Contractual obligations to Columbia records prevented Rosemary Clooney from recording the cast album for the movie “White Christmas”, because it was with Decca; Peggy Lee stepped in for the official movie release. Clooney got her due with a Columbia release with selected songs from the movie. Also, MCA was afforded the same opportunity to use selected songs from the film with Crosby, Kaye and Peggy Lee.
