The Bing Crosby-Danny Kaye holiday favorite, “White Christmas,” is celebrating its 60th anniversary this year. And Paramount is releasing Tuesday a special Blu-ray edition of the film that also stars Rosemary Clooney and Vera-Ellen and features the music of Irving Berlin.

There are plenty of extras to get you into the holiday spirit, including five yuletide TV show appearances of Crosby and Kaye, a virtual duet between Crosby and Michael Bublé, a sing-along track and a CD of 12 Christmas tunes — eight of which have never been released — performed by Crosby, Kaye, Clooney, Ella Fitzgerald, Peggy Lee and Judy Garland.
