Too risky for penny-pinching British financiers, Tom Jones was rescued by United Artists, and its massive success released a flood of American money into the British film industry. Richardson's England is full of 18th century atmospherics, but its big attraction was the bawdy licence it allowed '60s permissiveness. Osborne's courageous hatchet job on Fielding's 1,000 page classic novel and Finney's gutsy performance add up to produce an enjoyable piece of irreverent entertainment.
