Guess what was on TV last night?
Oh, darn, you guessed it!
The fact that they used the same set for the inn makes it feel like coming back home.
However, the 1942 film has a ‘blackface’ performance, which is nowhere to be seen in 1954, even though there is a reference to a Minstrel show. And in those 1950’s days of white bread, it’s not surprising that there are no cast members from visible minorities.
And the ending, seen above, has a gaggle of awkward dancing children, which I found a bit off-putting. No doubt they were related to members of the film crew.
But the song, as always, is worth the price of admission, especially sung by Bing Crosby and Rosemary Clooney. And with a bit of luck, their dream will come true, this year.
