Easter Parade -- Classic Irving Berlin musical about a vaudeville dancer (Fred Astaire) who loses one dancing partner (Ann Miller) and attempts to train a chorus girl (Judy Garland) to fill her shoes, until he realizes that her real talent is singing. Directed by Charles Walters, the story's lightweight but the stars are in top form and the songs and dance numbers are first-rate. Impeccable restored transfer with commentary by Astaire's daughter, Ava Astaire, and Garland expert John Fricke, Garland's cut number "Mr. Monotony" and the dailies for that number, and a radio version. A-I (nr)
