Classic Film Friday: Easter Parade

On Friday, April 4 at 7:00 pm, the public is invited to the Marion Music Hall for its Classic Film Friday Presentation: Easter Parade. The event is co-sponsored by the Sippican Historical Society and the Marion Council on Aging, and is offered to the public, free of charge.            Easter Parade is a 1948 musical, starring Fred Astaire as a nightclub performer who hires a naive chorus girl (Judy Garland) to become his new dance partner to make his former partner (Ann Miller) jealous. Peter Lawford rounds out the cast. The film features music by Irving Berlin, including such favorites as “Steppin’ Out with My Baby,”” Shakin’ the Blues Away,” and the eponymous “Easter Parade.” Dubbed “the happiest musical every made,” Easter Parade was the highest-grossing musical of 1948, and earned an Oscar for Best Original Music Score the same year. Running time for Easter Parade is 107 minutes. For more information, contact the SHS at 508-748-1116.
