The Holiday Inn Christmas Tree Dissolve
A shameless plug.
Holiday Inn, the delightful Fred Astaire and Bing Crosby musical for all seasons, is one of the films up for discussion in the hotly anticipated December 22 Lickona/Marks Christmas cover story.
Needless to say, I revisited the venerable holiday classic and its trailer, where I found this appealing bit of holiday optical trickery. Correct me if I'm wrong, but this is the only Christmas tree dissolve it's been my pleasure to experience.
