Christmas Countdown: White Christmas (1954)

December 4, 2011

Every day from December 1st to 24th, we will be counting down to Christmas by profiling holiday classics both old and new.  Arranged in chronological order, these are some of our favourites to watch every year.  Enjoy!

Irving Berlin’s 1954 classic White Christmas is the sort of entertaining holiday musical that lends itself well to being watched on a Sunday evening.  The film stars Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye as two men who team up after the war to become one of the biggest musical acts.  Joining forces with an equally strong sister act (Rosemary Clooney and Vera-Ellen), the four performers make their way to a hotel in Vermont, before realizing that they have to put on a show to help their old army general save his inn.  White Christmas is perhaps best known for the beloved title song, but the film itself is also a classic worth seeing.
