"Holiday Inn" was a very popular film when released in 1942. The musical was written by Irving Berlin who featured in his film many stars of the decade. Actor-singer Bing Crosby stars as Jim Hardy and features his hit song "White Christmas." Actor-dancer Fred Astaire stars as Ted Hanover who thrills the crowd with his astonishingly superior tap dancing. Jim is an easy-going man who wants to relax, away from the big-city life. Ted is all

Jim learned that sometimes he had to fight for what he wanted and have a little ambition. I love how, in the end, everyone who has been taken advantage of has still remained advantageous.
