Regardless of the weather I always have a White Christmas!
Every year around the holidays I watch this movie half a dozen times or more. It never gets old for me.
I’m streaming it on Netflix right now as I write this. I also own the DVD.
Danny Kaye and Vera-Ellen have just announced their fake engagement.
I can’t get over Vera-Ellen’s tiny tiny waist.
The dance numbers with Danny Kaye blow me away. He was up there with Fred Astaire and Gene Kelly. Always amazed me that these guys could dance and hold a tune too.
Don’t want to leave out Bing Crosby. “I’m Dreaming of a White Christmas.” Nobody can sing it like him.
Mary Wickes, the greatest character actor of all time, was perfect for the role of the wise-cracking housekeeper.
Now Dean Jagger, in his full general’s uniform, is entering the banquet room… and walking the inspection line. “I never saw anything look so wonderful in my whole life.” That could be said about the movie.
The finale. It’s finally snowing in Vermont. Everybody singing White Christmas.
May all your Christmases be white…. even if it’s 80 degrees and the sun is beating down on you!
