... and the #1 Film on the List.......

Gentle Friends I thought I would save this film for the #1 Spot, since it is truly one of the top 5 Christmas films there is.....

.... "White Christmas" - 1954 - starring Bing Crosby, Danny Kaye, Rosemary Clooney and Vera-Ellen.  A tour de force film with super musical numbers. wonderful sets and some spectacular costumes.  A really wonderful film from 20th century Fox, that spared no expense!!  - and  - was the first film from that studio in the then new "VistaVision.".  In a nutshell the story is about ....."a successful song-and-dance team become romantically involved with a sister act and team up to save the failing Vermont Inn of their former Commanding General."   

A great clip from You Tube ...... Snow......


I hope you enjoyed the movie list this year, and that you got to enjoy some of the films.  There are lots of other films out there I didn't mention with Christmas Themes or built around the Christmas Holiday..... "Shop around the Corner" - 1940, or the remake nine years later... "In the Good Old Summertime" - 1949, "Trading Places" - 1983, then there is always the the "Santa Clause" franchises - 1994,  2002 and 2006, and there are the "Home Alone" films - the best being the first in 1990, I could go on and on.....  so go enjoy a Christmas film - there's got to be something out there to tickle your fancy!!!

Take care,
