Movie Music Monday: Drum Crazy
The story takes place in the days of Vaudeville. Don (Fred Astaire) and Nadine (Ann Miller) are a famous dancing duo who specialize in elegant ballroom dancing. When Nadine leaves Don to pursue a solo career, Don enlists Hannah (Judy Garland), a chorus girl, to take Nadine's place. Hilarity ensues.
The movie features great songs by Irving Berling, including Easter Parade, Shaking the Blues Away,and Stepping Out with My Baby
Trivia: Gene Kelly was set to play the part of Don, but he twisted his ankle and Astaire took his place.
