Judy Garland ■ Fred Astaire
Don Hewes (Fred Astaire) is devastated when his longtime dancing partner, Nadine Hale (Ann Miller), breaks up the team to set out on her own. Determined to prove that he can succeed without her, Astaire vows that he can pick any random chorus girl and make her a star. Fortunately for him, the chorus girl he picks happens to be one of the greatest entertainers of the 20th century, Judy Garland (playing Hannah Brown).
There is absolutely nothing not to like about Easter Parade. It is lovely kaleidoscope of costume, music, and dance, with Fred Astaire and Judy Garland. What more could you ask for in a movie?
This is one of my all-time favorite Fred Astaire movies. Since I have seen so few Judy Garland movies I'd have to say that I like Easter Parade the best...and yes I do love The Wizard Of Oz....
Fred is still at the top of dancing abilities and Judy has matured into a lovely woman in this film.
Funny and romantic this is a great family movie for all ages. Even my teenage brother liked it the first time we saw it, he even went to the library to watch a screening of it with me a few years ago.
If you enjoy holiday movies or even just the old-time musicals I would definitely suggest finding a copy of this classic gem. Grab some jellybeans and enjoy!
