Paramount at the Movies Presents: White Christmas [NR]
Movies | 12/4/2022 | 2:00PM & 6:00PM
Wearing a mask while inside the Theater is optional.
Two World War II buddies, Bob (Bing Crosby) and Phil (Danny Kaye), create a top song-and-dance routine that really wows the crowds. They cross paths with two beautiful sisters (Rosemary Clooney and Vera-Ellen) who also perform a song-and-dance act. Smitten with the sister act, Bob and Phil follow the duo to an inn in Vermont, which they find is owned by their former commanding officer (Dean Jagger). Realizing the inn is failing, the foursome perform a musical extravaganza to save the business.

Did You Know?
- Although Dean Jagger was made out to be the “old man,” Bing Crosby was actually six months older than Dean in real life.
- Vera-Ellen’s singing voice was dubbed. Numerous sources mistakenly assume Rosemary Clooney sang Vera-Ellen’ s part in “Sisters”, thus dueting with herself, but Trudy Stevens (who was Trudy Stabile at the time) was Vera-Ellen’s voice double in all of her songs, namely “Sisters”, “Snow”, and the “White Christmas” finale.
- In the scene before the “Sisters” song, Judy and Betty are talking about their brother. Betty asks Judy if she read the letter from their mother that said their brother “has a job in Alaska and he’s been out of the country for three months”. He was out out of the country, because Alaska wasn’t a state until January 1959.
