Episode 21: White Christmas

White Christmas

Songs, dancing, Edith Head gowns…who needs plot??

This week, Holiday Hams, Mike and Vinnie are exposed to that Christmas mainstay WHITE CHRISTMAS.

Directed by Michael Curtiz (CASABLANCA) with costumes by Edith Head and filmed in glorious VistaVision, it’s a visual treat.  The dance numbers are lavish, and the cast is glorious. The actual plot is… good enough to keep watching for the next dance number!

This movie is an annual tradition at Windy’s house having grown up with it, but we think it’s worth a watch no matter your traditions. Snappy dialogue, engaging relationships, and tunes galore – happy holidays from Windy, Mike, and Vinnie!
