Tom Jones

Directed by Tony Richardson

In this adaptation of Henry Fielding’s novel Albert Finney followed his breakthrough role in Saturday Night, Sunday Morning with a very different role as Tom Jones. Built around Finney’s performance, Jones’s romantic adventures combine bawdy comedy with a range of stylistic flourishes that have helped make it one of the most fondly remembered films of the early 1960s. The film won Oscars for Best Film, Best Director and Best Adapted Screenplay.
