IN YOUR EASTER BONNET…..

ep4

Tomorrow is officially Easter Sunday, but today we celebrate the 1948 MGM film, Easter Parade.

The movie starred Judy Garland, Fred Astaire, Ann Miller, Peter Lawford and Jules Munshin. Gene Kelly was originally cast in the Astaire role, but broke his ankle in a freak accident before filming commenced.

The film’s ‘book’ is a hoary tale about a vaudeville song and dance team becoming romantically involved. Don’t pay any attention to it. Just enjoy the lush, Technicolor musical numbers with Garland, Astaire and Miller at their peak.

I can’t say I watch it every Easter—I view this movie several times a year. It’s a heaping helping of corny entertainment, no matter what season!

Following are a selection of rare EP stills I’ve pulled out of the vault. Enjoy!
