    Bring back Holiday Inn – It is a classic and one of my favorite Christmas movies. I am sick of the Hallmark movies they are the same old thing. keep the classics.

      I agree…the reason that it is racist is so stupid. Too bad people can’t get over it and just enjoy the charm, music and great acting that it really delivers…especially at Christmas. Bring it back!!!

    “Holiday Inn” has not been shown on TCM for years. What a shame!!!! This is the “movie” where Bing Crosby introduced Irving Berlin’s song “White Christmas” which won the Academy Award for Best Original Song in 1942. I prefer the “Holiday Inn” version over the 1955 “White Christmas” movie featuring Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye. Please TCM, bring it back to TV !!!!

      Sad to see that a true classic won’t be aired. My children have grown up watching this movie with me. It’s like not seeing A CHRISTMAS CAROL. That just doesn’t make any sense. Please bring it back and add it before Christmas. Great movie with great actors and clean fun. Love the movie as well as the music

    I cannot believe Holiday Inn is not playing this Holiday Season. This is an all time classic.
