Format: DVD
"White Christmas" begins on the battlefield during World War II, on the fateful night when Danny Kaye saves the life of Bing Crosby and used the leverage to create what would be one of the most successful song-and-dance teams after the war. One night they check out the act of two sisters played by Rosemary Clooney and Vera-Ellen, and the next thing they know the boys are on their way to Vermont where the girls are supposed to perform at a ski lodge. However, there are two big surprises up in Vermont: there is no snow and the inn which is threatened with financial ruin is run by General Waverly (Dean Jagger), their commander during the war. Of course, Bing is interested in pursuing Rosemary, while Danny is too busy trying to move that along to notice Vera-Ellen is after him.
This is one of the films I have to watch every Christmas or else the Holidays just do not seem right. Of course, this makes no sense because "White Christmas" does not seem like it has the makings of a Christmas Classic. The magic is due mainly to the songs of Irving Berlin, which in addition to the beloved title song includes "Count Your Blessings Instead of Sheep," "Blue Skies" and "The Best Things Happen While Your Dancing." Since they are putting on a show, there are all sorts of production numbers from the rehersal and the performance. The most memorable might be the version of "Sisters" done by Crosby and Kaye (which Bing was not happy to do, but you will never know by watching the one take). For me, the reason to watch this film each year is to get to the end. There is just something about when Jagger comes down those stairs that gets to me. Nothing like a happy ending to get you in the mood for Christmas, with or without snow (fortunately, where I live, that is never a problem).

White Christmas is by no means an excellent musical. It is however a pleasant one. Seeing it on blu-ray is a new experience altogether though. White Christmas was the first film ever to be made in the 70mm VistaVision process, and the image quality, especially the sharpness and the vibrant colours are absolutely breathtaking. Watching White Christmas in high definition was like seeing the movie for first time, that's how big the difference is between a dvd version and this blu-ray.

What a classic. I have always been a fan of musicals but White Christmas has always been my number one. I first watched it at about 13 and now I can say the script to you straight off. At only 22 now there are not many people whose favourite film in the entire world is one that features Bing Crosby. BIng Crosby and Danny Kaye bounce off of eachother incredibly well and I cant think of anybody who would play the part of Betty any better than Rosemary Connelly. I know that some people think that I am a bit of a soppy tart but hey, everyone has a soft side, Bing just does it to me in this film as I am certain that other women will agree. I would like to also point out that I have not been able to find a copy of the film in any of the shops .... thanks Amazon.

One of Hollywood's best; paper thin plot, poor continuity, but it is still so outstandingly good a musical you can forgive them anything.

This DVD version has good sound, but alas the picture has clearly not been re-mastered. Some weave and hop and film noise are still there at the start but disappear as you get deeper into the print. However, it is not as high a technical quality as Singin' In The Rain (2 Disc Special Edition) [DVD] [1952]. That being said this DVD of White Christmas is way, way better than my VHS copy.

An essential part of ones collection.

WHITE CHRISTMAS remains the finest and most loved Christmas movie of all time. Great performances by all four principal stars, Bing's singing, Kaye's dancing and clowning, Clooney's beautiful voice and Vera-Ellen's ballerina dancing all contribute to an unforgettable experience.

But the best thing about this BluRay disc is the absolutely stunning quality of the picture. The Technicolor is as beautiful as it was in 1954, a lovely restoration, and it is as sharp as a needle - due of course to having been originally shot in VistaVision.

If you have a projector this movie can be blown up to a 12ft wide picture with pin sharp definition which actually beats a 35mm print of the same movie. I know, I have tried it!

White Christmas - the movie

This must surely be the archetypal Christmas movie (Paramount, 1954)! It starred Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye (who was brought in to replace an injured Donald O'Connor). Vera-Ellen and Rosemary Clooney play a pair of singing sisters whose charm entices entertainers Crosby and Kaye to journey to Vermont for the winter snow. In Vermont they stay at an inn run by an old army buddy, played by Dean Jagger, and with Mary Wickes as the long-suffering housekeeper. You may remember her playing the same role in Doris Day movies a couple of years earlier. The inn is in financial trouble because of a lack of winter snow (global warming even then!) so Crosby and Kaye bring the cast of their New York show to Vermont to put the show on there and - the snow falls right on cue as the show opens. Robert Alton choreographed the two big ensemble numbers.

The film score was by Irving Berlin with a host of fine tunes: a reprise for `White Christmas' (first heard in Holiday Inn, Paramount, 1942); `The best things happen while you're dancing' (Kaye and Vera-Ellen); `Sisters' (well, you know who, and reprised by Crosby and Kaye in drag), `Count your blessings', `Love, you didn't do right by me', `Snow', `Heat wave', and others. Though the plot was hardly gripping, this was a thoroughly enjoyable family film that deserves its many repeats on television.
