Holiday Inn

Holiday Inn - a classicWatched Holiday Inn tonight, for the kazillionth time, and man is it great.  Bing Crosby, Fred Astaire, Marjorie Reynolds, great singing ("White Christmas"!), amazing dancing (how well would Fred and Marjorie score on Dancing with the Stars, eh?) and a wonderful feel-good story.  There's even some funny set-within-a-set Hollywood inside baseball.

I've blogged about this before, it all started when we were decorating for Christmas in 2004, and we wanted to hear "White Christmas".  And we found it on iTunes, and poof! we were listening to it, and it was great.

And then again, in 2008 when we wanted to find "White Christmas", the movie, and we did, but then realized that the classic recording of "White Christmas" actually did not come from the movie, but instead came from "Holiday Inn", which predated it by ten years.  We found it on iTunes, and poof! we were watching it, and it was great.

And it still is :)
