              This has been one of my Christmas time favorites for years and years. I never get tired of watching it. How can you go wrong with songs written by Irving Berlin? Fred Astaire and Bing Crosby at their best.

                Comments about this product:

                This is a well-known movie, which many have seen more than once, myself included. As a fan of Fred Astaire and Bing Crosby, I purchased the movie for my collection. What surprised me was that among the special features was an interview with Fred Astaire's daughter. The interview provided information and photos about Fred that I had not heard or seen. A very pleasant surprise indeed.

                It's a fun movie to watch on the holidays. Bing and Fred are marvelous, as always. There is some racism that unfortunately was common for the time period.

                  How do you make a classic film better? You add in the extras. Historic footage, interviews, insights and comentary. It's just too bad they didn't film Holiday Inn in color.
                  It's November and single digits in Wyoming. The snow blows across the landscape. Inside the wood stove is cranked at 600 degrees while Fred Astaire dances accross the stage and Bing croons the leading lady. There is hope. I just might survive another Wyoming Winter

                                      Pull this movie out on Christmas eve after the tree is decorated and the Family is ready to come together and REMEMBER the past, and pass on the feeling of Christmas. The MUSIC and Lyrics bring a feeling you can't get from new movies.

                                              About 10-ish years ago, I came across this movie on TCM and just fell in love with it! I decided right then and there that it would have to be a staple in my house for holiday viewing (and sometimes in the middle of the year). I love Bing & Fred...and Marjorie gave a really great performance! We like to quote the movie all the time for fun...how could you not love, "...I do not know which way is 'Connect-i-cut'!" :)
