Holiday is one of the great screwball comedies, a quick-fire, fast-talking delight that reunites Hepburn and Grant to fine comic effect as an independently-minded everyman who falls for a woman from a wealthy, old-money family with particular views on social hierarchy. Amid the hullaballoo, Cukor’s film questions social responsibility and position.
