This is a sweet musical!! The songs are catchy. The storyline is sweet. And Linda Mason is awesome!! There's not the huge dance numbers of White Christmas, but there are several tap dances! And Bing Crosby sings a lot!!
I Can't Tell a Lie~ (I'm skipping songs, but I'm just hitting my favorites :D) I like this song 1) for it's lyrics, and 2) for it's dance. Ted and Linda are dancing a nice 1700's minuet together, but whenever Ted tries to kiss Linda, Jim changes the music style to a swing! Awesomely awkward dance transitions follow!!

The Easter Parade ~ A sweet song by Bing Crosby. I might be wrong, but I think that this song is also used in the movie Easter Parade? BTW, I almost want to wear that bonnet. Almost...
Let's Say it with Firecrackers/Freedom~ Nice patriotic song by Bing Crosby, but Fred Astaire dances with firecrackers!!!
|This is actually the first time they sing this song, but who cares?|

A word about characters and actors: Because of this movie, I don't really like Fred Astaire. His character is no good, and since this is the first movie I saw with him, my first impression of him was not that great... Also Mamie, the cook, is a wonderful secondary character!
I love this movie!! It's my second favorite Christmas movie!! (1. White Christmas 2. Holiday Inn 3. Window Wonderland) So yeah, you should watch this movie!!!
P.S. Have I used the word "sweet" enough? :D
