David Copperfield (8-Jan-1935)|
Director: George Cukor
Writers: Hugh Walpole; Howard Estabrook
From novel: David Copperfield by Charles Dickens
Musical Score by: Herbert Stothart
Producer: David O. Selznick
David Copperfield suffers the death of his parents, a cruel stepfather, and employment as a child laborer; he makes his way to Aunt Betsy, a spinster who can't much stand boys. The 800-page Dickens novel is difficult to adapt to screen; necessarily some characters had to be omitted. This adaptation does better than any other. Received Oscar nominations for Best Picture, Best Assistant Director, and Best Editing.
