The Fred Waller Cinerama process is seen in its second mounting. Much of the excitement [of the first, This Is Cinerama,] remains, although there is some feeling of repeating tried-and-true pictorial effects.

Right off, one thing stands out. Here is the greatest trailer for travel ever produced. There is a wisp of continuity in Holiday, unlike the predecessor film. Betty and John Marsh of Kansas City and Beatrice and Fred Troller of Zurich do an exchange student type of act, each pair of newlyweds visiting the other’s hemisphere.

Since the second part of the show, after a 15-minute intermission, is largely made up of an extended visit to Paris, the impression grows into a conviction that the American couple really went places, did things and met people far beyond the arrangements for the Swiss pair.
