Double Feature! Book Signing of 'Hollywood Celebrates The Holidays'!
WHITE CHRISTMAS / HOLIDAY INN

Introduction by Karie Bible and Mary Mallory, who will sign their book, Hollywood Celebrates the Holidays, in the lobby at 6:30 PM.

WHITE CHRISTMAS
1954, Paramount, 120 min, Dir: Michael Curtiz

Director Michael Curtiz’s (CASABLANCA) Christmas classic was Paramount’s first film shot in widescreen VistaVision. Army buddies turned postwar song-and-dance team Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye find romance with Rosemary Clooney and Vera-Ellen while rescuing their former commanding officer (Dean Jagger) from financial ruin. With 13 songs, highlighted by the train rendition of Irving Berlin's "Snow" and the Oscar-nominated "Count Your Blessings Instead of Sheep."


HOLIDAY INN
1942, Universal, 100 min, USA, Dir: Mark Sandrich

In an all-too-rare pairing, Bing Crosby and Fred Astaire star as song-and-dance men vying for the heart of Marjorie Reynolds while performing at a club open only on holidays. Irving Berlin supplied the film’s story and all of its songs, including Oscar winner “White Christmas.” This musical gem inspired the name of the famous hotel chain.
