The Sound Barrier / Hobson's Choice

synopsis


Hobson's Choice: Henry Horatio Hobson (Charles Laughton) is a tyrannical, drunken widowed bootmaker responsible for the wellbeing of his three unruly daughters. His rule is challenged by eldest daughter Maggie (Brenda de Banzie) who marries his star bootmaker and sets up a rival shop. But will this competition make Hobson relent and achieve freedom for her sisters? Also stars Prunella Scales. The Sound Barrier: Starring Ralph Richardson, Ann Todd and Nigel Patrick, this true story charts the commitment and bravery of the men who risked their lives in pursuit of supersonic flight. John Ridgefield (Richardson) is an air-craft manufacturer obsessed with breaking the sound barrier, even though his obsession costs him his humanity, the love of his family and the ultimate sacrifice - his son.
