(NBC, 11/22/1974, 120 mins). A sumptuous remake of the Dickens classic that previously had been filmed in black and white in 1917, 1934, and 1946 (the definitive version). The latest “Expectations” was produced as a musical with an original score by Norman Sachs and Mel Mandel, but none of the songs appeared in the final print for reasons never explained.
