Flick Pick: Holiday Inn

Holiday Inn
(Paramount, 1942)

Bing Crosby sings, Fred Astaire sings and dances, and Irving Berlin wrote the story and the score, all of them performing brilliantly, including launching "White Christmas", the biggest selling single of all time, and winner of the Academy Award for Best Song of 1942. Production took place from November 1941-January 1942, and the 4th of July segment was re-written after the attack on Pearl Harbor occurred in the middle of filming.
