Christmas Holiday Edition

This week's featured Christmas movie is, White Christmas
For the past two years, White Christmas has been the last movie that I review before Christmas. Why? Because it's my favorite and my mother's as well. The elaborate dance scenes, the songs, the story... it all just makes for a great Christmas story. They don't make them like this anymore and that's such a shame. What else is a shame? It's a shame if you have never seen this movie. 

Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye star as Bob Wallace (Crosby) and Phil Davis (Kaye) who meet while stationed together during the war. One day when an air raid strikes their camp, Phil pulls Bob out of harms while resulting in an injury to himself. Feeling much gratitude to Phil, Bob tells him that if he ever needs anything to just find him and ask him once the war is over. Phil doesn't hesitate to tell him that he's written a song that he'd like them to perform together once the war is over. Bob agrees since he feels indebted to him. 
The war ends and they come back to America where they are greeted with much success and their Wallace and Davis act becomes a smashing success. Over time, Phil pulls out the card about saving Bob's life anytime he wants something and Bob continues to do it. Cue the Hanes Sisters... because they end up going to Vermont just to hang out with them. While there they run into their old General and decide to host their show there over Christmas on the hopes of it bringing business into his dying ski village. 
Will Wallace and Davis succeed in bringing business into the Columbia Ski Lodge? Better yet will they find love along the way? You'll have to watch this holiday classic to find out! I know one thing you'll find yourself singing along to each happy tune.

I love this movie - and I love Danny Kaye - My favourite movie of his is the Court Jester - which is just the funniest thing EVER.
