Synopsis

Tom Jones was a foundling ... a loser from birth ... "born to be hung." Everything he touched turned to lead—or fell on his foot. This smooth-flowing dramatization of the famed 18th-century novel portrays the rowdy, bawdy, racy plot and raucous characters that made Henry Fielding famous and the movie version a box-office champion. Tom, the illegitimate ward of Squire Allworthy, is in love with his beautiful neighbor, Sophia. Although Sophia's father admires and envies Tom for his reputation as a brawling, womanizing, thieving daredevil, he wouldn't consider allowing his daughter to marry such a scoundrel. Instead, Sophia is betrothed to Blifil, Allworthy's sniveling heir. Since Tom is seduced by most of the women and nearly murdered by all of the men, it's not surprising to find him on the gallows at the end of this fast-paced comedy.
