(Frank Lloyd, US 1917, 70 min.)
Silent Tuesdays. This first feature-length version of Dickens’s most overtly romantic novel is a remarkably faithful and efficient adaptation that allows Dickens’s characters and humanity ample display. Director Frank Lloyd brings subtlety and conviction to both settings and narrative without neglecting spectacle, with the storming of the Bastille a particularly thrilling sequence.
