Jolly good fun! Absolutely wizard! Spiffing! Beautifully colourised. Better than that loathsome, lurid Technicolor rubbish. Nigel Patrick amazingly good as Mr Jingle. Donald Wolfit gives the performance of his career - I never knew he could act!
A decent interpolation of Dickens with Hayter a jolly good Pickwick. It has a perhaps too clean an appearance but the happy picnic feel persists throughout and if not of the standard of the Lean films, it nevertheless provides a solid pocket minature.
