Why Bing Crosby's 'White Christmas' Is the Best Holiday Song Ever

11 hours ago | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Bing Crosby once joked that a "jackdaw with a cleft palate could have sung it successfully." But if it wasn't for Crosby's soothing rendition of the Irving Berlin classic, "White Christmas" probably wouldn't have gone on to become the biggest-selling single worldwide of all time. In the American Masters documentary Bing Crosby Rediscovered - which debuted earlier this month on PBS but will air again at 9 p.m. Et on Dec. 26 - director Robert Trachtenberg looks back at the indelible mark the song made on both history and the crooner's legacy.

I Have Never Seen ‘White Christmas’

24 December 2014 8:00 AM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Classic Christmas movies have never been my bag. I’ve still not seen It’s a Wonderful Life and I’m iffy on musicals, too. I don’t dislike them or anything, there’s plenty I’ve enjoyed. I just haven’t seen a lot of older ones. But hell, White Christmas is my sister-in-law’s all-time favorite, apparently, so I decided to give it a shot. Here’s what’s weird about White Christmas: It’s oddly modern. By that, I mean it does a lot of things that people decry as the death of Hollywood ideas today. For example, it’s a remake. Specifically, it’s based on Holiday Inn (yes, like the hotel chain — they’re named after the film) which was another Irving Berlin movie and also starred Bing Crosby. That famous song, “White Christmas”? It didn’t even come from this film. It came from Holiday Inn and they just re-used »

Our Christmas present to you: Dad sings Bing's 'White Christmas''

24 December 2014 6:07 AM, PST | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

On this Christmas Eve, I celebrate the holiday in Mentor, Ohio -- about 20 miles east of Cleveland with my family. That gang includes my sister Diane, her three (now grown-up) kids: Judy, Dennis and Keith. Dad (Frank), now 90, suffers from severe dementia, but he still recognizes me when I drop by his nursing home to visit. He can't talk, but he bolts upright in his wheel chair and flashes a holly jolly smile to welcome me from distant New York and Los Angeles. Merry Christmas, dad! Following a longtime tradition here at Gold Derby, I celebrate the Yuletide by sharing a recording of "White Christmas" I made years ago when my father still had full command of his wind pipes to mimic the sexy warble and pear-shaped tones of his hero, Bing Crosby.  -Break- Admit it: dad really nails it! Bravo, poppa! I'd give you a Grammy, but Bing never won one either. »

New Holiday Clip For Wild Card Embraces A Bloody Good Christmas

23 December 2014 4:23 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Seeing as we’re in the thick of the holiday festivities, Lionsgate have delivered their season’s greetings via a special promo clip for their upcoming actioner, Wild Card. Don’t be fooled, though. While the video has a holiday-themed edge – soundtracked by White Christmas – it’s not pulling any punches. If anything, it’s dishing out more as Jason Statham wipes the floor with a bar-load of baddies. It’s a cheeky teaser for the film as a whole, which arrives early next year.

Storywise, Wild Card revolves around Jason Statham’s badass Vegas bodyguard, Nick Wild. His deadly prowess comes to the fore after one of his best friends is killed by a local thug, and he commits to tracking down the assailant, who turns out to be the son of a mafia kingpin. It hits all the pertinent points required for a kick-ass Stath-fest, and with a script from William Goldman, »

The Most ’90s Christmas Specials To Ever Air

22 December 2014 8:25 AM, PST | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

-Mike “McBeardo” McPadden

Holiday specials date back to the earliest days of network television, when Jackie Gleason donned Santa garb on The Honeymooners and Desi Arnaz pumped up traditional carols with Cuban conga beats on I Love Lucy. Each decade since then has generated examples of “very special” episodes and one-off variety hours that, in hindsight, perfectly, and often hilariously, embody their era.

Think of A Charlie Brown Christmas and Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer in the ’60s; The Star Wars Holiday Special and The Donny and Marie Christmas Show in the ’70s; and Christmas Comes to Pac-Land and ’Tis the Season to Be Smurfy in the ’80s. The ’90s, of course, kept the tradition going with its own unmistakable (multiply pierced) earmarks. The decade of alterna-culture, outrageous cartoon debuts that weren’t just for kids, and the early Internet also begat its share of unmistakably of-its-moment December broadcast fare.

