The Devil's Holiday (1930) DVD-R

Be the first to review this product

Quick Overview

Starring Nancy Carroll, Phillips Holmes, James Kirkwood, Hobart

Bosworth, Ned Sparks

Directed by Edmund Goulding



Print: black/white

Runtime: 80 min.

Genre: drama

Print Quality: B



Nancy Carroll brings a touch of freshness to the well-worn plot

convolutions of Devil's Holiday. Ms. Carroll plays a manicurist who woos

and weds wealthy Phillips Holmes. She tells herself that she harbors no

mercenary notions, but when Holmes' family offers to buy her off if she'll

leave, Carroll accepts the offer. The girl's basic loyalty surfaces when

Holmes goes temporarily insane; Carroll reneges on her cash deal with

the family and returns to her husband. Devil's Holiday is one of those

class-conscious early 1930s pictures that always scored a hit with

middle-class filmgoers, who liked to believe that they, too, would behave

as altruistically as Nancy Carroll if given the chance.
