Most widely held works by Harry Secombe
Oliver! by Carol Reed( Visual )

72 editions published between 1968 and 2013 in 7 languages and held by 1,202 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Oliver is an orphan who escapes the cheerless life of the workhouse and takes to the streets of 19th Century London to seek his fortune. Taken in by a band of street urchins, Oliver's new friends include the lovable villain Fagan, his fiendish henchman Bill Sikes, and the loyal apprentice The Artful Dodger who all teach him to "Pick a pocket or two."
Oliver!( Visual )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 1,021 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A young orphan, Oliver is left to fend for himself until he is befriended by a band of young thieves who quickly train him in their craft. But Oliver is not content to be a thief--for he knows that life holds great joys and true happiness cannot be stolen--but must be earned. Arguably the last great old-fashioned movie musical to receive near-universal critical acclaim, Oliver! first hit screens more than 37 years ago. As transformed into a film, the timeless West End and Broadway show remains incredibly faithful to the classic work of literature by Charles Dickens, dank and dark, an anomaly of song-and-dance cinema. A film of many facets, it is both a warts-and-all view of Victorian London, an adaptation of a classic novel, a salient slice of significant social commentary, and a rip-roaring tune-filled toe tapper to boot
