The Motherless Child and the Stolen Wedding Ring
Charles Dickens' amazing tale of an orphan and his fate is as spellbinding today as it was when it was written in 1838, and when this movie was filmed almost a hundred years later in 1933, and when you watch it almost a hundred years after that.
A woman dies in childbirth in a workhouse for indigents, and the greedy workhouse woman attending her steals her wedding ring after the new mother dies. When the doctor comes, and sees no ring, no search is made for any relatives and the young baby boy finds his future in a draconian orphanage.
When young Oliver Twist makes the mistake of asking for a second helping of mush, he is locked up as punishment. Later that night he runs away and walks to London in search of a better life.
While Oliver is sleeping in a doorway, a pickpocket discovers him and introduces him to a group of pickpockets. Young Oliver is taught how to pick pockets and the day arrives when he will help the Artful Dodger and Charlie try to steal the wallet of a wealthy man walking the streets of London.
The wealthy man who was robbed discovers the theft and cries for the police. The two pickpockets run like lightning, but little Oliver Twist stands frozen in fear, and is grabbed and held for the cops to take him away.
Can a motherless child wandering the mean streets of nineteenth century London find anything good and worthy . . . . Can a young boy with a made-up name ever find his family and heritage when he is in the clutches of a band of thieves? Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
