Bank Holiday

Bank Holiday

About

Insubstantial but amusing ensemble piece following the adventures of a bunch of characters stranded in Brighton on a bank holiday. Well-crafted and featuring a host of character actors, many of whom would go on to greater things (especially noteworthy is Lockwood in the same year The Lady Vanishes made her a star), Bank Holiday is still a delight to watch.

  • Actor: Merle Tottenham, Margaret Lockwood, John Lodge, Linden Travers, Hugh Williams, René Ray
  • Director: Carol Reed

In a nutshell

Director Reed is a long way from The Third Man, but her assured direction is already much in evidence.
