My Favorite Christmas Movie!

White Christmas!  A Technicolor classic in VistaVision!  This great uplifting movie from 1954 will always bring a tear to my eye.  It is the story of two ex-WWII GI's who return after the war to become singing and dancing entertainers.  The ex-GI's, played by Bing Crosby (who else?) and Danny Kaye, meet up with two sisters who happen to be the sisters of an old army pal.  The sisters, played by Rosemary Clooney and Vera Ellen, are on their way to Vermont to an inn where they are to perform for the holidays.  Crosby and Kaye follow the ladies to Vermont, where they find that the inn is run by their former General, who is played by Dean Jagger.  The story that unfolds is truly heartwarming and inspirational.

There is a lot of great music in this Irving Berlin classic, with the title song, "White Christmas," of course.  No one can sing "White Christmas" like Bing!

When Crosby and Kaye first meet the girls, the girls sing the song "Sisters" which I enjoy even more knowing that my grandma made my mom and her two sisters learn that song so that they could all sing together when they were growing up.

If the set looks familiar, it is.  It is the same set that was used in Holiday Inn, which I featured a couple of weeks ago.

Have a great Friday!  It's our last day of school until after the New Year, and yes, even teachers look forward to Christmas vacation!


  1. I KNEW it! While nobody made us, my sisters and I used to sing along with "Sisters" and it's such a good memory. I just bought "White Christmas" and then discovered I already had it. You can never have enough Bing & Danny (or Bing & Fred or Bing & Bob etc. etc. etc.)!

  2. I thought it migfht be!!!! The sets, I never even realized it!!!! What a wonderful movie! "Lord help the Mister, who comes between me and my sister. And Lord help the sister who comes between me and my man!"

    fantastic cant wait to watch it tonight!

    Thanks Michael

  3. Wonderful! Bing Crosby and Rosemary Clooney! What more could you ask for?

    I really need to rewatch this. I don't think I've seen it since I was knee-high to a Brussels Sprout!

  4. Another one of my favorites. I've watched it two times already this year.
