Lovely Linda Mason has crooner Jim Hardy head over heels, but suave stepper Ted Hanover wants her for his new dance partner after femme fatale Lila Dixon gives him the brush. Jim's supper club, Holiday Inn, is the setting for the chase by Hanover and manager Danny Reed. The music's the thing. Written by

A turning point in the life of Alan Sues, a regular on Laugh-In (1967), was an unauthorized visit to Paramount Pictures as a teenager when he jumped a fence and watched a scene being filmed for this movie. See more »
When Jim enters Ted's Hollywood dressing room, he has his pipe on the left side of this mouth. The next shot shows it on the right side, although he has had neither time enough, or his hands free to move it. See more »
My father was a lot like you, just a man with a family. Never amounted to much, didn't care. But as long as he was alive, we always had plenty to eat and clothes to keep us warm.
Were you happy?
Then your father was a very successful man.

The source of the song "White Christmas" would be worth watching just for that, but in addition the movie has a bunch of wonderful dancing, and quite a lot of charming songs; "I'll Capture Your Heart Singing", "Come To Holiday Inn", "You're Easy to Dance With", "Oh How I Hate to Get up in the morning", "White Christmas", and "Happy Holiday" (all by Irving Berlin) are some of the highlights.
Anyone who is a fan of Crosby or Astaire will enjoy this movie. Marjorie Reynolds and Virginia Dale play perfect foils for Crosby and Astaire, supporting them.
The plot, what there is of it, is just enough to hang enough Muscial numbers on to keep the movie running along apace.
