"Easter Parade" _ Easter Parade
I've been neglecting Planet Kelsey of late, due largely in part to having the flu a couple weeks back (it's amazing how that can knock you out and keep you catching up for days on end!) and now moving to a new apartment (more on that later I'm sure). But there's always time for some pre-holiday musical treats, so today I'm bringing you "Easter Parade" from the 1948 classic of the same name.
The movie stars Judy Garland and Fred Astaire — so the top singer and the top dancer in the Golden Age of Hollywood, really. It's wonderful to watch them together, each bringing their A game. Fun fact: Fred actually came out of retirement for the chance to be in a movie with Judy. I recently watched a PBS documentary about Judy Garland, and one talking head said that it's amazing how, even when Judy is dancing with Fred, she's the one you're watching. Now that's some star power, and it's so true. So here — have some Judy!
