White Christmas (1954)

maverickEpisode 181: The second film in our pairing of musicals written specifically for the silver screen, we move ahead two years to the film that signified Paramount unveiling their new widescreen technology which they called "VistaVision!" "White Christmas," directed by Michael Curtiz, finds Bob Wallace (Bing Crosby) and Phil Davis (Danny Kaye) celebrating Christmas at the front in Germany, 1944, where they're giving their regiment a holiday program on Christmas Eve, which is also when their respected commander, Major General Thomas F. Waverly (Dean Jagger), is being transferred. Phil saves Bob from a collapsing building, thus setting the stage for Phil bamboozling Bob into starting a two-man act after the war. After they become quite successful, they're asked to review the Haynes Sisters act by an old pal from the army. This leads them to change their plans and head to Vermont with Betty (Rosemary Clooney) and Judy (Vera Ellen) Haynes, where they find a warm-weather-locked skiing inn. And, as it turns out, the inn is run by someone they know from way back, and they hatch a plan to help save the inn from the lack of business caused by the high temperatures! Plus, find out what two films the trio will be talking about for Christmas this year!
