As White Christmas was introduced to the world the holidays would forever get a precious gem that brings the heart of dance theatre and film all together. The performance of the whole cast is phenomenal, but Danny Kaye and his number in “Choreography” is my absolute favorite. Even in a snowless Vermont, the director Michael Curtiz, also of Casablanca, found an elegance in the landscape and every time I watch I become more aware of how much work went into building the sets and the whole production during that time of film. With The Eight Show of Christmas turn on some lights, curly up with some egg nog and watch a timeless treasure.
