PAVILION, SELSEY. THE story of two brothers - one a thief and killer and the other a struggling young doctor-is told in "RECOIL". Stars of the picture are Kieron Moore, Elizabeth Sellars and Edward Underdown, and the plot deals with a young girl's determination to bring to justice the killer of her father. Bing Crosby. Bob Hope and Dorothy Lamour appear in "ROAD TO SINGAPORE" one of the early "Road" films that helped to make the series famous. Crosby and Hope are seen as usual as lovers of women, but haters of matrimony. David Lean's British comedy "HOBSON'S CHOICE," starring Charles Laughton, John Mills and Brenda de Banzie, tells the classic story of how Henry Hobson, a prosperous Lancashire bootmaker, is left with three daughters when his wife dies. He has plans for marrying off his two younger daughters but when he discovers that they have already chosen their future husbands and that he is expected to contribute handsome dowries, he refuses. Maggie, his eldest daughter, unexpectedly rebels against her father's decision and decides to marry Willie Mossop who makes the shoes for Hobson. Together, she and Willie set up in a business of their own in opposition to Hobson. Hilarious situations follow.
