Synopsis:
Young Oliver Twist (Mark Lester) is an orphan who escapes the cheerless life of the workhouse and takes to the streets of 19th-Century London. He´s immediately taken in by a band of street urchins, headed by the lovable villain Fagin (Ron Moody), his fiendish henchman Bill Sikes (Oliver Reed) and his loyal apprentice The Artful Dodger (Jack Wild). Through his education in the fine points of pick-pocketing, Oliver makes away with an unexpected treasure... a home and a family of his own.

Oliv-yeah! - Oliver! review by AM

Spoiler Alert
14/06/2020

I like this flick a lot. I was surprised at how many of the tunes I knew already as they've crossed over into popular consciousness. Oliver Reed is simply terrifying as Bill Sikes. What an actor - he should have been the most celebrated actor of his generation, if it wasn't for his well-documented personal demons.

Ron Moody's Fagin is also fantastic - and his rendition of "reviewing the situation" probably the film's highlight.

A word too for little Oliver - Mark Lester following many child-stars into obscurity but he shines in this.

A triumph. Musical Bananas!
