Movie Info

Abused by his cruel stepfather (Basil Rathbone) after his mother dies, young David Copperfield (Freddie Bartholomew) first finds shelter in the convivial home of Mr. Micawber (W.C. Fields) and later grows up under the protection of his kindhearted Aunt Betsey (Edna May Oliver). As an adult, David meets the beautiful Agnes Wickfield (Madge Evans) and attempts to free her struggling family's business from villainous blackmailer Uriah Heep (Roland Young) and his henchmen.

    Not a bad flix, looks great. I never knew Dickens wrote a story where a orphan boy meets nothing but good people.

    Not for all tastes, perhaps, but easily one of the best adaptations of a book to the screen I've ever seen. I had just finished the book when I learned that W. C. Fields had played Micawber in this version. It's the perfect role for him. I've always loved his work, and this is his best work.

    Not bad but not a great film. I don't think anyone has done justice to David Copperfield as of yet. W.C. Fields is underused in his role.
