December 30 at 2pm: White Christmas (1954, 120 min)
White Christmas is a 1954 film musical directed by Michael Curtiz and starring Bing Crosby, Danny Kaye, Rosemary Clooney and Vera-Ellen Westmeyer Rohe. Distributed by Paramount Pictures, the film is notable for being the first to be produced and released in VistaVision, a wide-screen process developed by Paramount that entailed using twice the surface area of standard 35mm film. The story revolves around two World War II U.S. Army buddies, one a Broadway entertainer, Bob Wallace (Crosby), the other a would-be entertainer, Phil Davis (Kaye) who become romantically involved with a sister act (Clooney and Rohe) and team up to save the failing Vermont inn of their former commanding general.
