After watching David Lean’s film, I wanted to make sure I knew the meaning of a “Hobson’s Choice.”
What it, really?
A Hobson’s Choice is a choice between something that’s probably undesirable and nothing. “Take it or leave it..”
In the play and the movie, at the end, Henry Hobson, fittingly, is left with a Hobson’s Choice.
