"White Christmas" (1954), Michael Curtiz. Jan 2, 8pm. View count: One.

Fluffy, but reasonably well-handled. A couple of old army buddies who have some kind of Danny Kaye/Bing Crosby singing/dancing theater career going meet up with a "sister act" whose one-song repertoire is about them being sisters. One of them is Rosemary Clooney, and the other is a very breakable-looking lady who does the dancing for the act. They all go to Vermont so that they can sing the word "snow" a lot, and do a Let's Put On a Show show which has some purpose that I can't remember. It was cheery and harmless, and really all the main characters are good at their jobs. Pros, all of 'em.

Hey, guys! I'm, um, having a blog here! I guess! Mirrored for now, but... maybe not forever? I don't know.

Welcome back! Sort of!

I didn't like White Christmas when I saw it. It's a semi remake of Holiday Inn (also with Crosby, but with Astaire instead of Kaye.) I love that one, even (or perhaps because of) its ridiculous parts.

I haven't seen Holiday Inn yet, but I aim to. I do like Danny Kaye, though! Maybe I will like both.
