Henry Hobson runs a successful bootmaker's shop in nineteenth-century Salford. A widower with a weakness for the pub opposite, he tries forcefully to run the lives of his three unruly daughters. When he decrees 'no marriages' to avoid the expensive matter of settlements, eldest daughter Maggie rebels and sets her sights on Will Mossop, Hobson's star bootmaker. Maggie and Will leave to start up in competition, and she then turns her mind to helping her sisters marry their chosen partners.

My Movie Diary 2017 (217 movies items)

"9 March. Henry Hobson, respectable proprietor of a boot shop must contend with his eldest daughter's plan of marrying their lowly boot maker and start her own business. Directed by David Lean, the movie is delightfully fun, of course, any movie is with the incomparable Charles Laughton."
