Last Holiday

Informed that he has only a short time to live, salesman Alec Guinness decides to enjoy his last months to the fullest. He withdraws all his savings from the bank and heads to a posh hotel. Here he makes more contacts and opens more professional doors than he’d ever done before, thanks to his willingness–at long last–to take risks. He also spends every penny that he’s earned in life. Then he discovers that the doctor’s diagnosis was in error, and that he’s in no danger of imminent death. An ironic ending caps this fast-paced black comedy. Last Holiday was co-written and co-produced by J. B. Priestly, author of many other “if I had to do it all over again” pieces, notably An Inspector Calls. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
