WHITE CHRISTMAS (Theatrical Release USA 1954)

 Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.2|5.0 Starsìììì 

White Christmas
—Bing Crosby, Danny Kaye, Rosemary Clooney, and Vera-Ellen—provides a low-key, peaceful musical that includes both singing and dancing. It’s a good Christmas piece for the entire family. Listen for the song, Count Your Blessings (Instead of Sheep) and I’m Dreaming of a White Christmas.
