Expert Review Hobson's Choice - DVD Review
By: Dan Schneider Reviews
Published on: 2/5/2009 10:28 PM
Having grown up on the more well known films of David Lean, from his 1940s period pieces, like Great Expectations and Oliver Twist, to his famed epics, The Bridge On The River Kwai, Lawrence Of Arabia, and Dr. Zhivago, I was surprised to learn that he even made comedies. In fact, he only made two, 1945’s Blithe Spirit, based on a Noel Coward play, and the film under review, 1954’s Hobson’s Choice (Lean’s last black and white film), based upon a 1916 play of the same title by Harold the full review
