Irving Berlin - Sisters from White Christmas

This scene was ad lib, with Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye reprising the song from Rosemary Clooney and Vera Ellen.  It started as Bing goofing around and everyone thought it was funny so they filmed it.  They filmed it several times because people were laughing so much that it was hard to get a clean take.  The laughter you see here is genuine.

The Queen Of The World and I was watching this, and she found this at 35 surprising "White Christmas" facts.

I love this movie in general (and like everyone else, I love the General).
I can't stand the song "Snow".
This version of Sisters is a lot of fun.
I did not know it was impromptu. Thanks.

But yet another reason why the better flick of the bookends was White Christmas.

Another "They don't make them like they used too" movies.

The division coming together at the end to help out their old commander always brings tears to my eyes.
