If you like White Christmas, you would enjoy (I think) Holiday Inn. Starring Bing Crosby and Fred Astair. This is the first time that the song was ever sung. The story goes that Irving Berlin had written the lyrics a few years earlier and just put it away. When he was asked to deliver the songs for the movie, he pulled White Christmas out and contributed it to the movie. No one ever expected it to be a classic hit - and the rest, as they say, is history.
In fact, this was not the song that was supposed to be the "hit". In the end, it is the only song that Irving Berlin ever won an Oscar for and it was the first
Christmas song that ever became synonymous with one specific singer!
I love this movie and, oh yeah, I could watch it again and again!
