One of the most famous and best loved films of all time, White Christmas, was released 60 years ago tonight in 1954. The film featured the music of song master Irving Berlin, including the best selling song of all time by the same name, White Christmas.
The movie has a superstar cast of the time -- Bing Crosby, Danny Kaye, Rosemary Clooney, and Vera-Ellen. The film is roughly based on an earlier Irving Berlin musical movie, 1942's Holiday Inn.
The movie earned the most for any 1954 film by a wide margin.
