(NBC, 3/15/1970, 120 mins). A moody, sentimental fifth film version of the Dickens classic (the first in nearly 35 years) with a stellar cast composed of the giants of the British acting community providing much needed support to the virtual unknown in the title role. Laurence Olivier’s cameo as Creakle won him an Emmy nomination.
