Timeless and Politically incorrect,
This review is from: Hobson's Choice [VHS]  (VHS Tape)
Hobson's Choice is also my all-time choice - released in 1953 about the 1800's in Salford and yet as modern in its comedy as anything made today. John Mills and Brenda de Banzie are superb in their charm and innocence. Laughton plays his best part as the ogre of a father (come father-in-law). The wonderful innocence of John Mills (Willie) on his wedding night with lines like: "Maggie's not the sort you get familiar with..." and followed in the morning with: "By Gum!" Watch it, you'll love it and the black and white just makes it better - honest! Since my review they have released the DVD - and I immediately bought two copies! Brilliant!
