The film club selection for December is White Christmas (1954).
Michael Curtiz’sWhite Christmas tells the tale of a successful song-and dance team, Wallace and Davis, becoming romantically involved with a sister act. After leaving the Army post WWII, Bob Wallace (Bing Crosby) and Phil Davis (Danny Kaye), become a successful song-and-dance duo. They meet and fall for sisters Betty (Rosemary Clooney) and Judy (Vera-Ellen) Haynes who also happen to have their own song-and-dance act. When the foursome arrives at a Vermont inn to perform a Christmas show, Wallace and Davis are surprised to find their former commander owns the place! A series of romantic mix-ups ensue as they all try to help save the inn.
The Library will screen White Christmas on Friday, December 15th at 1pm in the Marcy Room.
All Film Club Screenings are free and open to the public.
We also have DVDs you can borrow at the circulation desk!
