    This spectacular new Special Edition includes brand new featurettes and contains exciting new interactive material that will take you into the very heart of Dickens' London and the musical world of Oliver!. Packed with unmissable features including quizzes, sing-alongs and dance-alongs, this DVD will allow the whole family to experience the magic of Oliver! as never before this Christmas.

    Lionel Bart’s hit musical of Dickens' classic tale was directed by film legend Carol Reed (The Third Man, Our Man in Havana) and features an impeccable cast, including Ron Moody, Harry Secombe, Oliver Reed, Jack Wild and a young Mark Lester as orphan Oliver. The brilliant cast, heartfelt score and stunning choreography earned Oliver! an incredible six Academy Awards, including Best Picture.

    Young Oliver (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 (Moody), his fiendish henchman, Bill Sikes (Reed) and his loyal apprentice, The Artful Dodger (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.

    This is the second time I have purchased this title on Blu Ray having first purchased the german release earlier this year. I had hoped that for the UK release the studio would go back and give this some more attention but, sadly, this has not happened. What we have here is exactly the same with just the artwork showing any signs of change. When I put the Blu Ray in my player it actually came up with a 'Do you want to resume where you left off' message! So this offers nothing new (apart from an English language back cover).

    The Blu Ray transfer is acceptable. It is the best we have right now in the absence of a decent restoration but please be prepared for some grain - quite a lot of grain actually! There is decent amount of sharpness but I just hope for more for an Oscar winning film such as this. Sound is generally OK with a lossless 5.1 mix. Totally inexcusable though is the poor attention given to the menus and chapters. The menu is very, very basic and, while there are chapters, none of the standout moments can be found via the pop-up menu. For instance if you want one of the classic musical numbers you have to guess your way through using the chapter skip button. How much work would it have taken to put some chapters in with a basic pop-up menu option? More effort from the studio needed here but at least they seem to have priced it accordingly.

    Tip - look out for the USA only release from Twilight Time which uses the same transfer but have re-authored the disc so you have decent chapters with scene menus etc., More extras too.

    Overall this is a 5 star film for me but a 3 star Blu Ray release so let's call it 4 stars.

    Ranks highly on my list of best film ever made as well as being the greatest ever musical - truly, truly memorable songs - once heard as a child never forgotten...a splendidly grimey recreation of dickensian london (you can almost taste the bad sausages)...Oliver Reeds greatest ever performance......the kindest hearted prostitute ever seen in a film......Jack Wild, Mark Lester, Bullseye the bull terrier, Ron Moody's Fagin which even out does Alec Guinness's 1948 version - staggeringly good mass dance sequences....and if the whole of the 'Who will buy this wonderful morning' section doesnt make ya feel glad to be alive...give up!
    ..all in all the most re-visited film in my collection...an uplifting..moving..thoroughly entertaining British classic..an unequivocal 10/10

    Just bought this for my daugter and its a superb buy. its easy to forget how good these classic musicals are. this perticular edition is great becasue it includes the Dance and singalong versions of the song. you are shown through all the moves for perticular songs and then can dance to them like a pro well maybe not. Only negative and its a really small point as this is fantastic value is there are only 3 dance along songs would have been great with more. still 5* though!

    I loved this movie! It is easily one of the best musicals ever made. First of all, the songs are absolutely marvelous, and I mean it. "Boy for sale" is sombre though very good; but all the other songs are glorious, and will put a smile on your face: "Consider yourself"; "You've got to pick a pocket or two"; "It's a fine life," "Come back soon," I'd do anything," "Who Will Buy," "Reviewing the Situation;" "Oom-pah-pah" are just some of the examples that have stayed in my memory after just one viewing. To say that they are wonderful is an understatement. They are also beautifully sung. One reviewer notes that Oliver's singing voice (dubbed by a girl) irritates him. Don't worry about that. I agree that perhaps it could have been better, and yet I think the singing voice matches Oliver's speaking voice very well, as well as his presentation as a timid little boy. After all, they couldn't have cast Julie Andrews in all of the roles, in all of the musicals ever made. The singing of Nancy, played beautifully and convincingly by Shani Wallis, is very good, as is the singing of the Artful Dodger.
    All of the actors shine in their roles: Oliver is portrayed as a timid and naive little boy. The kind hearted and devoted Nancy, who sacrifices herself for the sake of others,won my sympathy right away. Fagin is one of the best comical characters I have ever seen on screen, and you simply get attached to him. There were in fact moments when I was deeply touched by this man so entrapped in a life of crime, that he cannot escape it. The boy playing the Artful Dodger, one of the most talented thieves of Fagin's gang, is amazing - look out for the expressions on his face throughout the film, very artful indeed, and very touching at the same time; I could not avoid loving him.

    This is me sizing up the picture on my new Panasonic 55 LED 3D full HD TV.

    Its fair to say from the outset that SONY pictures had many decisions made when transferring the print used for this blu-ray.
    Its a shame not all were the best , as were the quality of the prints used for this final , and now renowned disappointment so many of its fans have been waiting for.
    So , is it worth the upgrade ?
    What you loose in vibrancy , you gain in depth of picture. and it is important to remark that none of this film stock has had any "frame-by-frame" restoration or digital "jiggery-pokery" , it has simply been scanned hastily from a 35 mm anamorphic negative leaving in all the original colour timing fades which befits any late 1960s stored can of film.
    You can see during the "Intermission" screen just how jaded the print has become looking more like a yellowed page from an original Dickens Novel than a Hi-def clean up of a classic Movie-musical..
    But its vastly better than the standard DVD transfer that has been the standard before the Blu-ray was born.
    The film grain is evident , yes , but so is the detail and much more depth into the frame reviling so much more in the details and set construction never before seen.
    Costumes have more detail and in lighter scene's the greens and reds pop out like shots of colour on a painting.
    My favourite more noticeable thing are the the ladders the window cleaners danced on during the "Who will Buy" song as they can clearly be seen as silver aluminium that were badly painted brown to look "wooden" (as that metal was yet to be invented in Oliver's time)..
