Dec. 14: Holiday Inn (1942)
Senior Cinema Social Finale is the Oscar winning holiday classic “Holiday Inn” (1942) This perennial, Christmas-season favorite teams screen legends Bing Crosby and Fred Astaire as entertainers (and rival suitors of Marjorie Reynolds) running an inn that is only open on holidays. It’s a true showcase for lots of singing and dancing, seamlessly wrapped in a catchy story. The Irving Berlin numbers (each one connected to a different holiday) are winners, while Crosby’s warm performance of “White Christmas” becomes a movie touchstone (and winner of the Oscar for Best Song)!
