9 years ago today my little tiger was born. Tender hearted from the moment he came, tearing up to the sounds of music, jubilant and joyful to see the Easter Parade on Lawrence Welk, eager to move his feet, climb, jump, shout and crash. With the same glimmer in his eye and rose bud pout as my true Love. And a deep throaty chuckle to his laugh. My hearts desire realized, I am so lucky to be the mama. Happy Birthday Tannerman Tatanka RabbitFoot.

Finale from the film 'Easter Parade' starring Judy Garland and Fred Astaire
Holiday Inn (1942) Trivia For the "drunk" dance, Fred Astaire had two drinks of bourbon before the first take and one before each succeeding take. The seventh (last) take was used in the film. When Irving Berlin won an Oscar for his song "White Christmas" from this movie, he became the first artist to present himself with an Academy Award. The set of the Holiday Inn (1942) was reused by Paramount 12 years later for the musical White Christmas (1954), also starring Bing Crosby and again with songs composed by Irving Berlin. Kemmons Wilson, who founded the "Holiday Inn" motel chain in 1952, named them after this movie. The firecracker dance sequence required 3 days of rehearsal and took two days to film. Fred Astaire's shoes for the dance were auctioned off for $116,000 worth of war bonds. The proceeds from the New York City premiere went to the Navy Relief Society. Irving Berlin got the idea for the film after writing the song "Easter Parade" for his 1933 show "As Thousands Cheer", and planned to write a . ...

Father's Day brings back memories of my Dad - and backyard barbecues, early morning trips to Jones Beach, outings to Palisades or Playland, days spent at the Worlds Fair. He thought nothing of getting us all into the car for a trip to the museum, or a broadway show, the Easter Parade, Bear Mountain. He loved a home cooked meal, but was always happy to take us all to Manero's, Mama Leone's, the Pilgrim's Table, the automat, Mitchell's, or Daddy Michael's for ice cream. We were never home sick that he wouldn't come home with some little gift - coloring book and crayons, comic magazines, paper dolls. His lap was the best one to sit on when the Wicked Witch arrived in The Wizard of Oz. He was there for every important event and every crisis. No Dad was ever so happy to be gifted with new socks, ties, or a soap on a rope! Dad was the best Grandpa that any grandchildren ever had. Trips to visit Santa, breakfasts with the Easter Bunny, a trip to the Cabbage Patch store, shopping sprees, playtime at the p ...

Amazing Tap: how about Anne Miller dancing with a broken back in Easter Parade
From The American Minute by Bill Federer The son of a rabbi, he was born MAY 11, 1888. At 4-years-old, he immigrated with his family from Russia to New York. Falling in love with America, he served as a U.S. infantry sergeant in World War I. He later wrote some of the nation's most popular songs, including: "I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas"; "Remember"; "Always"; "Alexander's Ragtime Band"; "There's No Business like Show Business"; and "Easter Parade." Who was he? Irving Berlin. Irving Berlin wrote the Broadway musical, "This is the Army," which was made into a 1943 film starring Ronald Reagan. President Harry S. Truman awarded Berlin the Army's Medal of Merit in 1945 for: "Extraordinary service as creator and producer of the musical revue, This Is the Army." Irving Berlin wrote the patriotic hymn "God Bless America" in 1917. It was introduced to the public in 1938 when Kate Smith sang it on an Armistice Day radio broadcast. Berlin gave all the royalties from the song, over $100,000, to the Boy Scouts . ...
On this day in 1948: Judy appeared on the NBC Radio show "The Chesterfield Supper Club" singing three songs to promote the upcoming release of "Easter Parade": "I Wish I Were In Michigan" "A Fella With An Umbrella" (with Perry Como) and "Easter Parade" (with Fred Astaire). Here is a link to listen to, and download, "I Wish I Were In Michigan" from this broadcast. That's Irving Berlin himself prompting Judy at the beginning of the recording. Note: The sound quality isn't perfect, but that's what happens with some of these old radio recordings!
The radio was playing 'Easter Parade' and I thought, but this is a Jewish genius on a par with the Ten Commandments. God gave Moses the Ten Commandments and then He gave to Irving Berlin 'Easter Parade' and 'White Christmas.' The two holidays that celebrate the divinity of Christ -- the divinity that's the very heart of the Jewish rejection of Christianity -- and what does Irving Berlin brilliantly do? He de-Christs them both! Easter he turns into a fashion show and Christmas into a holiday about snow. Gone is the gore and the murder of Christ -- down with the crucifix and up with the bonnet! He turns their religion into schlock. But nicely! Nicely! So nicely the goyim don't even know what hit 'em. They love it. Everybody loves it.   [a little later]   I took more pride in 'Easter Parade' than in the victory of the Six Days War, found more security in 'White Christmas' than in the Israeli nuclear reactor.   ~Philip Roth, OPERATION SHYLOCK
Judy. Fred. Easter Parade. Hope you all had a good one!
Can I just watch Easter Parade and Meet Me In St Louis .? Maybe a little Gone With the Wind.? :(
Here's a question I've never been able to find the answer to. In "Judy Garland: An Intimate Portrait," there's a quotation of an anecdote by Judy about the script for "Easter Parade." She says the original ending of the film was a "bummer" and she suggested to the executives at MGM a small script change that, in her opinion would rescue the finale of the picture. The execs resisted, but Irving Berlin said, "That little girl happens to be right, you know" and threatened to walk off the picture unless Judy's suggestion was adopted. So my question is: what was the "bummer" ending? The finale of "Easter Parade" (which apparently was Judy's invention) seems so organic and flawless that it's hard to imagine it any other way.
With songs by Irving Berlin & scored by Johnny Green, Easter Parade was bound to have some great numbers:

