Rating: B -- Selznick's last production before leaving MGM to form his own company, this lavish film is an eloquent version of Dickens classic, benefiting from Ronald Colman's suave performance and the studio's reliable stock company. Full Review
Mar 20, 2009
Rating: 4/5 -- Several of the big crowd scenes, especially the storming of the Bastille, are big-budget showstoppers with thousands of extras filling the frame in a way CGI still can't match. Full Review

Rating: 4/5 -- Selznick managed to create the cinematic equivalent of "the best of times" without a downside.
Jun 15, 2007
Rating: 3.5/5 -- It's everything I expect from a Dickens adaptation: a grand, sweeping storyline; impeccable period costumes and sets; and colorful villains and selfless heroes. Full Review

Description by OLDIES.com:

Lavish and well-acted production of Dickens' 1857 novel of the French Revolution. Ronald Colman plays the flippant lawyer who lends aid to the victims of the Reign of Terror.
