Holiday Inn is a 1942 American musical film starring Bing Crosby and Fred Astaire, with music by Irving Berlin. The film has twelve songs written expressly for the film, the most notable being “White Christmas“. In addition the film features a brief use of “Oh! How I Hate to Get Up in the Morning“, written in 1917 for the World War I musical Yip Yip Yaphank (which was reprised on Broadway in 1942 under the title This Is the Army) and a complete reuse of “Easter Parade“, written by Berlin for the 1933 Broadway revue As Thousands Cheer. The film’s choreography was by Danny Dare.
