The action takes place during the filming of the musical, Oliver! in 1967. The film was released to great acclaim in 1968 and garnered awards and Oscars for its director Carol Reed (a man), Ron Moody as Fagin and Jack Wild as the Artful Dodger.
It was a massive shoot and Carol Reed took over all the sounds stages at Shepperton Studios and built parts of the set in each one of them. Bloomsbury Square was created almost full size (for the number ‘Who will Buy’) in the studio lot.
