Product Description

Product Description

Johnny Case (Cary Grant), a free-thinking financier, has finally found the girl of his dreams -- Julia Seton (Doris Nolan), the spoiled daughter of a socially prominent millionaire -- and she's agreed to marry him! But when Johnny plans a holiday for the two to enjoy life while they are still young, his fiancée has other plans - she wants Johnny to work in her father's bank! As he tries to decide whether to follow his head or his heart, Johnny can rely on at least one Seton in his corner. She's Linda Seton (Katherine Hepburn), the down-to-earth younger sister of his soon-to-be-wife, and she likes Johnny just the way he is.

This absolutely charming, wholly engaging romantic comedy is the hidden gem of the four collaborations of Katharine Hepburn and Cary Grant. Most everyone's seen The Philadelphia Story, but few know of this unorthodox, hilarious comedy of life among the rich and privileged, though both were Broadway hits by playwright Philip Barry. Grant plays the happy-go-lucky Johnny Case, a self-made man with a dream in his heart of making just enough money to retire on and then traveling around the world. Johnny proposes to the lovely Julia (Doris Nolan) in Lake Placid, but it isn't until he comes to pay her a visit in New York that he discovers she's the daughter of a wealthy industrialist. Although his nonconformity ruffles the feathers of Julia's stuffy father, he's soon won over the whole family--most notably, Julia's rebellious sister Linda (Hepburn), who in becoming Johnny's greatest advocate finds herself irresistibly drawn to him. There's more going on here than a spiffy, surface romance, with Johnny's free-spirit determination going up against rock-hard establishment values, and director George Cukor plays up the social politics of the story just as well as the wonderful, exquisite romance. Hepburn and Grant, as always, are perfectly paired, and given able support by Lew Ayres as the black sheep of Hepburn's family, and Edward Everett Horton and Jean Dixon as Grant's longtime pals. Filmed previously in 1930; Hepburn understudied the role of Linda on Broadway and used a scene from the play in her first screen test. --Mark Englehart --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

The last time I watched this movie from beginning to end, I was quite young and I didn't fully comprehend the appeal of Grant & Hepburn yet. I ordered this DVD on a whim from Amazon because it was one of the few Hepburn films I didn't own yet. Boy, am I glad I ended up purchasing it! I can't believe I didn't like it back in the day! I mean really, what's NOT to like about this classic romantic comedy? The cast is brilliant and the chemistry between Grant & Hepburn was electric. The film itself is fast-paced and never drags and it holds the viewer's attention solidly until the final credits roll. If you're a fan of either Cray Grant or Katharine Hepburn (or both, as I am), you'll absolutely love this movie! I consider it one of the best films they made together (and they made quite a few).

Go on, buy it! You know you want to :D

I had never heard of this film before I saw it on commercial TV one night. Since then, it's been in my top 10 of movies that I watch when I want to get into a good mood.

Katherine Hepburn and Cary Grant are at their best. Edward Everett Horton and Jean Dixon are the people I want to be my best friends. Lew Ayres, the drunk brother and his unexpected line: "Walk, don't run..." --- caused me to laugh with milk in my mouth and you guessed it, caused me to have the milk explode out my nose. Drinking milk has never been the same since this movie. A comedy for a gentler set. A romance movie for those who believe fate eventually points us towards those we should truly love --- if we have the sense to see them.

It is not as zany as Bringing Up Baby, or as ultimately offensive as The Philadelphia Story (which started the disappointing trend of humilitaing Hepburn's independence, eccentricity and intelligence by her usually maddening, uninteresting, conservative and 'down-to-earth' 'a woman must be a woman' leading men). Holiday allows Hepburn to be herself and celebrates her independence instead of making it a laughing matter. Her leading man, (Hepburn's finest co-star, Cary Grant), falls in love with her for herself, she is not 'reformed' or pulled down to earth as she inevitably was in her Spencer Tracy movies, where one was always made to feel that she was funny, but ultimately not a woman until Spence put her in her place, at his feet.
Lew Ayres, Henry Daniell and Edward Everett Horton give fine supporting performances. This movie really is a must-see. Hepburn and Grant have an infectious, sometimes unabashedly sexual, chemistry. Its Hepburn playing herself (or the image one has come to identify with her). She is also less eager to irritate and steal scenes. She lets the script do its job. She also never looked better (except in Woman of the Year, and The Lion in Winter).
Watch it!

A real gem of a movie. A battle royale of creativity versus conservatism. Cary Grant is engaged to be married to a rich girl and seeks the approval of her straight laced father , who wants to install him in the family firm , where his creative musician son is being strangled of any chance of breaking free. Katherine Hepburn is the devoted sister of the bride to be. When the father of the bride attempts to plan the honeymoon making it into a virtual business trip Cary finally sees that he must escape , clearing the way for himself and Katherine. Witty dialogue abounds , and some of the best is delivered by Carys' professor friend Edward Everett Horton and his free spirited wife. A joy to watch with its' " money isn't everything" theme. Enthusiastic creativity triumphs over stodginess , which may not be real life , but which is inspirational great fun to view.

It was a strike of luck or was it? For our magnificently handsome Cary Grant to be cast in one of my favored directors , George Cukor's movies. Here, in "Holiday", Cary Grant is dressed to please the most critical eye. Again he is in his role, full force, right from the very beginning and believe me I am glued to the screen all the way to the end. George Cukor was a refined man and in Cary Grant he has magnificently refined, young thespian, with him all the way on the journey through entire movie to raving success. Cary Grant showmanship in acrobatics learned in his time at the "Hippodrome" has you marveling at precision, elegance and awe inspiring timing. It is a movie, that takes you back to the golden era of glamour, grant social gatherings and social significance status. I truly, immensely love it.

"Holiday" is a wonderful film.....by far the best of the 4 Cary Grant/Katharine Hepburn collaborations. "Bringing up Baby" is great too, but "Holiday" is my sentimental favorite. It's funny, sweet, and stands up well to repeated viewing. It deserves to be on DVD (Let's Hope Sooner Than Later). This is a must have for Cary Grant Fans.

This is truly an enchanting movie - and one of my absolute favorites! It features a witty script, hilarious moments and excellent performances from two Hollywood legends. Furthermore, unlike..say..The Philadelphia Story (which I also greatly enjoyed), this movie has a much sweeter and more genuine tone, even though it is not as slick and polished.
Essentially, Holiday is about a bright young man (Cary Grant) who rose from poverty into a career in finances (while still maintaining a lighthearted and normal attitude towards the accumulation of money) - and his encounter with a very rich family and its two daughters. When he meets the eldest daughter at a resort, he begins dating her, having no idea of her immense wealth. He faces many difficulties from her family, who is obsessed with money and finances. Finally, he is accepted among them because of his promising future...but he knows that he does not want to devote himself to business alone. Along the way, he also meets the magical younger sister (Katherine Hepburn) who is the rebel among the family, a self-proclaimed black sheep. To say anymore would be to give too much away...
Anyhow, Holiday features great performances from both stars. Cary Grant is funny, charming, and believable as Johnny Case - perhaps especially so because his real story was so similar to that of his character (Grant also was a self-made man who reached Hollywood after escaping from his lower class home in England and joining the circus). Katherine Hepburn is energetic and spunky as Linda, and she and Grant are perfect together.
All in all - this movie is wonderful and very enchanting. Cary Grant even shows off his acrobatic training and does a few flips in it...what more could you ask for in a movie?
