REVIEWS & SUMMARIESAuthor Notes
Blackface number submitted by willow on August 1, 2015, 9:53am Features Bing Crosby performing "Abraham" in blackface, along with the entire staff of the Holiday Inn (including the band). Cut in is Louise Beavers as housekeeper "Mamie," singing along to her children, including the lines, "Who was is set the darkie free?"
Good, but I prefer White Christmas submitted by kimberlina on June 15, 2020, 4:41pm We traditionally watch either this movie or White Christmas around the winter holidays. While this one is good, I prefer White Christmas. I think the song and dance numbers in White Christmas are fantastic!
