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

I saw the premiere before I left and I have to say, I was somewhat impressed. Of course it's not as good as BMW but I think they have good potential.

I was very impressed by the first episode of Doctor Who I watched which I believe was called "Rose". It was creepy  but with enough of a hint of humor that it made for an enjoyable and interesting program. Me and my dad will definitely be continuing to watch more and more episodes of Doctor Who in the future.

The answer, obviously, is Doctor Who. The show has technically been running for almost 51 years. It's  a British T.V. show about an alien with two hearts who has been living for over 1,000 years, with a time machine that can travel anywhere, or anytime, in the universe. But there's a catch to his machine, which is known as a T.A.R.D.I.S, (Time And Relative Dimension In Space): It is forever broken and disguised as a 1950's telephone box. He chooses not to fix it, despite the companions he travels with wondering to themselves, "Why doesn't he fix it? Why did he have to break it as telephone police box?" He also tends to attempt to keep the companions for as long as possible. They tend to keep him in check, safe, sane, and non-genocidal. After all, being 1,800 years old, and I'm just guessing precisely how old he is, can make you feel lonely, angry, confused, scared, and vengeful. He had to destroy his whole planet to protect the rest of the universe from being destroyed by his people and their age old enemies, the Daleks. He will forevermore remember that day, and as punishment, from the self concious weapon he used,will have to live through for a long, long time.
