Movie Review: "White Christmas"

White Christmas

Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye play war buddies turned entertainers who fall for a pair of sisters (Rosemary Clooney and Vera-Ellen). The boys follow the girls to a resort, which is owned by their former commanding officer, and he's in danger of losing the place. What better reason to stage a show than to keep the resort out of hock?

Director:Michael Curtiz
Genres:Classics, Classic Movie Musicals, Must-See Musicals, Paramount Home Entertainment
This movie is:Feel-good, Romantic, Sentimental
My Thoughts:
This is probably my all time favorite Christmas movie.  My mom and I have been watching it for as long as I can remember.  Every year.  We used to rent the video and then I finally bought the DVD.  It is one of my prized posessions. 
It is a tradtion with us.   Bake cookies, watch White Christmas.
I can quote it and sing along with all the songs but it still makes me all warm and gooey inside every time I watch it.  I even taught my girls the "Sisters" song.  And  "Snow, Snow, Snow, Snow!"
If you've never seen White Christmas, poor thing!  It is a classic.
I'll be setting up a time with my mom this week for us to sit down and watch it with some nice hot tea and some cookies.
(BTW, my husband's favorite Christmas movie is National Lampoon's Christmas.  Did I really marry him?  Although I caught him watching White Christmas on TV the other day!)
Merry Christmas!
