Charles Dickens (1812 - 1870)
Writing Genius

No character created by Charles Dickens will ever be forgotten!

His memorable novels have moved and captivated generations through books and now even movies.

I have to say though, that his books are grossly belittled by feeble (in comparison) modern-day films, no matter how well-made and extravagant the film may be.

charles dickens Charles Dickens Collection

Don't get me wrong, there are a number of terrific films that will impress even the most modern of audiences, my only point is to highlight the importance of reading his works and never assume that just because we may have watched "the movie", somehow we know and understand the novel(s).

A Victorian Writer

He was born Charles John Huffam Dickens on February 7, 1812 and died June 9, 1870.

He certainly lived during the ages to which most lovers of history I know would love to visit, the Victorian Ages.

The following films, along with Charles Dickens ' works, take you as close to that great time in history as very few works of the imagination ever will.

Find great and hard-to-find movies on eBay..

There's a lot of reasons I buy from eBay, here are my top 2.

1. Price, you simply can't beat it. You can even buy most movies for the same price it would take you to rent them from Amazon and iTunes.

2. Find almost any movie. In the process of building World History Movies.com I learned that lesson quite well, eBay is the first place I look when I am trying to find a rare film.
