Johnny Holiday (October 28, 1912, San Francisco, California – February 28, 2009, Los Angeles, California) was an American actor who entered the field of acting at the age of 87.


A former barkeeper, Holiday (né John Taube) came out of a 25-year retirement, first appearing in print ads; later starting an acting career when he was nearly 90 years old. Taube was reportedly inspired by a photographer who told him that he would be great in film.[1]
