  • While this film is not especially well-remembered today, and has been eclipsed by practically all of the later film versions of the Dickens novel, it did begin a Hollywood "fad" for Dickens which lasted for about five years. It was followed by the 1934 "Great Expectations" (a poorly reviewed and now forgotten version with Jane Wyatt and Phillips Holmes), the classic 1935 M-G-M all-star version of "David Copperfield", Universal's "The Mystery of Edwin Drood" (also 1935, with Claude Rains), the classic 1936 version of "A Tale of Two Cities", another M-G-M Dickens blockbuster, and the M-G-M version of "A Christmas Carol" with Reginald Owen. There would be very few versions of Dickens from Hollywood after that; they would nearly all be made by British studios.
