Since I grew up watching the 1940’s musicals (and adoring them!) most of my favorite old timer movies are the musicals. Irving Berlin’s are the best!
It would not be Christmas to me if I didn’t see this movie and get all warm and fuzzy watching the “boys” doing their interpretation of the song “Sisters”.
Danny Kaye was such a talented man – singer, dancer, comedian – I loved almost every movie he was in. Another fave movie of mine ( but not Christmas ) starring Danny Kaye is Hans Christian Andersen. LOVE IT!
White Christmas was released in 1954 but the influence of WW2 was still very strong in the early 1950’s movies…… it was after all, a world war and there wasn’t a family in most any country that was not effected by WW2. So there are some touching moments where Bing and Danny honor their commander.
Makes me always think of my Dad when I see these scenes.
And of course, everyone loves the closing scene with the full cast and Bing Crosby singing “White Christmas”. I get goose bumps when they swing open the huge barn doors to expose the falling snow!
Have you see this movie and do you enjoy it too?
What is one of your fave Christmas movies?
