Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye, along with VistaVision, keep the enteratinment going in this fancifully staged production, clicking well.
The directorial handling by Michael Curtiz gives a smooth blend of music (13 numbers plus snatches of others) and drama, and in the climax creates a genuine heart tug that will squeeze tears. The plot holding the entire affair together has Crosby and Kaye, two Army buddies, joining forces after the war and becoming a big musical team. They get together with the girls and trek to Vermont for a white Christmas. The inn at which they stay is run by Dean Jagger, their old general, and the boys put on a show to pull him out of a financial hole. Crosby wraps up his portion of the show with deceptive ease, shuffling a mean hoof in the dances and generally aquitting himself like a champion. Kaye takes in his stride the dance, song and comedy demands of his assignment, keeping Crosby on his toes at all times. Variety Staff / December 31, 1953
