Oliver Twist is brought up in the workhouse along with all the other orphans - until the day he asks for more gruel. An outraged Mr Bumble takes Oliver out into the street to be sold, beginning an adventure that will take Oliver to the depths of London's criminal underworld and the heights of wealthy London society.
Charles Dickens' novel is brought to vivid life in this 1922 version starring Jackie Coogan (fresh from his success the year before in Charlie Chaplin's The Kid), and the great Lon Chaney, the man of a thousand faces, as Fagin.
Followed by a Laurel and Hardy short comedy.
