I do not have to relate the story of White Christmas. Anyone who watches Christmas movies has seen it over and over. It is a highly entertaining film that leaves you with a good feeling inside. The stars, Bing Crosby, Danny Kaye, Vera-Ellen and Rosemary Clooney are all wonderful.

The new Blu Ray transfer is magnificent. The picture is so sharp, so crystal-clear, so detailed and so alive with brilliant color, that it is hard to believe that the film is over fifty years old. While watching it, I almost felt like I was there in person. Fortunately, the picture was shot in real Technicolor, and was filmed using Paramount's VISTA-VISION, which created a much larger image on the film allowing for incredible sharpness of vision. The newly remastered 5.1 DTS soundtrack fills your viewing room with rich, lush sound and sharp dialog.

You cannot go wrong by buying this new Blu Ray of White Christmas. It's a film the whole family can enjoy.

I know it sounds scary, but it's just one of the many reasons why this is one of the greatest films ever. Don't be misled by comparisons to Bing's earlier "Holiday Inn." That's a great film too, but when they held a sprig of mistletoe over "Holiday Inn," and gave it a big, warm, Technicolor kiss -- they ended up with "White Christmas."

Rosemary Clooney is a star here. She's at her most gorgeous and in her best voice ever. Hearing her rich, beautiful alto renditions of "Count Your Blessings," or the mournful, haunting "Love, You Didn't Do Right by Me," is like pulling a thick comforter up to your chin on a snowy night. Clooney went on to a long illustrious career, of course, becoming an acclaimed jazz vocalist in her later years, but I will always love the Rosemary of this period the best.

As much a star, but with a lot more twinkle, is the real stand-out, Vera-Ellen, who deserves extra accolades for being one of the first stars to be known only by her first name. She has the added distinction of being the sole reason for hearing someone at our house say every Christmas, "Look how TINY her WAIST is!"

She was a power-house dancer, but has never garnered the acclaim that she deserves. Her other best-known role was "Miss Turnstiles" in Gene Kelly's "On the Town," but her dancing skills are highlighted more in "White Christmas," being the only real dancer in the quartet. Director Michael Curtiz brings in John Brascia, an athletic and powerful dancer in his own right, just to keep up with her. He seems to, but, honestly, you can't take your eyes off Vera-Ellen long enough to know for sure.

Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye bring all their star power to complete the quartet of principal characters.

WHITE CHRISTMAS remains the all-time classic Christmas movie (not counting IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE). Featuring a fantastic cast and a superb Irving Berlin score, it's a heartwarming and lavish musical.
Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye play two ex-GI's who team up with a sister act (Rosemary Clooney and Vera-Ellen) and help out their old army general (Dean Jagger) whose Vermont ski lodge has hit hard times. They decide to write a new musical and premiere it at the lodge with hopes of going to Broadway.
The performances cannot be bettered; Bing and Rosemary make a delightful singing screen couple; while Kaye and Vera-Ellen make the perfect matchmakers heckling on the sideline. Mary Wickes (SISTER ACT, NOW VOYAGER) is hilarious as Jagger's busybody other half.
Clooney is given the fantastic number "Love You Didn't Do Right By Me", Crosby is affecting in his duet with Clooney "Count Your Blessings Instead Of Sheep", Danny Kaye and Vera-Ellen bring down the house with "The Best Things Happen While You're Dancing" and Vera-Ellen is breathtaking dancing to "Mandy".
The DVD includes an audio commentary from Rosemary Clooney, a retrospective interview with Rosemary Clooney and trailers.

The classics of Irving Berlin will make this a movie favorite year after year. I have seen this movie enough to spot some interesting edits (just watch Bing Crosby sitting on the side/end of the hospital cot or Vera-Ellen's cup of coffee in her dressing room) and I still watch it at least 8 times a year. It's enjoyable to let the music take you from the everyday grind with war buddies, Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye meeting up with the sister act of Rosemary Clooney and Vera - Ellen. Bing Crosby delivers his opening number / title song White Christmas with the same smoothness we've come to know and love. There's a lot of accomplished dancing on Vera Ellen's part and Danny Kaye does an excellent job as her partner in "The Best Things Happen While You're Dancing". Their "choreography" number provides a fun look at changes from traditional dancing to a beatnik approach in staging. "Count Your Blessing's" is a number appropriate for any time of the year. Mary Wickes does a fine job as the "housekeeper / receptionist / how can I help you?" individual putting her nose in the wrong place at exactly the right time and setting up the romantic conflict. Rosemary Clooney delivers only a hint of the musical talent she has continued to bestow on us. It would have been nice to hear Rosemary Clooney and Vera-Ellen do something besides "Sisters" - it seems that is the only song this duet ever performed. It should be so easy to succeed in show business. While White Christmas may not be a Christmas standard on the level of Miracle on 34th Street or It's a Wonderful Life, the music alone can bring a bit of Christmas spirit even in July!

Is this the "original form UNCUT?"
Carl, you've got the wrong movie in mind. What you are probably referring to is 'Holiday Inn'.

I'm amazed (still) that there's so much 'political correctness' these days, the 'black servants scene' is 'Holiday Inn' seems to be such a 'horrific topic'.

Within the context of the movie, Louise... Read More
