Great Expectations – Film (1946). Directed by: David Lean. Based On Novels By Charles Dickens.

The film won critical raves upon release, many of them hailing it as the finest film yet made of a Charles Dickens novel. Great Expectations (1946) was the first of David Lean‘s two adaptations of Dickens classics (Oliver Twist followed in 1948). Lean realised the cinematic potential of the novel more skilfully than his predecessors and most of those that followed him. The result is one of the finest British literary adaptations, and one of the most acclaimed of all British films.
