Holiday Inn (1942)

Holiday Inn from 1942 is a seasonal staple at my house. I'm a sucker for any time Bing Crosby starts swooningly crooning and Fred Astaire starts tapping around the soundstage. This movie is chock full of Irving Berlin ditties and is as charming as it is cloyingly sappy. Rounding out the cast is Marjorie Reynolds, Virginia Dale and Walter Abel singing and dancing their hearts out, of course.

The hyper-colored lobby cards are a nod to the colorization of this film. It's one of those that has been painted to be extra purty - since most people won't bother watching if it's in black and white. That just means the tv is broken.  My favorite part of this movie is the drunken dance scene footed flawlessly by fabulous Fred. It went a little something like this...  click here.
