I’m nursing a cold right now and W. C. would be a perfect tonic. Don’t you just wish you had a round fireplace like the one featured in the scene with the butter milk? And THANK YOU!! You have so much interesting information. She Runs a Bed and Breakfast. Thank you for your web site. Rosemary’s dress at the piano party is my favorite! Edith Head also worked for the NYC ballet company under George Balanchine and designed all of the incredible Nutcracker costumes! Thank you for all of the background info. I grew up watching this movie and it’s not Christmas until I see it…watched it 3 times this year. -Melissa. In fact, my daughter asked me to be quiet a couple times – can you imagine? Vera-Ellen was 33 and 7 years older, but she played Betty’s little sister Judy. We were all talking and visiting. Played the fictionalized version of Phyllis Harris on the "Phil Harris-Alice Faye Show" on radio. =-. I adore all these beautiful, light hearted movies from earlier times. One of your posters said the Christmas season went by so quickly, that she didn’t catch it, and I feel the same way! I always wanted a fire pit like that. UPDATE: I wrote a more recent post about this movie and its connection to “Holiday Inn” with better photos and more information that you can read here. In time I had a running part on the FANNY BRICE SHOW, but ONE MAN’S FAMILY was the longest-running gig I had, and it even lurked in the background while I was doing the PHIL HARRIS/ALICE FAYE SHOW for six years. That was interesting about Vera-Ellen. They make me cry everytime. The letter that paid off was the one to Carlton Morse, producer/director/writer of ONE MAN’S FAMILY. SPRINGFIELD — The city adopted a new ordinance that requires the registration and inspection of all bed-and-breakfast rentals, with a focus on ensuring the sites are good neighbors. The sets remind me of the Ethan Allen colonial-style interiors that my parents tried to replicate when I was a kid. Not especially. White Christmas is my all time favorite Christmas movie and you got some excellent shots so Thank You!!! From the number of comments here, it’s “mutual, I’m sure”! In fact, she even had me mimicking her on certain things, but the comedy thing I just had to learn by doing. Comedy is the hardest, and these writers were just so nervous. Both meals were worth the trip. Years ago–maybe on the 50th anniversary of the film?–my husband bought me a gift set that included a copy of Rosemary Clooney’s script. After seeing both Holiday Inn and White Christmas, I want to live in that inn! I love this movie…my father was a huge Bing fan all of his life and when this movie came out on video I bought a copy and gave it to him for Christmas….he got all choked up. Somehow I never really noticed the age difference when watching the movie. I love this movie and really loved your blog about it. Still have questions? Have you done a post on Holiday Inn? Don’t you love during hte movie how the General gets an important message in his ear? I,m also glad to see such interest in this wonderful movie .If this movie doesn’t get you in the Christmas spirit and appreciating life you haven’t got a pulse!! I hope your 2011 is wonderful! .-= Rhianna´s last blog ..Merry Christmas! .-= Denise´s last blog ..Magic at the Mill =-. LOL Love those huge barn doors they open on Christmas eve for the snow scene. By the way, supposedly Vera Ellen had the smallest waist in Hollywood….I believe it. What are five of Mel Gibson's best movies? What a lovely webpage! THANKS AGAIN Jimmy C. I love your blog! But when you have folks as brilliant as Danny Kaye and Bing Crosby in the cast, I guess some ad-libbing is to be expected! Thanks! I love White Christmas, and I’ll like watching it even more now. =-. Better go dust off the DVD. I would not have guessed that Vera’s voice was dubbed, but I’m glad they used her because she’s such an amazing dancer. I loved him with Bing in Holiday Inn, but Danny Kaye just seems to fit the role of Phil so well. I love that one, too! The theatre was so crowded, some of us had to sit on the steps in the balcony. I had the meanest bus driver, and he moved the bus from where he said he’d leave it. That same year, Anne Whitfield played young Susan Waverly in the popular holiday movie White Christmas; Anne’s movie career wasn’t quite as prolific as the one on radio, but she graced such gems as The Gunfighter (1950), The Miracle of Our Lady of Fatima (1952), Juvenile Jungle (1958), Senior Prom (1958) and The New Interns (1964). There was a generation gap there, and I don’t think the people there were particularly mentoring to kid actors. Do you remember his family Christmas shows? What was your favorite movie since you was a teenager? I used to watch it every year with my mom and now that she is gone this movie is very special to me. This was so well done! Q. WOW!! Wonder how it worked without getting smoke all over the place? What an