HOLIDAY INN (Released to Theaters in the USA 1942)

Ben Meyers’ Rating: 4.3|5.0 Stars

Holiday Inn—interesting and well done—uses the stage settings from the movie, White Christmas, and works similarly to that movie sans the military gentleman in financial trouble and the two sisters who share professions in the entertainment industry. This movie may have been overlooked in favor of White Christmas but do not overlook this film. It is a black and white movie that has a beautiful story with terrific Fred Astaire dance routines and great singing by Bing Crosby. The acting, presentation, and portrayal are great. The storyline is simple, very entertaining and well written. This movie is highly watchable. Bing Crosby and Fred Astaire will dance and sing their way into your heart. The movie absolutely belongs in the family home video library.

? Yes? No? Maybe? 

Yes. This is a good watch and worth watching for the music and storyline. To listen and watch the perfection of Bing Crosby and Fred Astaire as they perform is a wonderful break from the live performances offered in current venues. Watch for Bing Crosby's younger brother, Bob, performing with his Bob Crosby band.
