About the book:

This comprehensive survey of the screen adaptations of the works of the great author covers film worldwide, television, and video dramatizations from 1897 to 1993. While it provides a critical commentary on all noteworthy productions, Charles Dickens on the Screen also contains a catalog of more than 130 movies and 220 TV presentations with cast lists and production credits, and includes many hitherto unrecorded borrowings, spoofs, and satires from the famous stories. Pointer examines the problems inherent in dramatizing Dickens' novels for the screen, and traces the development of the adaptations from tiny extracts in the earliest silent movies to the full-scale television serials of the present day, covering virtually a century of international productions.
