Once Upon a Melody Time

ear those merry snow bells chime? That’s just this yuletide lullaby from Melody Time. This festive short was brought to us in 1948, care of the incomparable artistic vision of Mary Blair and directed by Hamilton Luske, who directed – among many other Disney classics – our personal favorite documentary: People and Places – Disneyland, U.S.A.! Featured here is also an angelically beautiful tune sung by Frances Langford. I feel this song is sorely overlooked as a holiday classic, but there’s no Wintertime like the present to start requesting it from your local holiday music station…..! So round up your chestnut mares, jingle those merry chimes, and enjoy with your Sweetheart… Once Upon a Wintertime.
