Bing-le Bells

After seeing White Christmas at the Music Box's Annual Christmas Show this weekend with my family, I remembered how much Bing Crosby's holiday songs warm my heart this time of year. Of course the title song is great, but my favorite Bing Crosby song is his version of "Jingle Bells" performed with the Andrews Sisters.

Excellent dvd, after the first few minutes of watching it seemed boring due to the fact that it was an older film. However as we continued to watch the movie was well done excellent cast both Ballet and acting. Very enjoyable family movie

This holiday classic is one of the reasons that I became a dancer. From the songs to the choreography this film does not disappoint. With lovable characters and a sweet story line I look forward to this film each holiday season.
The costumes are also beautiful from costume designer Edith Head. This film will please the whole family.

The four principal actors are great, but check out the underrated work of male dancer John Brascia, who appears in many of the musical numbers.

As bloger/critic James Wolcott pointed out, White Christmas is a rare Christmas film classic for grown ups.

This movie was a must in my family growing up and it is in my own family too. It embodies everything Christmas should be about. It's very entertaining and the sister's song was sung by all the sisters in my family every year (the brothers too).

I have to disagree with you, ostwald, my whole family watched and we were all (parents not included) under the age of 13. Sweet movie. Very funny. Some of the conflicts make you think about the importance of totally open communication.

Phil Davis: I want you to get married. I want you to have nine children. And if you only spend five minutes a day with each kid, that's forty-five minutes, and I'd at least have time to go out and get a massage or something.
Bob Wallace: You don't expect me to get serious with the kind of characters you and Rita have been throwing at me, do you?
Phil Davis: Well, there've been some nice girls, too, you know.
Bob Wallace: Oh yeah, yeah. Like that nuclear scientist we just met out in the hall.
Phil Davis: All right, they didn't go to college. They didn't go to Smith.
Bob Wallace: Go to Smith? She couldn't even spell it.
Phil Davis: Oh, that's very funny. Ho, ho, ho. The crooner is now becoming the comic.
