Holiday Inn Reviews

Three Movie Buffs

Although all the holiday's are covered, this is really a Christmas movie at heart. Overshadowed by its more famous (and overrated) remake, Holiday Inn deserves more credit than it gets.

This classic musical paired Bing Crosby and Fred Astaire for the first time.

One of Bing Crosby and Fred Astaire's most enjoyable and most commercially popular musicals, featuring Irving Berlin's iconic, Oscar-winning ballad, White Christmas.

Classic musical with some controversial material.

Crosby's easy, casual banter is just the right foil for Astaire's precision acrobatics, his wry, offbeat humor.

Not the best film for either of the film's stars, but Astaire proves that he can dance even without Ginger.

The film's highlight is a bang-up July 4th 'Let's Say It with Firecrackers' that finds Astaire in fine form.

Loaded with a wealth of songs, it's meaty, not too kaleidoscopic and yet closely knit for a compact 100 minutes of tiptop filmusical entertainment.

Holiday Inn offers a reason for celebration not printed in red ink on the calendar.

The Irving Berlin score, including 'Easter Parade' and 'Let's Say It with Firecrackers' (which gives Fred his best moment) makes up for the thin story.

Bing Crosby and Fred Astaire. Want more? Stir in the first singing of Irving Berlin's 'White Christmas' and 'Happy Holidays.'

Decent Films Guide

True to type, Crosby plays nice and Astaire shallow… The story writes itself, careful never to get in the way of big production numbers for every holiday on the calendar.

Call it old-fashioned or old Hollywood fluff, Holiday Inn is a sweet, pleasant slice of another time in pop entertainment.

Great songs and stars and a pretty good script, too

One of Astaire's low points, but with a sensational 4th of July dance number.

Despite not being the success it could have been, this can still inspire a festive glow.

Holiday Inn, is, of course, filled with the kind of pretty Christmas songs and picture-postcard scenes of snow and horse-drawn sleighs that make for beloved holiday movies. But there's also some darkness lurking here.
