Overview
Told by his doctor he has no more than a few months to live, drab British salesman George Bird (Alec Guinness) decides to spend his savings on lodging at a seaside resort. Once there, however, he finds his identity caught between upstairs and downstairs, the guests and the "help." A droll social commentary as well as an unpredictable dark comedy about life, death, and luck, Last Holiday is one of Guinness's finest moments.
