Still image from the film Holiday

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.
