Happy Thanksgiving from Bing

Here’s to a Happy Thanksgiving to all of you and hoping that you are having a better time than Bing Crosby sings this song in “Holiday Inn” (1942).

Few classic films talk about Thanksgiving but if you are looking for some before jumping into Christmas movies here are a couple:

Holiday Inn (1942): It is mainly considered a Christmas film, but all holidays, including Thanksgiving, are celebrated in this movie.

Miracle on 34th Street (1947): This also is mainly a Christmas film, but the movie starts off with the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade and Maureen O’Hara coordinating the parade. Natalie Wood watches the parade from  John Payne’s apartment window and later invites Payne to dinner.

Plymouth Adventure (1952): Gene Tierney, Spencer Tracy and Van  Johnson don’t sit down and eat a turkey dinner during the film, but it is the story of pilgrims traveling over on the Mayflower to the new world.

Happy Thanksgiving all!
