Young American couple John and Betty Marsh set out on a European sightseeing tour, trading places with Swiss pair Fred and Beatrice Troller on their journey across the States. Guided by the principles of 1952’s This is Cinerama, the film features a slideshow of thrilling point-of-view sequences and spectacular landscapes, as well as quaint vignettes depicting the glamour of 50s leisure and tourism.
The second of the original 3-panel Cinerama travelogues, Cinerama Holiday premiered in 1955 and became the highest grossing film of that year in the USA, narrowly beating Oklahoma! It’s a fantastic way to experience cinema history and a brilliant introduction to the wonders of widescreen.
