Starring the elegant Fred Astaire ("The Gay Divorcee," "Funny Face," "Top Hat," "The Towering Inferno") as a rising Broadway star who tries to break away from former dance partner Ann Miller ("Kiss Me Kate") so he can be with newcomer Judy Garland ("The Wizard of Oz," "A Star is Born," "Meet Me in St. Louis"). Produced by Oscar-winner Arthur Freed ("Gigi," "An American in Paris"). Featuring a spectacle of song, dance, and costume. With the Rat Pack's Peter Lawford ("A Royal Wedding," "Little Women").

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Easter Parade may not strike the perfect balance between song-dance interludes and story, but it's an appealing show just the same.
Fresh: Easter Parade is a musical with old and new Irving Berlin tunes and standout dance numbers.
Fresh: A fantastic movie, featuring two of the finest motion picture performers ever, Astaire and Judy Garland, in their only cinematic pairing. Ann Miller also stars in there, too, to spice things up even more.
Fresh: The Irving Berlin score is bright, and Walters is one director who knows when to leave Astaire to his own devices.
Fun for all ages!
All I can say about this movie is that it is just wonderful. The songs are great and so are the performances. This is a perfect movie for all ages and any occasion and perfect for those who appreciate Hollywood's Golden Era. It really is the happiest musical ever made!
Easter Parade is a great movie. It's well written with a fun storyline and wonderful music. I recommend to anyone in love with the oldies!!
I am 12 years old and love hit musicals. I got this movie for Christmas and love it! Did you know, that Gene Kelly was going to play Don, but he twisted his ankle and asked Fred Astair to do it!
