Movie Info

The musical Mr. Quilp was based on one of Dickens' grimmest works, The Old Curiosity Shop, which has as its highlight the death of its heroine. The principal character is a villain, a hunchbacked usurer who wishes to take over the business of an antique dealer. Anthony Newley plays the horrid Mr. Quilp, and is also responsible for the music. Mr. Quilp was produced by Readers Digest Magazine. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Critic Reviews for Mr. Quilp (Old Curiosity Shop)

All Critics (1)

Mr. Quilp is neither as charming or as exciting as it would like to be; yet it emerges a partial winner by remaining true to its own darkly Dickensian inclinations.
