Bing Crosby croons to the tune of the Oscar-winning "White Christmas" in Irving Berlin's love triangle romantic comedy. Tired of the bright lights of showbiz, Jim Hardy (Crosby) retires to the countryside to become a farmer. He converts the farm into the Holiday Inn, open only on holidays, then competes against his pal (Fred Astaire) for a singer-dancer's (Marjorie Reynolds) affection.

Social Behavior

The movie is lighthearted and well-meant overall, but modern audiences are likely to be very taken aback by the Lincoln's Birthday number, which is performed in blackface and is decidedly not politically correct. Plus, Astaire's character tries -- twice! -- to seduce a girl away from his supposed friend.

Astaire's character weaves through a drunken dance.
