Bank Holiday (also known as Three on a Weekend) is a 1938 British drama film directed by Carol Reed and starring John Lodge, Margaret Lockwood, Hugh Williams and Kathleen Harrison.


On a 1930s bank holiday weekend, a number of people rush for trains to head to the seaside. They include:

  • an unmarried couple, nurse Catherine Lawrence and her boyfriend Geoffrey. Catherine is distracted by thoughts of Stephen Howard, widower of a patient who died in childbirth;
  • May and Arthur and their working-class family;
  • two female friends looking for romance.[1]



It was the third collaboration between Reed and Lockwood.[2]


The film was popular and helped establish Carol Reed's reputation.[3]

The Sunday Express called it "'one of the ablest pieces of picture-making to come out of a British studio."[4]

Lockwood was voted third best actress of 1938 by the readers of Film Weekly.[5]
