Reviews
Mine: I know that many concider this the ugly step child of "Holiday Inn" on which it is loosly based, but this has two things that "Holiday Inn" does not; Danny Kaye and Vera-Ellen. Terrific dancing, great music.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Nice Irving Berlin score is unfortunately interrupted by limp plot of army buddies Crosby and Kaye boosting popularity of winter resort run by their ex-officer Jagger. ``What Can You Do With a General'' stands out as Berlin's least memorable tune. Partial reworking of HOLIDAY INN, not half as good. First film released in VistaVision.

Cute and fun but honestly not as classy as Holiday Inn.
