I assume that this imposing edifice houses the brightest star in my firmament of earthly companions; I allude to Master David Copperfield.
David - the Man: Micawber!
Mr. Micawber: Copperfield!
David - the Man: Mr. Micawber, how wonderful to see you in Canterbury!
Mr. Micawber: Thank you, this successful conclusion...
Mr Micawber chases away David's tormentors and puts his arm around him, but the arm is gone in the next immediate shot. In all scenes with W.C. Fields there are indeed continuity errors that editing does not mask.
Film opens with the last sentence of Charles Dickens's preface to the original edition: "Like many fond parents, I have in my heart of hearts, a favourite child, and his name is David Copperfield."
