Let’s start this blog off with a movie about ALL of the holidays! Although it is mostly watched during the Christmas season, it could technically be a movie for ANY holiday of the year! Therefore, it deserves to be the first one discussed.
Holiday Inn is a b&w musical flick starring Fred Astraire and Bing Crosby but you might also note it as the movie “White Christmas” was originally written for. The basic premise of this flick is that there would be an inn that was only open on public holidays. During those special days, the owners of the inn would perform fantastic & elaborate shows. Astaire, Crosby, & the rest of the cast have such great chemistry in this film that they make it so easy to be entertained. The singing and dancing is infectious and the love story is perfect. But I must know, who would you pick as most dreamy, Bing Crosby or Fred Astraire? (Feel free to comment below!)
My holiday movie collection would be incomplete without this one. So, I’ll give it an A
