About Holiday

Year Released:

Director George Cukor famously collaborated with Cary Grant and Katherine Hepburn in The Philadelphia Story, but the renown of that film often overshadows their earlier – and equally great – collaboration in Holiday. Grant plays Johnny Chase, a man who has elevated himself from humble beginnings to wealth and stature. When he meets his fiancé’s family (specifically her free-spirited sister, played by Hepburn), he begins to question the values of work, money, leisure, and social standing. At once a hilarious screwball farce and an insightful critique of Depression-era social mobility, Holiday is an underrated gem from three Hollywood legends.

Introduction is being provided by Landon Palmer, PhD Candidate in the Department of Communication and Culture.
