What's the use of having all this jack around if it can't get us a superior kind of man?

Katharine Hepburn, Cary Grant and a brilliant cast ring in the season in George Cukor’s Holiday (1938).

Adapted by Donald Ogden Stewart and Sidney Buchman from the play by Philip Barry, it deals with an unconventional young man (Grant) who wishes to marry into a wealthy family without sacrificing his ideals. He meets a comrade in the feisty sister of his fiancé (Hepburn) and her alcoholic brother Lew Ayres, in a brilliant performance. As always, Grant and Hepburn sparkle together. The dialogue is sophisticated, witty and the message as relevant today as it was when it was made.

From all of us at Tired Old Queen at the Movies have a Merry Christmas, a Happy New Year and a lovely Holiday.

Steve celebrates Thanksgiving with Jezebel!

Bette Davis sets fire to the screen and goes on to Oscar glory for the second time in William Wyler’s classic tale of the old South, Jezebel (1938). Directed with consummate skill by William Wyler, it was the first of the three films they made together. With able support from Henry Fonda, George Brent and Fay Bainter in an Oscar winning role as Bette’s sympathetic aunt, it’s as close to Scarlett O’Hara as Davis would get and she gives it all she’s got.
