With music by Irving Berlin (including the one and only 'White Christmas'), songs sung by Bing Crosby and dancing by Fred Astaire, Holiday Inn is one of the most delightful and memorable musicals of all time!
Crosby plays Jim Hardy, a song and dance man who leaves showbiz to open a Connecticut inn. And Astaire plays Ted Hanover, Hardy's former partner and rival in love. And, of course, there are girls (Marjorie Reynolds, Virginia Dale), a Texas millionaire (Walter Abel) and plenty of lavish song and dance routines and spectacular production numbers.

I've always been a huge fan of Fred Astaire but in this film he simply drove me insane! Not that he didn't act the part well, if anything, he did it too well...proving how good any actor he was.
He portrays a man whose whole life is dancing and who ultimately falls for each of his dance partners oblivious to he hurts on the way i.e. Bing Crosby.
This is a classic, not a Christmas classic like some might say but great all the same.
For me; the definitive version of the film is White Christmas starring Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye, which has a lovely Christmas feel to it.
I've rated this DVD 5 fars as it contains lots of extras including a 45 minute extra feature.