absolutely beautiful post! Her birthday is August 27, 1938 and as of today (Friday December 4, 2015) she is 77 years old. They had this elegance that you don’t see in hollywood women today. Probably Jeanine, who played my older sister. I’m nuts for it! I have this movie on DVD, I’ll have to watch it with the commentary. And me . I love the movie “White Christmas”. How great that you gave us some insight to the behind-the-scenes. I’m so impressed with your research. My favorite dress of Rosemary’s is the black velvet one from the nightclub scene — would love to recreate it! Every bit of it…from beginning to end is my favorite. I remember my dad telling me that when he was in the army overseas during WWII and at Christmas and to just hear Bing sing “I’m Dreaming Of A White Christmas” would make the men cry because they missed home so much. xoxo Karena Art by Karena .-= Karena´s last blog ..Joyeaux Noel =-. He’d be standing up and wearing probably a suit or a sport coat with trousers, and he would grab his pants at the knee and jiggle them up and down on one leg, just one leg, toward the audience. She was an actress, known for White Christmas (1954), numerous TV shows and commercials, and a long radio career beginning in 1945 when she was seven. In the classic Christmas broadcast where Jack Benny is recruited to play Santa Claus, Little Alice can be heard admonishing her sister not to backslide on her good behavior or else she won’t receive any of Jolly St. Nick’s gift largesse. However, if they really did open those and it was that cold the whole room would have been so chilly. Thanks so much for this wonderful post! Most recently was “Its Complicated” – the movie was funnier than I expected and I droooooled over her kitchen! I was pretty down about the whole thing and then on Christmas morning the snow started coming down. .-= Pat´s last blog ..After Christmas Thoughts… =-. I loved Christmas in Connecticut and Meet me in St. Louis. You made my Christmas a lot more memorable this year for sure and I still have more to watch! Well, thank you very much for the wonderful synopsis of that classic movie. Anyway, I have never, ever seen this movie! I’ve always been more of a Danny Kaye girl <3. Q. . Happy Holidays! The train conductor…I think he was the voice of Winnie the Pooh. There are so many moments I love in this film. Im always hoping that somewhere out there in hollywood there is still one heart that is not tainted with modern values,that could find one more Holiday Inn, Its a Wonderful Life, White Christmas ,Good Sam, or Christmas Story. A. They were covered in rhinestones, so they would catch on anything I touched!”, Clooney explained in the commentary that “There were two stages at Paramount, and when they opened up the back (when it was snowing), that was the second stage behind us.”. I wanted to be that thin. She Runs a bed and Breakfast. Publicity Listings Just watched the commentary the other night which is so interesting. Found you while searching for pictures for my White Christmas in July blog party. Love sets! Thank you for doing an entry on White Christmas with some little known info included…very fun to read!!! Anne Whitfield’s signature role was as the younger daughter of Phil Harris and his actress wife, Alice Faye on their hit series…and she handled much of the program’s sharply written dialogue like a consummate pro. I never gave a thought to the age difference between the actors..that’s really something. And who doesn’t love “White Christmas”? Love sets! I love your butter cookie decorating tradition, what a great idea! In your opinion: what exactly is good and scary about the movies Halloween, The Shining & Psycho and stories like Dracula and Frankenstein? My mother didn’t have any. But other have disputed that claim, insisting it was just a style she preferred. I loved your take on this film…I just finished up my blog post on Vera-Ellen’s scene-stealing turn as the darling younger sister “Judy” (although she was older than Rosemary Clooney by several years!!). I loved the inn and made my own Columbia Inn sign- very much like the one in the movie. The singing…the dancing…the costumes…it’s all wonderful! The scene where Bing and Rosemary are having chicken and liverwurst sandwiches by the fire…one of my favorite songs ever. Fans of classic TV shows will also come across her many guest appearances on hit series such as Father Knows Best, The Donna Reed Show, Bonanza, The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis, Gunsmoke, Rawhide and Perry Mason. I was born in Mississippi in 1938. I managed to dvr quite a few of them and have really enjoyed watching them. Wow, Julia, some great insights I would never have known about this movie and cast! I stumbled on this site looking for a Columbia Inn Pine Tree Vermont sign which I found and purchased.I watch this movie several times during the holiday season and sometimes well after.
