MR. HOBBS TAKES A VACATION (1962) (BLU-RAY)
Starring:  Maureen O'Hara, John Saxon, James Stewart, Fabian
Directed By:  Henry Koster
Composed By:  Henry Mancini

“Togetherness, all-American family style, is given a gently irreverent poke in the ribs…The film is peppered with refreshingly sharp, sophisticated references and quips.”—Variety

“It is suggested in this wacky domestic report that togetherness is strictly for the birds…The Mr. Hobbs of the title, played beguilingly by James Stewart, is very much of this opinion as far as his own brood is concerned…in the end, it is concluded that, for all this, the family is still strong.” —Bosley Crowther, The New York Times

The apparently light-hearted comedy, Mr. Hobbs Takes a Vacation (1962), reveals an intriguing darker side in its tale of a family get-together gone awry. Little kids are monstrous, older kids suffer from self-esteem problems, grown-up kids have marital difficulties of distressingly diverse natures—and all are presided over by a decidedly grumpy (if great) James Stewart, waging the familial wars with a more idealistic helpmate (Maureen O’Hara) at his side. Directed and written by a pair of Hollywood veterans (Henry Koster and Nunnally Johnson, respectively), this quirky film features a standout score by the superb Henry Mancini, available on this Twilight Time release as an isolated track.
