Tea with Pip

A still from the film Great Expectations (1946) with John Mills as Pip and Valerie Hobson as Estella, taken from a 1951 adaptation of Dickens’ novel by Lou Bunce of New Jersey, who wrote in the introduction, “To make the story briefer and more understandable to the average reader, vocabulary has been simplified, colloquial or out-of-date expressions have been omitted, and lengthy descriptions shortened.”
