The classic Charles Dickens tale of an orphan boy who escapes the horrors of the orphanage only to be taken in by a band of thieves and pickpockets.
This movie featured a young Timothy Spall in the role of 1st Constable. Spall played Fagin in "Oliver Twist" (2007).
Please, Sir, I want some more.
Mr. Bumble: What?
Oliver Twist: Please, Sir, I want some more.
Mr. Bumble: He wants some more!
On the original VHS release, for unspecified reasons, the pivotal scene in which Oliver asks for more gruel (in this case for a starving friend) was completely cut, as were the scenes that immediately followed, with the workhouse selling Oliver to Mr. Sowerberry and Oliver's first day as Sowerberry's apprentice. This added up to ten minutes (almost to the exact second) of footage eliminated.
