By 1954 the song White Christmas had become such a timeless classic
that it was inevitable that a film would be made around it. And of
course the star would be none other than Bing Crosby. But who to star
Originally this was to be the third Irving Berlin outing for Bing and
Fred Astaire. Then Donald O'Connor was to co-star, but finally Danny
Kaye teamed with Der Bingle. Proved to be a felicitous combination.
By then Rosemary Clooney had worked in a few films well and more
importantly, she had clicked with Crosby on the radio. Bing had teamed
with several girl singers over the years, like Connee Boswell, Frances
Langford, Mary Martin, Trudy Erwin, Carole Richards, Peggy Lee and a
trio of sisters named Andrews. But he always said Rosemary Clooney was
it for him and besides Mary Martin, the only other one who did became a
leading lady for him.
It's not remembered because of the success of her solo career, but
Rosemary Clooney started as a duo with her sister Betty who retired
early to raise a family. So with Vera-Ellen as her sister in the movie,
that was an aspect of the plot Rosemary could handle with ease.
The plot such as it is involves Bing and Danny as a song and dance duo
who've expanded into the production end of show business. Through a
little bit of a con game worked by Vera Ellen, the two meet a singing
sister act like the Clooney sisters were. The sisters turn out to be
headed to Vermont to work at a resort and the smitten guys go along
Problem is there ain't any snow there. It's an unheard of 68 degrees
Fahrenheit in early December. And the place is owned by Crosby and
Kaye's former commander from World War II, played by Dean Jagger. He's
about to lose his shirt and his pride. So our intrepid quartet go to
Irving Berlin's score for White Christmas is about half new songs and
the other half from previous scores. That's how it was when you got
Irving to work for you. Listen carefully even to the background music.
You will not hear one note of a non-Berlin song.
One of those songs was a personal favorite of mine, Count Your
Blessings Instead of Sheep. I recall in grade school in Brooklyn it was
a song that the teachers had us sing in the school assemblies. Little
did I know that it was introduced by the guy who proved to be my
favorite entertainer. It's a patented philosophical Bing Crosby song
that he did best and it serves as a ballad to woo and win Rosie. Bing
sings it and then Rosie joins him in the reprise.
Danny Kaye has two good numbers. The first The Best Things Happen While
Your Dancing is clearly originally for Fred Astaire, though Kaye and
Vera Ellen make a lovely couple on the dance floor. The Choreography
number I think was also done for Astaire, but here dancer John Brascia
does the complicated dance routine while Kaye sings. I'm sure Astaire
would have handled both jobs had the film been made with him.
All the stars do the Minstrel Show/Mandy number, but Vera Ellen really
shines in it. She was a great dancer, really sparkled in every film she
Besides Sisters, Rosemary Clooney has a grand torch ballad that sold a
few platters for her in Love, You Didn't Do Right By Me. She had a
wonderful singing voice and the most impeccable diction of any female
singer ever. You don't miss one throbbing word on any of her ballads.
White Christmas was Paramount's first film done in their wide screen
process called VistaVision. And of course it was proper that their
number one star for over 20 years be in this film. Of course jokes
about Bing's derrière and the wide screen got into the repertoire of a
certain comedian named Hope.
Just like the song that inspired it, White Christmas has proved to be a
timeless holiday classic and will remain so.
