On This Day...Holiday (1938)

Today in 1938, saw the release of Cary Grant's 31st full length feature film, Holiday.

This was his 3rd film with leading lady Katharine Hepburn, playing the role of Linda Seton.

The title of the film when released in Great Britain was  Free to Live, Unconventional Linda.

The story is about a restless Johnny Case (Grant), wanting to take time out and see the world
He becomes engaged to Julia Seton(Doris Nolan) who tries to make him conform, unlike her sister Linda (Hepburn), who falls in love with him.

Based on a Broadway play by Philip Barry.

Newsweek wrote - "Cary Grant again turns in a smooth performance of the type that has made him one of Hollywood's most-sought-after leading men.
It is more to the point that Katharine Hepburn gives one of her most successful characterizations of her film career."

Cary Grant's acrobatics seemed to have rubbed off on Katharine Hepburn.

They were both known for doing their own stunts. Hepburn thought her double didn't have the correct deportment.

With Jean Dixon, Katharine Hepburn, Lew Ayres and Edward Everett Horton.
