FARGO This Friday, the Fargo Moorhead Community Theatre premieres its production of “White Christmas” the story of two successful song and dance men, the sister act they fall for and their efforts to put on a show to help save the Vermont Inn owned by their beloved Army commander.
The production was inspired by the 1954 romantic movie musical starring Bing Crosby, Danny Kaye, Rosemary Clooney and Vera Ellen.
Full of Irving Berlin music, grand sets, costumes and spectacular choreography, it consistently ranks in top 10 lists of most popular Christmas movies.
So what has been striking a chord with audiences for more than 60 years? Why is it so popular?
Perhaps, it’s because it gives all of us going through the hustle and bustle of the holidays a chance to slow down and completely suspend reality. Maybe we could hang out in at the idyllic Vermont lodge with Bing, Danny, Rosemary and Vera Ellen just for a few far fetched minutes.
We could ask ourselves what would life be like if we lived in a “White Christmas” world?
Sister acts would be all the rage
Sisters would walk around in matching big floofy dresses, holding giant blue feather fans and shooing away “misters” who come between them.
On the flip side, sisters fighting over a man would no longer go on “The Jerry Springer Show”. They’d air out their differences with a little choreography, including several seconds of staring into the camera so Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye can decide which one of you they have a crush on.
Not to mention, you wouldn’t have to work that hard it appears your sister act consists of just one song.
We’d be stylish all the time
Imagine a Vermont Inn today around Christmas time. Most likely you’d see people hanging out by the fire in fuzzy socks, UGGS, big sweaters, maybe even sweatpants hardly high fashion.
But apparently 1954 Vermont Inn loungewear for women involved beautiful full circle skirts with cinch waists and glamorous pencil skirts and heels. Men wore suits with ascots while playing horseshoes and perfectly color coordinated shoes to match their suits.
Even as Rosemary Clooney falls asleep crying when she learns her sister is leaving the act, she’s in full makeup, including ruby red lip gloss. (No doubt, the maids at the inn were thrilled having to wash those pillowcases in the morning.)
