One of a Few Non-Christmas Winter Set Films We Enjoy Close To Christmas…

Abbott & Costello in Hit The Ice from 1943. Got some great swing courtesy of Johnny Long and his orchestra and the vocal stylings of Ginny Simms. I especially love these two songs, “the slaphappy dance” which takes place during a rather comical ice skating scene & “happiness bound” which is sung on a sleigh ride at the end. It’s definitely not their best film, but still thoroughly enjoyed around the holidays.

Below is one of the best exchanges of dialogue. The criminals think A&C are gunmen, whereas A&C are photographers. Classic.
