White Christmas

Trivia: The "Sisters" comedy act was completely improvised by Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye.

Trivia: The song "White Christmas" originally appeared in the 1942 movie "Holiday Inn," starring Bing Crosby alongside Fred Astaire, although the song is usually referenced back to this movie.

Trivia: In the scene where Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye are escaping the club where the sisters are performing, you see Bing Crosby hail a cab. Not withstanding that there happens to be a cab in the alley, but moreover, when Bing "whistles" you can here that he wasn't able to do it. It comes out as a "flub" sound. Not really a mistake, but kinda funny.

Continuity mistake: The train that transports The Haynes Sisters and Wallace and Davis from Florida to Vermont is shown as being of the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway in one sequence, and of the Southern Pacific Railroad in another. Neither railway ran on the east coast of the U.S.
