TCM is going to run what may very well be my favorite Charles Laughton film (although it’s not an easy task to pick just one, what with The Old Dark House , Payment Deferred , The Sign of the Cross , Ruggles of Red Gap , Les misérables , Tales of Manhattan , The Big Clock , Witness for the Prosecution  and Advise & Consent  all vying for attention), Hobson's Choice , tonight at 11pm EST. I honestly can’t remember the last time I saw this—it was probably not too long after I got my DirecTV system back in 1998, when IFC ran it.
The movie is available on DVD, I know—it was released by Criterion in February of this year. And it’s currently on sale at DeepDiscount.com as part of a massive Criterion blow-out for the low, low price of $21.97…but alas, I am currently without funds at the present time.
So I’m glad I’m getting an opportunity to grab it from TCM – by gum!
