Episode 150 -- Intermission: White Christmas

If you are dreaming of a Deucecast Christmas, with visions of Elf Mikey and Reindeer Dave and Sugarplum Pinky (Sugarpinky?) dancing through your heads, this is totally the Intermission for you!

The guys take on the 50s classic White Christmas, as Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye survive the war, go on tour with their dancing routine, meet up with Vera Ellen and Rosemary Clooney, and follow them to the Christmas paradise of Vermont. Entertainers all, it's time to do a benefit to raise money, fall in love, sing some memorable tunes and dance some memorable dances.

Answers to the burning questions that have been weighing on your hearts... is this a sequel to "Holiday Inn"? Who is that guy in the Bugs Bunny cartoons? And who liked it more (and less) than they thought they would?   Plus, we give a rundown of the main cast, who they are and what became of them...

And in a twist, the discussion takes a dive into the state of "musicals" in Hollywood, and why we fear the medium might be dying a slow death... sad trombone sound here.

It's a movie that really only has Christmas scenes in select parts of the movies, but is considered a Christmas classic to be cherished forever.


(Next week, on The Deucecast Movie Show Episode 151... The Deucecast Christmas Party, starring Mikey and Dave, with Pinky reporting in from a remote location in the woods somewhere!   Our favorite Christmas films (including... Jaclyn Smith?!), the report on the terrible holiday films we were forced to watch and more fun and frivolity!)