Jules Munshin tosses his signature salad for Judy Garland and Peter Lawford in Irving Berlin's 1948 MGM classic Easter Parade.
Wow! Ann Miller's dance solo in Easter Parade! What a film! Judy Garland, Fred Astaire and Ann Miller! What poor substitutes we have today.
Curled up in my grandmother's house watching Irving Berlin's 1948 musical Easter Parade starring Judy Garland & Fred Astaire with my Poppy.
I can't be the only one who thinks Judy Garland's red hat in Easter Parade makes her look like she lost her organ grinder.
Today I went to the Easter parade and gave the Easter Bunny the Finger !
We're watching "Easter Parade" (1948) starring Fred Astaire and Judy Garland. Cheesy? Maybe. *** Most definitely. But a delight indeed. Especially with its 17-song Oscar winning score by Irving Berlin.
Triple feature Sunday recovering from bronchitis: Empire of the Sun (introducing Batman, Christian Bale, age 12) (1987), Nicholson in The Two Jakes (sequel to Chinatown, 1974, Nicholson and Keitel), and now Irving Berlin's Easter Parade (Judy Garland, Fred Astaire, 1948). Quite a variety, all wonderful cinema.
Having a relaxing evening watching Fred Astaire and Judy Garland in Easter Parade. I love those Irving Berlin songs.
All right, that was fun. I did what I do for the *** Easter Parade: Throw too many beads too quickly so that we ran out too early; also, snarl at the parade watchers to put down their cameras for two *** minutes, advise them on how to dress better, call out the ones who appear inert to try harder, and scare the little kids. This year I added singing "Copacabana" and "Piano Man" at the top of my cracked lungs. Regina Adams and Tru Demille and Kelli Nini Allen are still out for the post-Parade party, but I came home early. Mom didn't make it after all, and I was worried. Five blocks from home, rolling her to see the parade, I gave up and turned the wheelchair back around. She was miserable and uncomfortable and complaining pretty near non-stop. Got to face facts: I might want to get her out of the house more often but, unless there's a car involved, I may as well forget it. She gets bored (then lonely, then angry) a lot, but she also doesn't want to - sometimes can't - go to the effort involved in not bein ...

It's time for Larry's useless trivia! Irving Berlin would write new songs, along with his classic songs, and recycle them. Bring his songs and screenplay to Fox or Paramount and Be paid lots of money for it and earned oscar nominations. However in 1947, Berlin took his classic songs with new songs he had written to Fox. The executives turned him down due to what he wanted to be paid. He then went to MGM and Louie B Mayer paid him what he wanted, the end result was 1948's Easter Parade.
