Join me May 5 as I introduce George Cukor's classic film Holiday (1938) and explore the many stories behind its style. The movie is being presented in 35mm by the Film Society of Screwball Comedy as part of their Screwball Sundays series at the historic Camelot Theatre.

In my introduction, we will explore the enormous significance of Holiday to Katharine Hepburn's career. Then we will examine the communication of character through Robert Kalloch's costume design - from the Seton sisters (Hepburn and Doris Nolan) to Johnny Case (Cary Grant). We will also celebrate Kalloch's vast contributions to both Columbia Pictures and the genre of screwball comedy itself. We'll even be discussing the connection between screwball comedy and film noir.
