I finished reading Mister Pip about a week ago, and I’ll get around to writing my thoughts about it one of these days. The reason I chose to read it in the first place is due to the fact that it contains Great Expectations as a plot device, so, of course, I had to put it near the top of my TBR pile. I have enjoyed Dickens practically since I was old enough to read, and “Oliver!” was my favorite film when I was little kid. My favorite Dickens novel is David Copperfield, which I absolutely must reread very soon.
Film adaptations of Dickens novels abound, and I have seen quite a few of them, some good, some horrible. In honor of Mr. Dickens and Mister Pip, I have decided to hold a little contest to see how knowledgeable YOU are on the subject of Dickens movies. I will post photos of actors who have appeared in Dickens films. If you want to play, leave a comment listing the actor’s real name and the name of the character he played. (i.e. — John Travolta, Nicholas Nickelby). The first correct guesser of all the actors wins a choice of one of these fabulous prizes:
Are you ready? Here we go! And remember, I want the actor and the character he played. Good luck!
That’s all folks. Good luck!
