Double Feature!
WHITE CHRISTMAS / THE HOLLY AND THE IVY
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."


THE HOLLY AND THE IVY
1952, Kino Lorber, 80 min, UK, Dir: George More O'Ferrall

Based on the classic play by Wynyard Browne ("Hobson’s Choice"), this heart-warming Christmas tale set in postwar Britain stars Ralph Richardson as Reverend Martin Gregory, a recently widowed minister torn between his roles of clergyman and father. His zeal for attending to his parishioners leads him to neglect the needs of his own family, until emotions boil over one Christmas. A charming and moving seasonal favorite, peaking with the family’s poignant reconciliation as they rediscover the true spirit of Christmas, the yuletide classic also stars Celia Johnson, Margaret Leighton and Denholm Elliott.
