Henry Hobson runs a successful bootmaker's shop in nineteenth-century Salford. A widower with a weakness for the pub opposite, he tries forcefully to rule the lives of his three unruly daughters. When he decrees 'no marriages' to avoid the expensive matter of settlements, eldest daughter Maggie rebels and sets her sights on Will Mossop, Hobson's star bootmaker.

David Lean never disappoints (well, I'm not crazy about Summertime, but then again I owe it a fresh viewing). One of his few comedies, Hobson's Choice is a delightful, breezy romp that both lampoons and celebrates several facts of the British spirit. The simple plot is propped up by three wonderful characters, expertly played by Charles Laughton, Brenda De Banzie and John Mills. Laughton's slapsticky inebriation is a little much for me, but it pays off with a terrific d.t.'s scene.

Hobson's Choice is one of those rarest of movies in which script, directing and acting compete neck and neck for supremacy. A fantastic movie, hilariously funny and thoroughly touching.

A goofy comedy about social mores and gender roles, with Brenda De Banzie steamrolling the men around her. Written and played wonderfully, with typical sterling marks by Lean.

Always a pleasure to watch Laughton and his antics, although he may have gone overboard a bit on the inebriated scenes.
