    Mr. Hobbs Takes a Vacation

    Truly entertaining James Stewart film, and though he could easily carry a film like this by himself, it's immensely gratifying to have the legend that is Maureen O'Hara playing his wife. What a duo to star together! Hobbs (Stewart) is first seen fighting traffic and smoke-filled elevators in the city of St. Louis, Missouri where he has returned to work after vacationing on the West Coast. He gathers up his secretary to take notes of his vacation like he's reciting…

This…

    Here it is. After seeing this a zillion times, I need to review this gem. It's only one of the very best movies EVER! Kurt Russell is the swaggering blowhard, bumbling but heroic truck driver, Jack Burton, who gives out advice from the CB in his semi-truck The Pork Chop Express, and that's between adventures. The adventure we see takes place in, of course, Little China in San Francisco, where Jack helps his best friend Wang Chi (Dennis Dun) try…
