The Immortal Story of Love and Intrigue During French Revolution!
The exciting story of Dr. Manette, who escapes the horrors of the infamous Bastille prison in Paris. The action switches between London and Paris on the eve of the revolution where we witness 'the best of times and the worst of times' - love, hope, the uncaring French Aristocrats and the terror of a revolutionary citizen's army intent on exacting revenge.

Standard Dickensian dribbeldy-poop extolling the joys of hearth and home. I may be a little prejudiced, but is death really better than a successful career and a bachelor's life? Excellent performances (especially Edna May Oliver and Blanche Yurka) elevate the material somewhat, and I'm always surprised by Dickens' wit, but this is definitely a product of his time.
