Showtime Sunday: Garland and Astaire perform “In Your Easter Bonnet” from “Easter Parade”
It’s Easter Sunday so this is a no-brainer, right?
That, of course, is the 1948 American musical film starring Judy Garland and Fred Astaire featuring music by Irving Berlin.
On the day before Easter in 1911, Don Hewes (Astaire) is crushed when his dancing partner (and object of affection) Nadine Hale (Ann Miller) refuses to start a new contract with him. To prove Nadine’s not important to him, Don acquires innocent new protegee Hannah Brown (Garland), vowing to make her a star in time for next year’s Easter parade.
It was the highest-grossing musical that year and always nice to revisit anytime.
Enjoy – and happy Easter!
