The season-to-be-merry is rushing in. To herald its arrival, Iconista watched Holiday Inn again.
She could dissect it for you Gun-style, but frankly she ain't that diligent.
Bing sings. Fred dances. A couple of dames make pretty for the camera.
The dialogue was sharper than Iconista remembers.
Dame #1, choosing Fred over Bing, simpers dreamily: "The two of us, dedicating our lives to making people happy with our feet."
Bing, stung: "That's sweet. Well, I guess that kick I got was a good start."
Iconista always feels a little sad for the dames. One minute a movie star; next, vanished into obscurity. Let's raise a glass to them and hope there was something sweet waiting behind the camera after the bright lights had guttered.
