* PragmaticAdaptation: Besides dropping a lot of plot points in order to squeeze the story into a 74-minute movie, the film fixes the egregious [[ContrivedCoincidence Contrived Coincidences]] from the novel. The film omits the bits about Rose being Oliver's aunt and Mr. Browlow being Oliver's father's friend; they are simply nice people who wind up taking an interest in Oliver.

* DomesticAbuser: Bill Sikes, to Nancy; Noah Claypole, to Charlotte (to a certain extent, anyway; it's verbal, not phsyical); Widow Corney, to Mr Bumble; and Mrs Sowerberry, to Mr Sowerberry. The last two probably qualify more as HenpeckedHusband, but it's still portrayed as somewhat abusive.

** Edwin Leefort was on both ends of this. First he married a much older woman (Monks's mother) and theirs was a ''very'' unhappy union.

[[ValuesDissonance And he, married at about twenty to a thirty-year-old woman, was treated almost like a child sold to some old hag, while him taking interest in a nineteen-year old girl more than ten years later, was perfectly okay in terms of age]].
