"Holiday Inn," featuring a knockout score by composer Irving Berlin (including the quintessential holiday anthem "White Christmas"), will be re-released on DVD in a new Special Edition on October 10th.
Bing Crosby plays a song and dance man who leaves showbiz to run an inn that is open only on holidays. Fred Astaire plays his former partner and rival in love. The two talented pals soon find themselves competing for the affections of one lovely lady (Marjorie Reynolds) in this breezy musical comedy, which won a 1942 Academy Award for Best Song ("White Christmas.")
"Holiday Inn" will feature an all-new digitally remastered picture and never-before-seen bonus material.
Universal Studios Home Entertainment says that bonus materials will include a 45-minute featurette "A Couple of Song and Dance Men," the original theatrical trailer, plus audio commentary with film historian Ken Barnes and archive audio comments from Fred Astaire and Bing Crosby.
The film will be presented in full screen with audio in English (Dolby Digital 2.0 Mono).
