All depends, therefore, in the making of a film from this story, on the re-creation of this atmosphere in dramatic terms. It cannot be said that Brian Desmond Hurst has been altogether successful in this respect.

Though Dickens' frank sentimentality calls for broad treatment, Brian Desmond Hurst's direction is too often heavy as well.

At a reasonably short 85 minutes, this is nevertheless a complete experience, and the strength and depth of its drama makes it the most memorable of any adaptation of the tale.
