Great Expectations is a 1974 film made for television based on the Charles Dickens novel of the same name. It was directed by Joseph Hardy, with screenwriter Sherman Yellen and music by Maurice Jarre, starring Michael York as Pip, Simon Gipps-Kent as Young Pip and Sarah Miles as Estella. The film, made for US television and released to cinemas in the UK, broke with tradition by having the same actress (the thirty-three-year-old Sarah Miles) play both the younger and older Estella. It was filmed in Eastmancolor and it was entered into the 9th Moscow International Film Festival in 1975.[1]
