Easter Parade DVD

This is right on the borderline of what I've been considering a "luxury Friday gift item" -- I've arbitrarily been using $20.00 as the cutoff point, and as of today, this Easter Parade DVD is $19.99 on Amazon. But the list price is higher, which means if you need to get it at the last minute in a store instead of ordering it online, you might end up paying closer to the $26.99 list price for this classic movie.

If you're not familiar with the story, Easter Parade stars Fred Astaire and Judy Garland; he's an established entertainer who's just been jilted by his partner, and he vows that he can turn any young woman who comes along into a "star" by the next year's "Easter parade", when the women stroll up and down the street, parading their Easter finery on the arms of their escorts. It's silly and cliched and charming, and would make an out-of-the-ordinary Easter basket gift for anyone into old movies.

What: Easter Parade (Special Edition)
Where: Amazon, Best Buy, Target, etc.
How much (as of today's post): $19.99 (plus shipping)
