White Christmas is the 1954 musical starring Bing Crosby. He plays Bob Wallace, who is a soldier who is friends with Phil Davis. They become a singing duo after the war. Soon, they meet a female duo named Betty and Judy, whom they have a stormy relationship with. Bob and Phil go to Pine Tree in order to sing at the Columbia Inn. They find out that the inn is run by their former leader, Gen. Waverly and that his business is in danger of failing. In order to help him, they decide to put on a show that will be broadcast on T.V. Will they succeed and be able to save the inn?
This isn’t a bad Christmas movie. The plot would have been relevant at the time, since many WWII vets were trying to adjust to civilian life. It does get annoying when Bob and Betty have romantic drama due to miscommunication and Betty’s stubbornness. The climax doesn’t hesitate to pull an extravagant show. Television was new at the time, so Bob and Phil would have been considered smart to take advantage of what was cutting age technology at the time. Honolulu Bing Crosby fans should watch this movie.
