Product Details

An unsung comic triumph from David Lean, Hobson�s Choice stars the legendary Charles Laughton as the harrumphing Henry Hobson, the owner of a boot shop in late Victorian northern England. With his haughty, independent daughter Maggie (Brenda De Banzie) decides to forge her own path, romantically and professionally, with none other than Henry�s prized bootsmith Will (a splendid John Mills), father and daughter find themselves head-to-head in a fiery match of wills. Equally charming and caustic, Hobson�s Choice, adapted from Harold Brighouse�s famous play, is filled to the brim with great performances and elegant, inventive camera work.
