White Christmas 2-disc Holiday Edition

Nov 18, 2010

Irving Berlin’s classic movie White Christmas has been re-released this year in a special two-disc holiday edition. The movie comes in a silver and clear case complete with musical notes and faux snow. It is the perfect movie to watch with friends and family on a chilly winter night.


The Story

White Christmas originally debuted in 1954, to great acclaim. Buddies Bob Wallace (Bing Crosby) and Phil Davis (Danny Kaye) are performers and producers for a Broadway musical. At the request of a friend, they scout the performance of two beautiful sisters, Betty (Rosemary Clooney) and Judy (Vera-Ellen). Phil decides that he wants to set up Bob and Betty, and the two follow the sisters to Pine Tree, Vermont, where they have a contract to sing at a local inn for the holiday season.

There they stumble upon an old friend from the army, participate in a variety of antics and find themselves falling in love. In order to save the inn from bankruptcy (it was a bad season because of the lack of snow), the boys decide to bring their Broadway musical to Vermont. Of course, no Christmas is complete without snow, and on the opening night they discover that dreams do come true. Although the movie came out more than 50 years ago, its themes of friendship, loyalty and love are just as relevant today.


Special Features

The two-disc holiday edition includes the following special features:

  • Commentary by Rosemary Clooney
  • Stories and trivia about the making of the movie
  • The story behind Irving Berlin’s song White Christmas, and why he decided to make a movie about it
  • Two theatrical trailers
  • And more about the Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye, the stars behind the movie
