Reviews

This Ealing production of Charles Dickens' novel stars Cedric Hardwicke as the eponymous hero. The duplicitous scheming of an avaricious uncle robs Nicholas Nickleby of his rightful inheritance. In order to care for his family, Nicholas is forced to leave his schoolmaster's post, and seek his fortune as a travelling entertainer.

THIS IS EALING'S WELL-LIKED 1947 PRODUCTION FEATURING A GALLERY OF BRITISH STARS. APPARENTLY STUDIOCANAL HAVE GONE TO SOME LENGTHS TO RESTORE AND REMASTER THIS FILMS FOR DICKENS' CENTENNIAL. THIS IS GOOD NEWS AS PREVIOUS DVD EDITIONS HAVE LOOKED ABSOLUTELY TERRIBLE. SO THIS IS THE ONE TO BUY!

This is the 1947 Ealing Studios version with Cedric Hardwicke,Stanley Holloway and Derek Bond remastered and re-released by studiocanal as part of their vintage classics series in 2012. the dialogue is nice and clear with just a small bit of hiss audible during some scenes and it has optional english subtitles.the picture has a lot of scratches but looks pretty decent considering it's age.the extras include a short interview with two BFI Dickens season curators another short interview with Dickens biographer Michael Slater,a 15 min Nicholas Nickleby silent film from 1912,the original trailer and a behind the scenes gallery.the aspect ratio is 4:3,audio is 2.0 mono and it's region 2 locked.this release while not as good looking a restoration as for example Kind Hearts and Coronets by the same company is still the best this film has looked or sounded on dvd and is definitely an improvement over previous releases.

I like the early versions of these type of stories, modern versions seem to rely too much on background music and hi tech production.
Closer to the book.
Had this on video for ages and decided to update the format.
