Earliest Charles Dickens film uncovered in UK

The oldest surviving (black-and-white) movie featuring a character in one of Charles Dickens' well-known writings has been found in the UK. Like Victor Hugo in France, Charles Dickens in the UK was empathetic with the less well'-off and less privileged folks who were marginalised in their societies dominated by the wealthy and powerful ruling elites. The two writers passed away before COMINTERN was formed in 1919. Some 67 years after COMINTERN was disbanded by Uncle Joe in 1943, many forms of social discontents still break out in Britain and France.
