The Mating of Cary and Kate

Holiday (Sony Pictures, $24.95, Release Date: Dec. 5, 2006)

Cary Grant. Katharine Hepburn. Need I say more? Grant's Johnny Case is a man on the move. He has a good job and a wealthy fiance. "If I'm going to get stuck with a rich girl, I'll just grit my teeth, make the best of it," he tells his betrothed. Unfortunately, they don't want the same things from life. Fortunately, she has a black sheep of a sister, played by the incomparable Kate, who is much more in tune with Case's independent streak. It's a film for people who like slick dialogue, strong characters and grown-up emotions.

Extras: Limited: a nice, but tame, feature on Cary Grant's work for Columbia Pictures and a brief montage of production stills from a deleted scene.
