Holiday 1938 Katharine Hepburn Cary Grant Comedy Romance
Starring: Katharine Hepburn, Cary Grant, Doris Nolan
Free-thinking Johnny Case finds himself betrothed to a millionaire’s daughter. When her family, with the exception of black-sheep Linda and drunken Ned, want Johnny to settle down to big business, he rebels. Johnny would rather spend the early years of his life on holiday. With the help of his friends Nick and Susan Potter, he makes up his mind as to which is the better course and the better mate.
“Holiday” is an all-time Hepburn and Grant favorite. It is truly a classic directed by George Cukor and written by Broadway playwright Philip Barry.
What really sets the film apart as a comedy, is that the main characters are fully realized and complex. Cary Grant is Johnny, engaged to Hepburn’s shallow, but socially acceptable sister. Hepburn’s Linda is the black sheep of a vary ambitious, conceited family. It is her very humanity that makes her the “black sheep”. She spends half of the movie in love with Johnny, but her respect for her sister and decency thwart her desires.
Johnny wants to make his fortune as a young man, retire, and enjoy life. His fiancee attempts to control and manipulate him for her own ends and ambitions. There is a wonderful balance of drama, comedy, and heart in this movie.
