HOLIDAY (dir: George Cukor, Not Rated) - Bart says, "It tends to get overshadowed by two other Cary Grant / Katherine Hepburn screwball comedies - Howard Hawks' BRINGING UP BABY from the same year and THE PHILADELPHIA STORY from two years later, also based on a Philip Barry play and directed by Cukor. But I think it can definitely stand its ground against the other two, and, depending on my mood, I might even say it's my favorite of the three. It may have the disadvantages of not giving Hepburn a role where she really gets to show her stuff and showing its stage origins by all taking place inside a house, but Cary Grant more than makes up for it with my favorite performance of his. He's totally charming, and you root for his anti-establishment attitude which disarms his fiancee's upper class family. Plus, Grant gets to do some acrobatics which remind us how he started out in show business as Archie Leach, circus performer."
THE LADY VANISHES (dir: Alfred Hitchcock, Not Rated) - Bart says, "For a while I sincerely preferred Hitchcock's early, British films to his glossy American ones. The clever, unpretentious suspense of movies like THE 39 STEPS or the original MAN WHO KNEW TOO MUCH is exciting and fun - not weighed down in elaborate cinematic techniques. THE LADY VANISHES was always my favorite, because it's so fast-moving and funny, with a train-bound mystery that's genuinely intriguing. It may not have the rich layers of sophistication of Hitchcock's later works, but you're guaranteed a good time."
