“Holiday Inn” follows Jim (Pinkham) leaving the bright lights of show business behind to settle down on his farmhouse in Connecticut… but life just isn’t the same without a bit of song and dance. Jim’s luck takes a spectacular turn when he meets Linda (Gayer), a spirited schoolteacher with talent to spare. Together they turn the farmhouse into a fabulous inn with dazzling performances to celebrate each holiday, from Thanksgiving to the Fourth of July. But when Jim’s best friend Ted (Bleu) tries to lure Linda away to be his new dance partner in Hollywood, will Jim be able to salvage his latest chance at love?
