Hobson's Choice

David Lean Regno Unito, 1954

SpacePirate's rating of the film Hobson il tiranno

Another mini-triumph from the great Lean. Laughton is something to behold in this drunken comic turn. The oldest daughter supposedly being 30 but being played by a 45 yr old is the only real drawback to this film, although De Branzie (spelling?) gives a grand performance, making it hard to imagine someone else pulling it off. All in all, great work by all involved, and an underrated comic gem.
