Writers: Irving Berlin; Claude Binyon; Elmer Rice

Keywords: Musical Comedy, Christmas

Bing Crosby is crooner Jim Hardy and Fred Astaire is dancer Ted Hanover, performing partners in New York City who like the same girl. Hardy has the idea to use his Vermont country house as a vacation lodge open on holidays only. Good solid musical. Commercial broadcasters will tend to edit out the "Abraham" number, which features Crosby in blackface. Won Oscar for Best Original Song, "White Christmas"; received nominations for Best Score of a Musical and Best Original Story.
