The infamous story of Benjamin Barker, aka Sweeney Todd, who sets up a barber shop in London which is the basis for a sinister partnership with his fellow tenant, Mrs. Lovett.
Jayne Wisener was nineteen years old at the time of filming. The filmmakers refused her, because they thought Wisener was too mature for portraying the fifteen-year-old Johanna. The actress sent some pictures of herself without make-up, and then they cast her.
I have sailed the world, beheld its wonders, from the Dardanelles to the mountains of Peru. But there's no place like London.
Sweeney Todd: No, there's no place like London.
Anthony Hope: Mr. Todd?
Sweeney Todd: You are young. Life has been kind to you. You will learn.
Because of the actress's real life pregnancy and filming out of order, Mrs. Lovett's chest size varies greatly throughout the movie.
