Easter Parade Reviews

Creative Loafing

The most famous act finds Garland and Astaire dressed as bums for "A Couple of Swells," but there's also ... the pair tackling the title tune and -- my favorite -- Astaire showing off his incomparable tap-dancing prowess in "Steppin' Out with My Baby."

Charming love story plus great song and dance.

Pretty, deft, and tuneful but, given the top-rate talent involved, not particularly inspired.

Easter Parade is a musical with old and new Irving Berlin tunes and standout dance numbers.

Easter Parade may not strike the perfect balance between song-dance interludes and story, but it's an appealing show just the same.

While not one of the best musicals made by MGM or Arthur Freed, it's light, whimsical, entertaining, and the only opportunity to see Fred Astaire and Judy Garland together.

It is Easter Paradewith Fred Astaire that's the prime example of what made Frances Gumm our Judy Garland.

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.

A decent MGM musical that is winsome only in its many Irving Berlin numbers.

Classic MGM musical. A little arch, but good.

The slight plot is laced with generous dollops of vintage Irving Berlin songs, several of them staged with dazzling ingenuity.

The Irving Berlin score is bright, and Walters is one director who knows when to leave Astaire to his own devices.

The routines are less inventive than one might expect and the songs fail to stay in the heart.
