The Bing

My family attended a special Christmas event at the Bing Crosby Theater in downtown Spokane. The theater honored its namesake and showed the 1954 film White Christmas, starring Bing Crosby, Danny Kaye, and Rosemary Clooney.

I have to admit that I attended the show mostly to appease my wife. She likes these kind of things more than I do.

Generally speaking, I tend to get bored when I watch old movies, but I was pleasantly surprised. I found myself laughing at all the funny parts, and even though I'm not the swooning type, Bing Crosby's singing voice held me spellbound. It's easy to see why he was so immensely popular.

Rhonda was right to make me go.
