White Christmas

Right at the start of White Christmas, the titular song is a haunting and effective number sung to a group of war-weary soldiers in Europe. By the end of the movie, the song has come to signify a sort of bland, middle-class "let's have a nice Christmas". (No wonder that Clark Griswold references this movie in his own quest for an unrealistically happy Christmas.) And what the F is up with the random attack on modern dance (the number "Choreography")?

FuzzyCo grade: B- (would be a C, but Danny Kaye brings it up a grade.)
