Film Picture of the Week: Oliver Twist(1948)
This is a production still from LIFE magazine of David Lean on the set of Oliver Twist in 1947. Lean started off as a editor so I can't tell if this is a portable editing machine or the biggest camera in the world. It's probably a camera because of the magazine, but he looks like he's looking at a playback. Oliver Twist was released in 1948 and although there are many versions of this Dickens classic not one has even come close to Lean's masterpiece.
