Blu-ray Review: George Cukor's Holiday Is As Alive as Ever
The screwball genre may remember George Cukor most fondly for his Katherine Hepburne / Cary Grant vehicle, 1940’s The Philadelphia Story, which helped to rescue Kat from her cruel ‘box office poison’ tagging.

It’s not that playwright Phillip Barry’s comedy of manners, Holiday (1928), is especially funny as much as it is charming as all hell, particularly when met with a worthy director.

Podtalk: Singer Kevin Pollack Brings His Swing to ‘Holiday’

Chicago – When we last talked to Kevin Pollack, Chicago’s answer to the Sultan of Swing, he was embarking on his once-a-month song reveal for the fall of 2019. The whole thing culminated in the release of “Holiday,” a feeling-the-vibe celebration of taking a break.

Kevin Pollack is a fixture around Chicago with his acting and singing, especially through his role as Jake in The Blues Brothers tribute act The Blooze Brothers. Lately he’s been writing and performing his own music, beginning in 2018 with “Something Good (Is Coming Down),” a song he wrote as a gift to his wife at their wedding. After getting some local traction for that single, including some radio and stadium play, he put together his once-a-month strategy for 2019, and kicked it off with “Man About Town.” To watch the video for that single, click here.