The 12 TV episodes of Christmas

22 December 2014 5:30 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

From Friends to 30 Rock, American TV has produced some cracking Christmas specials over the years. Here are our picks of the greatest

Christmas may be the most wonderful time of the year, but when it comes to regularly scheduled programming, it’s kind of a wasteland. We get Christmas Specials where musicians and Muppets spend the night quipping and crooning, but a dearth of ordinary television programming. But the American tradition to take a mid-season break at least tends to lend itself to a White Christmas treat before going off the air.

This year, there’s probably no better way to fill the television drought than to re-live the magic of 12 of the best Christmas episodes of normal shows. This is far from a complete list (maybe next year we’ll do the 50 TV episodes of Christmas), but if you’re in the mood for glad tidings for you and »

31 Facts You Didn't Know About Christmas

19 December 2014 11:41 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Tis the season to be...well informed. We all love Christmas, but how much do any of us actually know about why Christmas is the way it is? Here are 31 facts about Christmas trees, Santa Claus, and Rudolph that you (probably) didn’t know. Smarten up!

1. Christmas supposedly marks the birth of Jesus Christ on December 25. But there is no mention of December 25 in the Bible and most historians actually believe he was born in the spring.

2. December 25 was probably chosen because it coincided with the ancient pagan festival Saturnalia, which celebrated the agricultural god Saturn with partying, gambling, and gift-giving.

3. Many of the popular Christmas traditions today found their roots in Saturnalia: Branches from evergreen trees were used during winter solstice as a reminder of the green plants that would grow in spring when the sun gods grew strong.

4. These evergreen branches became the foundation of our Christmas tree. Germans are thought »

Netflix Run Brings U.K.’s ‘Black Mirror’ Into Light for U.S. Auds

18 December 2014 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

A bizarre and unsettling British sci-fi series that no traditional American TV network wanted to touch, “Black Mirror” has vaulted into the cultural zeitgeist Stateside after Netflix bought exclusive U.S. streaming rights for the show, whose two seasons originally aired on the U.K.’s Channel 4.

Netflix’s Dec. 1 domestic debut of the anthology series generated a crackle of excitement on social media — and drew renewed attention in Hollywood circles. Robert Downey Jr. was onboard back in 2013, when his Team Downey production company acquired rights to make a film at Warner Bros. based on the show’s “The Entire History of You” episode.

“Loved ‘Black Mirror,’ ” Stephen King tweeted Dec. 7. “Terrifying, funny, intelligent. It’s like ‘The Twilight Zone,’ only rated R.”

In fact, the show was conceived as a techno-paranoid 21st-century spin on the Rod Serling classic, according to exec producer Annabel Jones. “Black Mirror” — the title »

Black Mirror’s White Christmas Is One of Its Best Outings

18 December 2014 8:52 AM, PST | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Channel 4 debuted their much-anticipated Christmas-themed Black Mirror special this week, and it was very much worth the wait. Black Mirror exists as one of those frustrating British show that trades short, three-episode seasons with yawning gulfs in between them for high quality offerings. It’s probably worth it (like the similarly formatted Sherlock), but the waiting and scarcity of episodes can be exhausting. Series three of Black Mirror is in fact coming, but they wanted to participated in another British tradition in the meantime, the extended Christmas Special, something we’ve seen from The Office to Doctor Who to Downton Abbey over the years. Though Black Mirror has poached familiar faces over the years for its ensemble casts, the Christmas Special is the first to pull someone really, truly recognizable for its main lead, Mad Men’s Jon Hamm. It’s also the first time the show has had an American actor/character in… »

Some Crosby For Christmas

18 December 2014 4:00 AM, PST | Leonard Maltin's Movie Crazy | See recent Leonard Maltin's Movie Crazy news »

No entertainer is more associated with Christmas than Bing Crosby, who introduced Irving Berlin’s “White Christmas” in the 1942 movie Holiday Inn. His recording of the song remains the best-selling single of all time which, along with constant showings of the 1954 movie White Christmas, keeps the star in the public eye (and ear). His rendition of “It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas” has even made its way onto Billboard’s Top 100 chart this month, currently resting at #71. A recent installment of PBS’ American Masters has reinforced interest in all things Bing. There is no shortage of new Crosby product, including a new DVD collection from Universal called Bing Crosby:...
