Oh yes. I've ordered it a couple of months ago & it is terrific. Wonderful! :) 

Good deal! I've been curious about whether Edward Everett Horton's performance varied much between the two versions. I believe he played the same role in both.

Hi!

 

If anyone has a copy of Philip Barry's Holiday (1930, with Ann Harding, Mary Astor, Robert Ames), please notify me. I'm fascinated with seeing this rare version on a DVD. Thanks! :)

Horton was in the play and both versions playing the same character.   While that is odd to a degree the number of years between the two movie versions was only 7 to 8 years.

Didn't realize he was in the play as well. Thanks for the info!

 

Horton really didn't age much. Though he's a bit grayer in a 1962 episode of TV's Dennis the Menace, he hasn't changed much at that point, either.

I would also like to see the Harding \ Astor version of Holiday.   The Grant \ Hepburn version of Holiday is one of my favorite films.

I'd like to see this version, too. I've been curious about it for a long time. Love both these great actresses.
