Holiday Inn - 1942
Movie: Holiday Inn - 1942
Director: Mark Sandrich
Synopsis: One third of a successful New York song and dance trio, Jim Hardy (Bing Crosby) announces to his partner Ted Hanover (Fred Astaire) that he is giving up the rat race of show business, and moving to the Connecticut countryside, along with his fince - the third partner Lila Dixon (Virginia Dale). Not ready to quit, Ted lands a better job, and steals Lila away - she isn't really ready to quit either. After a year of unsuccessful farming, Joe visits Ted and Lila in New York and falls in love with Linda Mason (Marjorie Reynolds) a beautiful shopgirl. Lila leaves Ted for a Texas millionaire. Everyone gets drunk and when Joe comes up with the idea for a Connecticut nightcub that is only open on Holidays, the venue is set for reconciliation. A Christmas classic, with songs by Irving Berlin - including "White Christmas".
Scene: After finishing their Christmas Eve performance, scheduled to be their last, Joe is about to bid farewell to Ted when he learns that Lila is staying behind.
Monogram: Lila's dressing gown - with a very large monogram LD, surrounded by a looped decorative border, done in metallic roping, on the upper left shoulder. The same monogram, in the same size, also appears on the front right pocket of the robe.
