This is an early film of Charles Dickens' classic that follows the life of orphan Pip (George P. Breakston as young Pip and Phillips Holmes as older Pip) who is the foster child of blacksmith Joe Gargery (Alan Hale) and his not-so-nice wife, Mrs. Joe (Rafaela Ottiano) who befriends and comes to the aid of escaped convict Magwitch (Henry Hull). Pip falls in love with his childhood friend Estrella (Jane Wyatt) who is being raised by the bitter Mrs. Havisham (Florence Reed) to have higher expectations for her life than those of Pip. Later, Pip gains wealth through the help of a mysterious benefactor who, it turns out, is Magwitch repaying Pip for his friendship, and, by story's end, Pip is doing well in the Victorian world of the social elite.
