Merry Christmas from CrimProf Blog!

Here's a trivia question you can use to stump friends and family during the holiday season: In what movie was the song first sung that became the best-selling single record of all time? Answer after the jump.

The song is "White Christmas" by Bing Crosby, and so the natural impulse is to say that the movie is "White Christmas," but the song actually was previously performed in the movie "Holiday Inn."

Wow. I knew that the song had been written well before the movie came out, but I didn't know that it had actually been heard in an earlier movie.
