The four principal actors are great, but check out the underrated work of male dancer John Brascia, who appears in many of the musical numbers.

As bloger/critic James Wolcott pointed out, White Christmas is a rare Christmas film classic for grown ups.

This movie was a must in my family growing up and it is in my own family too. It embodies everything Christmas should be about. It's very entertaining and the sister's song was sung by all the sisters in my family every year (the brothers too).

I grew up with this movie. So good! ^_^

I have to disagree with you, ostwald, my whole family watched and we were all (parents not included) under the age of 13. Sweet movie. Very funny. Some of the conflicts make you think about the importance of totally open communication.

Phil Davis: I want you to get married. I want you to have nine children. And if you only spend five minutes a day with each kid, that's forty-five minutes, and I'd at least have time to go out and get a massage or something.
Bob Wallace: You don't expect me to get serious with the kind of characters you and Rita have been throwing at me, do you?
Phil Davis: Well, there've been some nice girls, too, you know.
Bob Wallace: Oh yeah, yeah. Like that nuclear scientist we just met out in the hall.
Phil Davis: All right, they didn't go to college. They didn't go to Smith.
Bob Wallace: Go to Smith? She couldn't even spell it.
Phil Davis: Oh, that's very funny. Ho, ho, ho. The crooner is now becoming the comic.

Doris: Well, I like that! Without so much as a "kiss my foot" or "have an apple."
