Two retiring show people start up a New England country inn with the unique and, one would think, self-defeating idea of being open only on national holidays; however, in this delightful fluff-fest, they achieve instantaneous success. Conflicts arise when they fall for the same woman, and sparks fly -as do their feet - in a variety of inventive, holiday themed song-and-dance productions. Perhaps the best film ever inspired by a song. Irving Berlin's "White Christmas" was introduced in this film.
Marjorie Reynolds' singing voice was dubbed by Martha Mears.
Bing Crosby was backed up by the Bobcats, a musical group under the supervision of Bing's brother Bob.
