Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Released two years after This is Cinerama, Cinerama Holiday is the second feature-length demonstration of the famed three-camera process. As plotless as the first entry, Holiday nonetheless kept its audience enthralled throughout its 119 minutes. Among the sights displayed on the curved, 165-degree screen are the man-made canyons of New York, the Swiss Alps, the beauties of Paris, the autumnal splendor of New Hampshire, the glitz and glitter of Las Vegas and a high-rise restaurant in San Francisco. The "money scenes" include a motorcycle ride and a cowpunchng demonstration. The various sequences are tied together by two couples, the Marshes and the Trollers, who are ostensibly taking the holiday that is being recorded by the Cinerama cameras. Produced by Louis de Rochemont (of March of Time fame), Cinerama Holiday was codirected by former child actor Philippe De Lacy.
