STUDIOCANAL is delighted to announce the release of a newly restored version of director Henry Cass’ (The Glass Mountain) classic British comedy, LAST HOLIDAY. Originally released in 1950 and starring the great Alec Guinness (The Bridge on the River Kwai), this witty and ironic meditation on the nature of love, life and luck will be available on DVD, Blu-Ray and Digital Download on March 9. Now looking better than ever and bundled with brand new bonus content, LAST HOLIDAY is a welcome addition to the Vintage Classics collection. LAST HOLIDAY sees Guinness in one of his best, if lesser known, roles as an everyman facing his mortality in a hotel by the seaside. Coming just a year after his showy turn in full disguise as 8 different characters in KIND HEARTS AND CORONETS, this performance showcases instead Guinness’s skill for subtlety and nuance as a seemingly rather drab everyman. Supporting him are an exemplarity cast of the era that includes performances from Beatrice Campbell (The Master of Ballantrae), Kay Walsh (Oliver Twist), Bernard Lee (Dr. No), Sid James (Carry On Doctor), Wilfred Hyde-White (The Third Man) and Jean Colin (The Mikado).
