Storyline

Having left the Army following W.W.II, Bob Wallace and Phil Davis team up to become a top song-and-dance act. Davis plays matchmaker and introduces Wallace to a pair of beautiful sisters (Betty and Judy) who also have a song-and-dance act. When Betty and Judy travel to a Vermont lodge to perform a Christmas show, Wallace and Davis follow, only to find their former commander, General Waverly, as the lodge owner. A series of romantic mix-ups ensue as the performers try to help the General.

Magic !

I have watched this movie countless times over the years and it remains my all-time favorite.. Even now I cannot watch the last scene – when General Waverley enters the dining room and sees his old troop – without becoming teary-eyed. It is a great shame that Hollywood no longer makes movies of this quality .

If this isn’t the all-time great Christmas movie, it’s pretty close!

 

Sorry, Jimmy! My apologies, Alistair! My all-time favorite Christmas was, is, and always will be, “White Christmas.” First of all, there’s that wonderful Irving Berlin score. “Count Your Blessings Instead of Sheep” and “Sisters” have become standards, of course. But, towering above them all, is Bing Crosby’s definitive performance of the beloved Christmas favorite that he practically owned. All the performances are top-drawer, what with Bing, Danny Kaye (In a role meant for Donald O’Connor), Rosie Clooney, Vera-Ellen, Dean Jagger, and Mary Wickes, who, as you can see here, was playing nasty old things even when she was a nasty young thing!

Corny, syrupy, kitsch. Perhaps it is all of that, to some. But, to unashamed sentimentalists like me, “White Christmas” will always be THE all-time great Christmas movie, particularly when viewed by the whole family, on Christmas Day, in front of the fireplace.

God bless Bing, Berlin, and company, for making a lot of Holidays that much happier, including those of the Sorrentino family!
