    Easter Parade [#1089] A delightful musical in which Don Hewes (Fred Astaire) tries to forget his former dance partner Nadine Hale (Ann Miller) by teaming up randomly with the next dancer he meets, who turns out to be Hannah Brown (Judy Garland). Eventually the new dance team becomes so successful, they're invited to join the Ziegfeld Follies, where Nadine has also landed a spot. Should Hewes accept the offer? Should he let Hannah know he's fallen in love with her, or keep their partnership strictly business?

    The film won an Oscar for musical scoring (Roger Edens and Johnny Green). Astaire had thought to retire in 1946, but came out of retirement for this film, replacing Gene Kelly when he broke his ankle. Garland replaced Cyd Charisse in this film when Charisse became pregnant. Garland's health prevented her from teaming with Astaire again in the 1949 follow-up, The Barkleys of Broadway, in which she was, in turn, replaced by Ginger Rogers. duration 1:43:33   STEREO TVPG

    Royal Wedding (1951) Tom and Ellen Bowen, a brother and sister dance team (Fred Astaire and Jane Powell), travel to London to perform at the same time Queen Elizabeth II is getting married.

Arriving in London, Tom holds auditions, and meets the lovely Anne Ashmond (Sarah Churchill). The love affairs of both siblings lead to indecision and angst, which Tom works out by dancing on the walls and ceiling. The story was loosely based on the real life partnership of Fred Astaire and his sister Adele, including their ship voyage to London in 1923. Burton Lane's and Alan Jay Lerner's song, "Too Late Now," was nominated for an Oscar (losing out to "In the Cool, Cool, Cool of the Evening" by Hoagy Carmichael and Johnny Mercer). duration 1:32:48   TVG
