Hot Docs Holiday Classics: Celebrate the holidays with your favourite seasonal films.
Michael Curtiz’s timeless Christmas musical is back! Irving Berlin’s excellent score features many cherished Christmas songs, including the film’s namesake “White Christmas” itself! Bob Wallace (Bing Crosby) and Phil Davis (Danny Kaye) are old army buddies and entertainers, and they set out to save their friend’s struggling inn in Vermont with a grand gesture—and hopefully win over their sweethearts in the process. Ever since its release in 1954, White Christmas has been a perennial holiday favourite, as generation after generation of filmgoers have fallen in love with its music, dance and charm.
- Daily Telegraph - "A good musical with a lot of star power."
- Empire - "Great songs, gentle humour and a dose of syrup."
- Time Out - "A hearty and humorous 1954 festive romp."
- Variety - Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye keep the entertainment going in this fancifully staged production."
