Holiday Inn

Holiday Inn is not one of my favorite Christmas movies -perhaps because I got tired of it- but The Husband has a special fondness for it, and we found it on when we got home from running errands. He was watching it while he made our traditional Friday pizza, so The Daughter and I watched the rest of it with him. It is a 1942 film and stars Bing Crosby and Fred Astaire "singing and dancing" to music by Irving Berlin.


The New York Times has a review. Variety's review is here. Bright Lights Film Journal has an article which doesn't glow with admiration. BBC's review says,
Music is definitely the key here, as the plot is distinctly thin
