Editor's Note
Two retiring show people start up a New England country inn with the unique and, one would think, self-defeating idea of being open only on national holidays; however, in this delightful fluff-fest, they achieve instantaneous success. Conflicts arise when they fall for the same woman, and sparks fly -as do their feet - in a variety of inventive, holiday themed song-and-dance productions. Perhaps the best film ever inspired by a song. Irving Berlin's "White Christmas" was introduced in this film.

Professional Reviews

BBC Film Review 7 of 10
Music is definitely the key here, as the plot is distinctly thin, and the pairing of Crosby and Astaire, does not work as well as it could have. Crosby sings his way through "White Christmas" for the first time here, while Astaire tries to make do with a dancing partner - Marjorie Reynolds - who cannot replace Ginger Rogers...Despite not being the success it could have been, this can still inspire a festive glow. Irving Berlin's songs are always a joy to listen to, and while none of the stars sparkle as they could do there is gentle warmth to it and an element of romance, which brings out the Christmas spirit. - Ali Barclay
