IA #74: Holiday (1930)

 Holiday (1930) on IMDb

Holiday is a romantic comedy about a young man who decides to get married after a whirlwind courtship, then has to reconcile his free-thinking lifestyle with the tradition of his wealthy fiancée’s family. Ann Harding was nominated for a best actress Oscar for her performance as the fiancée’s sister.

Holiday was based on a Broadway play by the same name which ran for over 200 performances in 1928-29. Katherine Hepburn understudied for the main female role in the play, then co-starred with Cary Grant in the 1938 movie remake. Edward Everett Horton played the same role in both film versions. I’m always happy to see another comedy in the Internet Archive Top 100.
