Of all the major Holiday Classics, it is vintage paper from the 1942 “Holiday Inn” that barely survived extinction.   Original movie posters and lobby cards have eluded collectors for decades as they seem to surface only ever several years.  Original movie paper for “White Christmas’ probably has about 5-10 times the population of “Holiday Inn”.  In our 40 years collecting we have only been able to find Two original lobby cards and a single one sheet. 

Even if you search eBay, you won’t find a single Original lobby card, only reproductions.   So, this week we are ecstatic to have discovered EIGHT of the ORIGINAL 1942 “White Christmas” lobby cards.

NOTE: We acquired Nine Original “Holiday Inn” lobby cards.  See the others below under “Other Treasures you Might Love”

Holiday Inn (Paramount, 1942). Lobby Card (11" X 14").
This wonderful film is highly regarded as one of Hollywood's greatest musicals. Bing Crosby plays a well-known singer who decides to open a countryside inn after his singing partner (Virginia Dale) deserts him to become Fred Astaire's dancing partner. Fortunately, he discovers Marjorie Reynolds at his inn, but she is spirited away by Astaire when Dale leaves him to get married. Ultimately, Crosby and Astaire join forces and end their rivalry. Featuring the music of Irving Berlin, the film debuts the classic song "White Christmas." Other songs include "Easter Parade," "Be Careful, It's My Heart," and "Abraham." 
One of the best Christmas themed movies of all time, this Paramount hit boasts a dream cast of Bing Crosby, Fred Astaire, Marjorie Reynolds, and Virginia Dale, and an unforgettable score by Irving Berlin. The most famous highlight of the picture is the first performance of "White Christmas," (sung by Crosby and Reynolds) which won the Academy Award for Best Song and went on to be the best-selling single of all time. Due to the song's resonance with wartime audiences, and immense popularity, Paramount created another Crosby holiday vehicle twelve years later, simply titled White Christmas.
Starring Bing Crosby, Fred Astaire, Marjorie Reynolds, Virginia Dale, Walter Abel, Louise Beavers, and Irving Bacon. Directed by Mark Sandrich. Unrestored lobby card that display signs of use. May include light edge wear.
