Ann Miller: Easter Parade Promotional Photo
I remember the first time I saw Easter Parade – I had only seen Ann Miller in “likable” roles and was completely taken off guard by her being so nasty! I quickly realized, however, that she was delicious in the role and enjoyed every second of her and the film. I always get a kick out of watching a star when they’re given a chance to branch out from their usual screen personas. Sometimes the star makes the most of it (like Ann Miller in Easter Parade) and other times they fall smack on their face.
If you’ve never seen Easter Parade (1948), I could not recommend it more. Judy Garland, Fred Astaire, Ann Miller, and Peter Lawford are wonderful in this beautiful musical. It’s a lot of fun and visually gorgeous.
You can find Easter Parade (link to the dvd) on Amazon.
