In 1836 young Charles Dickens was commissioned to write a series of humorous stories about the misadventures of the members of a fictional English social club. Dickens called this organization the PICKWICK CLUB, named after his central character, one Samuel Pickwick. He and his friends set out on a cross-country journey, and through a series of innocent misunderstandings, they wind up entangled in a comedy of errors that builds to monumental proportions. The tone of the tale turns serious when Pickwick is briefly consigned to a debtor's prison, a place which only Dickens could describe in the full measure of its hopelessness and horror. And only this picture could capture the flavor of this literary classic so tellingly. Pickwick and his friends Snodgrass, Winkle, Mr. Jingle and all the others come vividly to life, enacted by a peerless British cast. Received Academy Award Nomination for Best Costume Design, Black-and-White.
