Having left the Army following W.W.II, Bob Wallace and Phil Davis team up to become a top song-and-dance act. Davis plays matchmaker and introduces Wallace to a pair of beautiful sisters (Betty and Judy) who also have a song-and-dance act. When Betty and Judy travel to a Vermont lodge to perform a Christmas show, Wallace and Davis follow, only to find their former commander, General Waverly, as the lodge owner. A series of romantic mix-ups ensue as the performers try to help the General.Written by

BING and DANNY teamed for the first time to bring you a wonderful package of entertainment...the World's first film in VistaVision. And when they sing and dance with ROSEMARY and VERA-ELLEN it will warm you like Christmas punch! See more »
When the veterans reunite for the general's surprise, Bob refers to the opening scene when they were in "Montecatino", and the DVD subtitles reproduce this error. The actual WWII location was Monte Cassino, Italy. See more »
This film was the first feature to use the VistaVision Paramount logo. A new logo, created especially for wide-screen, this logo appears more realistic and features a shot of a canyon with trees around it. The sky is more distant in depth and is full of contrast. The Paramount logo is pretty much the same as before here. The screen credit "Paramount (with the "P" written in their corporate font) proudly presents the first picture in" first appears over the mountain, and then the VistaVision logo appears, then the Paramount logo plays as usual (with the final notes of the Paramount on Parade march, followed by a bell sound). The Paramount mountain, with minor variations until 1986, served as the basis for the company logo for more than 30 years. See more »
White Christmas is one of the best movie musicals of all times. The cast is a exquisite gathering of talent. The story covers music, theater, comedy, and drama; it is an exceptional classic. It would be hard to find another selection with the same synergy.
