As a possible alternative to the Academy Awards program this evening for television viewing, there is a PBS broadcast of The Old Curiosity Shop. Also there is PBS Masterpiece information online about the novel and the film along with a synopsis and a two-part interview of Tatiana Holway entitled “A Scholar’s Perspective”
A Wikipedia web page shows a picture of a London shop that might have been an inspiration for the depiction of the shop in the novel.
