Product Description

Holiday (1930)

Director:

 Edward H. Griffith

Writers:

 Philip Barry (play), Horace Jackson

Stars:

 Ann Harding, Mary Astor, Edward Everett Horton
 
The first of the filmizations of Philip Barry's play, Holiday centers around a society wedding. Julia Seton (Mary Astor) intends to marry John Case (Robert Ames), a young Wall Street lion with "radical" ideas that go against the grain of Julia's conservative family. Julia's freewheeling younger sister Linda (Ann Harding), thrilled at the prospect of the unorthodox Case shaking up her household, finds herself drawn to the young man herself. When John shows signs of toning down his recklessness and becoming just another stuffy old financier, Linda is crushed, but eventually the two free spirits are united. Edward Everett Horton, who plays an "idle rich" family friend in Holiday, recreated the role (albeit as a more responsible character) in the 1938 remake.

  1. Original screen version is so-so; done much better in 1938 3 Star Review

    Posted by on Sep 5th 2017

    This first screen version of the Phillip Barry play has nice performances by Ann Harding and Mary Astor, but the lackluster work of Robert Ames caused the film to falter. Edward Everett Horton plays the same role in this version as he did in 1938.
