"The Greatest Story Ever Told" (1965)

"Holiday Inn" (1942)

Bing Crosby and Fred Astaire star in this holiday-themed musical enjoyable all 12 months of the year. Jim Hardy (Crosby) and Ted Yanover (Astaire) are rivals, both trying to win over Linda Mason (Marjorie Reynolds) at an inn open only on holidays. Irving Berlin's music brings to life this year-round classic.

"Easter Parade" (1948)

There's a reason Irving Berlin's music is featured twice on our list -- he's the best at what he does. Judy Garland and Fred Astaire sing and dance their way through Berlin-penned numbers as they prepare for an upcoming Easter parade.
