Hobson's Choice - 60th Anniversary Edition
  • Description

    Henry Horatio Hobson (Academy Award -Winner Charles Laughton) is the owner of a well-established boot shop in nineteenth century Salford, Lancashire and the father of three daughters. The oldest, Maggie (Brenda De Banzie), shoulders both home and business responsibilities while Hobson whiles the time away at the local pub. The younger sisters are both being courted by neighbours, but Hobson refuses to give the couples settlements. Maggie becomes tired of his oafish behaviour and decides to take matters into her hands by seeking a husband.

    Much to the hilarity and consternation of her father, aged spinster Maggie sets her sights on shy Will Mossop (John Mills), Hobson's master boot-maker. Mossop is at first stunned by the suggestion, but eventually agrees to Maggie's authoritative persuasion, and together they set up a rival boot shop. A timeless masterpiece that marked a temporary return to David Lean's period adaptations of Dickens (Great Expectations, Oliver Twist). The film went on to win multiple awards.

    This film has been digitally restored to its former glory.

A great film superbly presented!

'Hobson's Choice' has an engaging plot and is superbly acted. The picture and sound on this new blu-ray are excellent and have made a massive difference to the film - which should now be more enjoyable than ever. The extras on the disc are on the light side, but I would guess that that shouldn't be any more than a very minor quibble for any buyer who wants a pristine copy of the film in their collection.
