A Tale of Two Cities | 1980
Dickens' historical romance set against a backdrop of the French Revolution gets its seventh filming, and probably its most lavish, with Chris Sarandon in the dual roles of Sydney Carton and Charles Darnay. Kenneth More plays one of his last roles as Jarvis Lorry, an agent for the Franco-British banking house and a family friend of Lucy Mannette, the girl who loves Darnay. Flora Robson also gave her last performance in this film. An Emmy Award nomination went to Olga Lehmann for her costume designs.
