Musical comedy
This 1954 Paramount musical is a semi-remake of Holiday Inn (1942), which introduced the title song. Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye are a pair of nightclub performers who help an old army acquaintance (Dean Jagger) make a go of his resort hotel. Rosemary Clooney and Vera-Ellen provide the love interest, and the whole thing is rather forced and antiseptically cheerful. Michael Curtiz directed, a long way from Casablanca. With Sig Ruman, Grady Sutton, and Mary Wickes.

Screens as part of a double feature with It's a Wonderful Life (see separate listing). Fri 12/7, 9:45 PM; Sat 12/8, noon and 6:30 PM; Sun 12/9, 3:15 PM; Fri 12/14, 9:45 PM; Sat 12/15, 3:15 and 9:45 PM; Sun 12/16, noon and 6:30 PM; Fri 12/21, noon and 6:30 PM; Sat 12/22, 3:15 and 9:45 PM; Sun 12/23, noon and 6:30 PM; and Mon 12/24, noon.
