Bing Crosby's OTHER (first) entry in the "save the inn by putting on a show" genre, White Christmas has 100% less black face than Holiday Inn, though it does give us a Minstrel Show scare at one point. It's a fun entertainment that uses its four stars very well - Crosby's easy improv, Danny Kaye's more restrained than usual slapstick, Vera-Ellen's energetic but precise dancing, and Rosemary Clooney's voice and dress sense (that Batwoman dress is so great, it will haunt my dreams) - with some memorable song and dance numbers. There are silly misunderstandings to keep the romances alive, and a good deal of gay subtext for those who enjoy that kind of camp. Post-war patriotism and some heart in the message that we shouldn't forget our veterans. That Batwoman dress--oh, did I already mention it? Maybe it deserves to be mentioned twice. A likeable Christmas spectacular, harmless in the best possible way.

A magical film. I never tire of hearing Crosby and Kaye sing the songs and put together a touching tribute for the "old man." Clooney's performance of "Love, you didn't do right by me" is downright dazzling.
