    Set right before the onset of the Great Depression, “Holiday” tells the story of one man’s undying ambition to live life on his own terms. Ambitious Johnny Case believes he’s met the girl of his upwardly mobile dreams when he falls for Julia, and pledges to marry her, over her father’s strenuous objections. With one more big deal to set him up for life, it’s all falling into place for him. But it’s Julia's sister, Linda, who turns out to be Johnny’s kindred soul in this upper-class comedy of manners.
