When his heart is broken by his girlfriend, Crosby decides to retire from the hustle-bustle of big city showbiz. He purchases a rustic New England farm and converts it to an inn, which he opens to the public (floor show and all) only on holidays. This barely logical plot device allows ample space for a steady flow of Irving Berlin holiday songs (including an incredible blackface number in honor of Lincoln's Birthday). Oddly enough, the most memorable song in the bunch, the Oscar-winning White Christmas, is not offered as a production number but as a simple ballad sung by Crosby to an audience of one: leading lady Marjorie Reynolds. Fred Astaire's best moment is his Fourth of July firecracker dance. Ah, but what about the plot? Well, it seems that Astaire wants to make a film about Crosby's inn, starring their mutual discovery Reynolds. Bing briefly loses Reynolds to Astaire, but wins her back during the filming of a musical number on a Hollywood soundstage (eleven years earlier, Bing enjoyed a final clinch with Marion Davies under surprisingly similar conditions in Going Hollywood). As with most of Irving Berlin's "portfolio" musicals of the 1940s, the song highlights of Holiday Inn are too numerous to mention. This delightful film is far superior to its unofficial 1954 remake, White Christmas. ~ Hal Erickson, RoviHide synopsis
I love this movie anyway and this copy is in excellent condition. It came in a timely fashion. I was afraid they would completely stop showing this on TV because of the blackface scene. That is part of our history and we should be aware of all that came before our time. It is a great piece of entertainment and I loved Fred Astaire in this movie.
My husband & I had viewed this film before, but had forgotten much of the storyline so it was fun to see it again.
If you enjoy the days when filmmakers concentrated on the characters---their faces, their movements, their relationships and not just frenetic ACTION---then this is a film you could truly enjoy. And the music/singing is a bonus!
