Plot Summary

Winner of an Oscar for its wonderful musical score, this Irving Berlin musical classic is sure to entertain the whole family. 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").

Fresh: Easter Parade is a musical with old and new Irving Berlin tunes and standout dance numbers. – Variety Staff, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

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. – Douglas Pratt, Hollywood Reporter, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: The Irving Berlin score is bright, and Walters is one director who knows when to leave Astaire to his own devices. – Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader, Jun 24, 2010

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!
