The humour of the shop and the pilgrimage counterbalance the tragic and sentimental story of Little Nell.
The story is rich in Dickensian characters, including Mrs Jarley, Quilp, Dick Swiveller, and the Marchioness.
A Disney production of The Old Curiosity Shop has recently finished shotting in Ireland, starring James Fox, Peter Ustinov, and Tom Courtenay.
