Abstract / Summary
Charles Laughton delivers a bravura performance as a Lancashire bootmaker who attempts to dictate his daughter’s choice of husband, only to find that she marries his downtrodden and simple-minded employee and starts a rival business. Set in the 1890s, this working class comedy by Harold Brighouse is wonderfully photographed by Jack Hildyard.
