Irving Berlin songs are the real draw in this film as Phil and Bob (Danny Kaye and Bing Crosby) come to the aid of their ex-military boss Maj. Gen. Waverly (Dean Jagger) who needs a boost in his struggling winter resort. Accompanied by singing sisters Betty and Judy (Rosemary Clooney and Vera-Ellen), Phil and Bob travel to Vermont and make plans to put on a musical show to raise needed funds for Waverly. Songs include "White Christmas," "Sisters," and "Blue Skies"–and "Count Your Blessings Instead of Sheep" was nominated for an Oscar for Best Song.
