Easter is just around the corner and I’m reminded of this great montage scene from the 1948 MGM picture “Easter Parade“. Music by Irving Berlin starring Fred Astaire, Judy Garland and Ann Miller. This film represents the height of the Hollywood musical and one of the best of its time. This short segment depicts the height of fashion looking back from 1948. The song, “The Girl On The Magazine Cover”, features an ingenious stage act, in which women appear against backdrops that look like the covers of magazines.
High fashion, Hollywood glamour, wonderful music – take a look.
