Holiday Inn - 1942
Posted on 12/20/2005 5:10:01 PM PST by dakine
Lovely Linda Mason has crooner Jim Hardy head over heels, but suave stepper Ted Hanover wants her for his new dance partner after femme fatale Lila Dixon gives him the brush. Jim's supper club, Holiday Inn, is the setting for the chase by Hanover and manager Danny Reed. The music's the thing.

(I'm not blunting.)
It's a beautiful bit of film.
AMC has cut out some parts of it for the TV audience, of course.

(Live simply so that others may simply live!)
never saw but isn't this the film that introduced "White
Christmas"? (the _movie_ "White Christmas" came later...)
(and also of course inspired hotel chain name()
AMC cut out some parts? Let me guess - the Lincoln's Birthday part? I love the scene where Bing surprises the girl while she's singing White Christmas.

Of course, you all know that a hospitality entrepreneur was so enamored of this movie that he founded a motor hotel and named it Holiday Inn!!!
Nor so trivial a pursuit!
You guessed it.
It is still an excellent movie, and yet, the White Christmas surprise is the best part.
Happy FReeping, and have a wonderful Christmas.
