How would Richardson tackle a period film in color, something quite outside his experience? The answer was: with gusto. He and his screenwriter, the playwright John Osborne, agreed there was only one way to approach an irreverent novel like Tom Jones: that is, irreverently. Their adaptation performs wonders in compressing Fielding’s nine-hundred-page opus into a film lasting a little over two hours, while ensuring that not only are the major incidents all there but also the main themes.

Where Kubrick [with Barry Lyndon] would exactingly recreate the period to stress his audience’s distance from it, Richardson and screenwriter John Osbourne (who also wrote A Look Back in Anger) employed all sorts of modern storytelling devices—primarily sight gags borrowed from silent comedies—to create common ground between the past and present. The film ends up simplifying a lot of Fielding’s rich plotting and characterization, though it’s still fun on its own terms.

A silent film-inspired, quick edit, slapstick prologue punctuated by explicative intertitles and a sprightly harpsichord accompaniment sets the irreverent, whimsical tone for Tony Richardson’s freeverse adaptation of Henry Fielding’s beloved eighteenth century novel, Tom Jones, transforming the beloved comedy of manners satire as a giddy fusion of burlesque and Keystone Kops epic adventure.
