The movie “White Christmas” keeps popping up. I awoke from my nap on Monday to hear the song “Sisters.” My wife was playing the DVD as she made Cracker Candy and Cappuccino Cookies for Friday night’s All Saints Christmas party.
A 22-year-old coworker told me on Saturday that “White Christmas” is her favorite Christmas film. She said she loved old movies. I asked her an old trivia question that I always enjoy: “In what movie did the song ‘White Christmas’ first appear?” The answer is “Holiday Inn,” a film she had never even heard about, that happens to be one of my all-time favorites.
I gave her a brief recap of the plot of “Holiday Inn,” including the controversial blackface number. According to IMDB, “Holiday Inn” will be broadcast on AMC on December 16 at 12:30 a.m. They will replay it on December 23 at 9:00 a.m. and December 25 at 2:00 a.m.
