"Racy" British comedian Frank Randle stars in the overlong farce Holidays With Pay. Predating National Lampoon's Vacation by over three decades, this episodic endeavor charts the progress--or lack of it--of a family on holiday. The film truly comes to life during the scenes in which a half-baked cousin tries to murder a friend of the family's daughter. Musical interludes are provided by Randle's co-star Tessie O'Shea, and by Pat Heywood and Her Troupe. Frank Randle co-wrote the screenplay of Holidays With Pay, understandably reserving the best lines for himself.
