From The Third Man to Oliver! is a pretty vertiginous collapse, even for twenty years in the British film industry. Reed is craftsman enough to make an efficient family entertainment out of Lionel Bart's musical, but not artist enough to put back any of Dickens' teeth which Bart had so assiduously drawn.
