Dirk Bogarde, at the height of his matinee-idol fame, gives one of his most accomplished performances as Sydney Carton in this handsomely mounted version of the Dickens classic.

An impressive British adaptation of Dickens' ever-popular story of tragic self-sacrifice, with Dirk Bogarde, then at the height of his matinee-idol fame, giving one of his most accomplished performances as Sydney Carton. Handsomely mounted, crisply shot in black and white and directed with sensitivity, verve and attention to detail by Ralph Thomas, this Tale is a worthy addition to the Dickens film canon.
