"I'm ... DREAMING of a WHITE .... CHRISTMAS, Just Like the One I Used to Know!"

-- Synopsis: This perennial, Christmas-season favorite from 1942 teamed Bing Crosby and Fred Astaire as entertainers (and rival suitors of Marjorie Reynolds) with Bing running a country inn that is only open on holidays. It's a great excuse for lots of singing and dancing, seamlessly wrapped in a catchy story.

* An old-time Hollywood song-and-dance film and a great Christmas time movie for the whole family. Many songs and dances with a brief Jitterbug scene.
