Jim Hardy (Bing Crosby) and Ted Hanover (Fred Astaire) are a successful song and dance double act until Jim decides to retire and become a gentleman farmer following Ted's seduction of his girlfriend. Jim fails as a farmer, but decides to convert his property to an inn that is only open on public holidays. He also finds happiness with the lovely Linda Mason (Marjorie Reynolds) - that is, until Ted shows up! Packed with Irving Berlin songs, including 'Let's Say It With Firecrackers' and 'Easter Parade'. This is also the film which introduced 'White Christmas', a song that won an Oscar and spawned the movie with the same title in 1954.
