Still from Great Expectations.
(1946, 118 minutes)
Director: David Lean
David Lean's remarkable adaptation captures the warm humor and richness of character that is quintessential in Charles Dickens's writing. Anthony Wager and John Mills star, respectively, as the young and adult Pip in this classic story of a young man's journey from orphan to gentleman. Winner of two Oscars for Best Art Direction and Best Cinematography, the film also features Valerie Hobson as Pip's lifelong love Estella and Alec Guinness in his film debut as Pip's London flatmate Herbert Pocket.
