Gb Great Expectations
"Made immediately after Brief Encounter, this was the first of two magnificent Dickens adaptations made by David Lean (the second was Oliver Twist). Dickens' complex story with its many characters has been skilfully adapted for the screen with a stellar cast that includes John Mills as Pip, Valerie Hobson as Estella (Jean Simmons plays the young Estella) and, most memorably, Martita Hunt as the definitive Miss Havisham. There are also Finlay Currie, Francis L. Sullivan and, in his screen debut, Alec Guinness." - David Stratton.
