This Christmas classic starring Bing Crosby is a romantic tale that takes place in a Vermont lodge- where it is almost always, a "White Christmas."
It may be too sweet for some, but this unabashedly sentimental holiday favorite is too cheerful to resist.
Paramount's first film in (lavender-hued) VistaVision was this pornographically soppy but, nonetheless, hearty and humorous 1954 festive romp.
Director Michael Curtiz has made his picture look good. It is too bad that it doesn't hit the eardrums and the funnybone with equal force.
Something of a forced march, but worth seeing for its old-school studio vibrancy and for Curtiz's ability to compose for depth as well as breadth within the widescreen frame.
Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye, along with VistaVision, keep the enteratinment going in this fancifully staged production, clicking well.
This 1954 holiday classic, directed by reliable studio hand Michael Curtiz (Casablanca), is sentimental, contrived and stiffly silly, yet it still charmed its way to become the biggest hit of its year...
Kaye is superb, especially in his knockout dance routine with Vera-Ellen, and the direction from veteran Michael Curtiz rightly embraces the sentiment rather than keeping it at bay.
The whole thing is rather forced and antiseptically cheerful.
A good musical with a lot of star power.
Great songs, gentle humour and a dose of syrup which is not to everyone's tastes, but worth buying to keep that Christmas spirit going until next year.
