A lost film in its original form, this musical is based on Dickens' The Old Curiosity Shop.
Many locations are currently UNIDENTIFIED and some may be sets. Ardmore Studios in Bray, Co. Wicklow is mentioned on IMDB but this may be confused with another version of the story made in 1995 for television.
