Friends of the Dickens Forum,

	[log in to unmask] adds a bibliographical item to our recent
post on "Little Dorrit," the version first shown on BBC late last year:
There is a fascinating article on the film in DICKENS STUDIES ANNUAL,
Vol. 22: "Inimitable Double Vision: Dickens, <Little Dorrit>,
Photography, Film."

It's the 1987 Sands Film release starring Alec Guinness (Dorrit) and
Derek Jacobi (Clennam).

[Ed. Note: We recall Grahame Smith's largely hostile consideration of the
six-hour 1987 version in his _Dickens and the Dream of Cinema_, Chapter
Eight, 2003.]
