Get dressed up in your snazzy holiday best and sing along with Bing Crosby, Rosemary Clooney, Danny Kaye, Vera-Ellen, and the film’s remastered soundtrack – plus a theatre full of your fellow snow-dreaming San Joseans – at our special holiday screening of this classic 1954 film, presented with lyrics on screen and free jingle bells and all the sing-a-long accoutrements.
Irving Berlin’s musical favorite follows the talented song-and-dance team of Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye, who join forces with the sister act of Rosemary Clooney and Vera-Ellen for a musical Christmas in Vermont. After leaving the Army after W.W.II, Bob Wallace (Bing Crosby) and Phil Davis (Danny Kaye) team up to become a top song-and-dance act. Davis plays matchmaker and introduces Wallace to beautiful sisters Betty (Rosemary Clooney) and Judy (Vera-Ellen) who also have a song-and-dance act.
When Betty and Judy travel to a Vermont lodge to perform a Christmas show, Wallace and Davis follow, only to find their former commander, General Waverly, is the lodge owner. A series of romantic mix-ups ensue as the performers try to help the General.
