"Holiday Inn", the 1942 film with Bing Crosby and Fred Astaire introduced Irving Berlin's song, "White Christmas", an Academy Award winner. Crosby breaks up an act with Astaire to open an inn in Connecticut that is only open on holidays, presenting shows. That sets the stage for many Berlin tunes and production numbers. The centerpiece of the movie occurs when the inn opens on New Years Eve and Crosby and Marjorie Reynolds (Mrs. Murdock and Mrs. Gregory on "Leave it to Beaver") since "Happy Holiday" in a scene shot on Hollywood's largest indoor set--still in use today. The winter scene is truly a wonderful piece of cinema art. The enitre picture is a holiday delight.
