Warner Bros. Home Video will bring the classic musical Easter Parade to Blu-ray this February. The film was directed by Charles Walters and stars Judy Garland, Fred Astaire, Peter Lawford, and Ann Miller. Easter Parade will hit Blu-ray on February 19, 2013.
The film tells the story of Don Hewes (Astaire). On the day before Easter in 1911, Hewes is crushed when his dancing partner (and object of affection) Nadine Hale (Miller) refuses to start a new contract with him. To prove Nadine’s not important to him, Don acquires innocent new protegee Hannah Brown (Garland), vowing to make her a star in time for next year’s Easter parade.
Easter Parade was released in July 1948 and grossed over $6 million at the box office. The film won the 1949 Academy Award for Best Music.
Here is the theatrical trailer for Easter Parade.
