Summary, etc.:
Winner* of four Academy Awards®, including Best Picture, and featuring a cast of superbplayers (Boxoffice) headed by the Oscar®-nominated** Albert Finney and Susannah York, this wickedly funny classic has been hailed as 'the best comedy ever made (Newsweek)! No one has ever lived as freely and carelessly as Tom Jones. Abandoned at birth and raised by a wealthy squire, Tom romps through English society leading a lusty life of brawling and bed-hopping until his bawdy behavior causes him to be sent away from his family, his home and the only womanhe's ever truly loved. But some men never learn, and soon Tom's escapades land him in the company of reckless scoundrels, the boudoirs of more women and, finally, in jail. Will Tom's charm save him or will the gallows be his last swing?-- back of container.
