío.” La sangre llegó al río de tal forma que en Estados Unidos se cortaron veinte minutos en los que Fagin tenía el protagonismo.
