REVIEWS:





"If there is any lingering necessity of inspiring more Charles Dickens fans—not to mention more fans for British movies—the thing that should certainly do the job is the film made from 'Great Expectations'. .... For here, in a perfect motion picture, made in England (where it should have been made), the British have done for Dickens what they did for Shakespeare with 'Henry V'; they have
proved that his works have more life in them than almost anything
now written for the screen. .... The fullness of Dickens, of his
stories and characters—his humor and pathos and vitality and all
his brilliant command of atmosphere—has never been so illustrated
as it is in this wonderful film, which can safely be recommended
as screen story-telling at its best."

-- Excerpt from The New York Times; May 23, 1947







"David Lean's 'Great Expectations'...has been called the greatest of all
the Dickens films. [It] does what few movies based on great books can do:
Creates pictures on the screen that do not clash with the images already
existing in our minds."

-- Roger Ebert; August 22, 1999
