Before they made The Philadelphia Story, George Cukor, Cary Grant and Katharine Hepburn teamed up for this decidedly less flattering look at the life of the upper class.

Character dramas are often at their best when exploring inside worlds and not running free outside.

Starring Katharine Hepburn and Cary Grant in top form, George Cukor's serio comedy is the second and best version of the play.

Old fashioned Grant/Hepburn classic.

Cukor's direction here can best be described as savvy: Holiday develops in a witty, funny way, and its themes unfold as the movie progresses.

A romantic comedy with a serious undertone that could be called ahead-of-its-time.

This is my favorite George Cukor movie, and a perennial New Year's Eve classic.

Charming and melancholic, Holiday %u2026 breezing by in comparison to the more loquacious %u2026 banter-fest, The Philadelphia Story.

This is one of Grant's best performances and one of the best film's Cukor directed.

Decent Films Guide

Why is The Philadelphia Story so well known, while the equally unforgettable Holiday, from the same director, writers, and leads, suffers comparative neglect?

Nick's Flick Picks

Spellbinding without being a mystery, ravishing without being ornate, heartachy despite being a lovely comedy, and full of surprise gestures and unexpected flights of feeling.

Cukor's elegant grasp of the original drama ensures a silkily smooth transition from stage to screen.

Hepburn seems more forced each year, but the film is good.
