Bing Crosby’s Oscar performance in "Going My Way" and singing the Oscar winning song "White Christmas in Holiday Inn" is only the beginning of two grand holiday treats. Remembering the war years and the theme of God and Country brings an assembly of American Patriotism to the screen. Hollywood War years role provides a generous dose with song and dance. For "Holiday Inn" (1942) a story based on an Inn only open during the 15 major holidays (1940’s) with grand scale entertainment being the main attraction. Crosby and Astaire were the top stars and could guarantee almost any movie to be a success. Irving Berlin’s grand song writing style proved he the needed ingredient for just about any holiday song. Proving the match of "White Christmas and Bing Crosby" to be the most popular holiday song teaming ever. Going My Way (1944) was Crosby’s launch into the Dramatic Actor role with his crooner abilities and witticisms carry him all the way to an Oscar. Father O’Malley (Crosby) a young Catholic priest comes to the rescue of a aging priest (Barry Fitzgerald Oscar winner for Best Supporting Actor), troubled church and neighborhood. It isn’t long before Father O’Malley brings them all (with us included) together as a community. On the success of "Going My Way" the very next year a sequel was made (Bell’s of Saint Mary’s ) with Crosby as Father O’Malley and Ingrid Bergman. (Great follow-up movie). These family movies are a great way to introduce kids to our past and classic black and white hollywood. This double feature DVD is a great value with fantastic picture quality and sound.
