I almost, almost forgot to share my latest Christmas Classics wallpaper today!
 
But, I didn't, and here it is...
 
.....
 
Presenting Bing Crosby and Fred Astaire in...Holiday Inn!
 
{Full size image located on the Graphic Design page}
 
Allow me to make a confession - I saw this movie for the first time this year.  *collective gasp*
 
I know - shocking isn't it?  I mean, me?  The classic movie lover?  And I saw this movie for the first time this year?!  Well, it may be shocking, but that's the brutal truth.
 
Anyway, I saw it for the first time, and, while it's not on my list of very favorite movies, you really can't beat Bing Crosby's singing and Fred Astaire's dancing! 
Confidentially, I couldn't stand ("And I can't stan' him!";) the character played by good ol' Light-bulb Head...er, Fred.  I know you're not really supposed to like him, but...let's just say I had to watch a different Fred Astaire movie to make me stop wondering why I ever thought he was a nice guy;)  I believe Royal Wedding fixed that...
 
And may I further say that some morning I am going to wake up to the ringing of my alarm clock, I am going to seize said clock, and I will throw it against the wall, and I will probably wind up in an insane asylum...just sayin'.
 
I won't say any more, because I don't want to give the plot away to any of my dear readers who haven't seen this movie (please tell me I'm not the only one!), but I definitely enjoyed this movie:)
 
.....
 
Until next time, on Wallpaper Wednesday...
 
"Goodbye, good luck, and may the good Lord take a likin' to ya!"

Well, don't feel too bad, because I've never seen this movie. Didn't even know who was in it! Bing Crosby doesn't even look like himself in that pic. He must be really young.
 
Ya know, one quality of an exceptionally good actor is, I suppose, to convincingly play an un-likable character :) (At least, that's what I like to tell myself... :)
 
I need to see this movie.

I feel much better;)  I know!  I was like, "That's Bing?!"  I think this movie was made about 12 years before White Christmas.  Actually, Bing sings "White Christmas" in this movie.  Kind of interesting.  There are a few other familiar Irving Berlin songs as well...
 
Hmm...I suppose you're right.  Great acting, Fred!;D
 
I think you'd like it:)
