Plot Summary
After his mother dies, Oliver Twist (Richard Charles) spends his days slaving away in a squalid workhouse. Having had enough, Oliver runs off and finds sanctuary with a gang of young thieves led by grown-up Fagin (George C. Scott). When the orphan picks the pocket of Mr. Brownlow (Michael Hordern) and the rich man takes an interest in him, it seems Oliver may have earned his ticket out of poverty -- that is, until thug Bill Sikes (Tim Curry) kidnaps the boy for a criminal scheme.
