9 Classic Hollywood "Spring" Movies to Check Off Your List this Month

Next week marks the official beginning of Spring, so I'm beginning a movie marathon all things flowers and bunnies related. I confess, many of the films below are completely new to me, so I am excited to discover them. Won't you join me on a little garden stroll through the Golden Age of Cinema? 

I haven't seen Easter Parade yet, but the premise is that a nightclub performer (Fred Astaire) hires an inexperienced chorus girl (Judy Garland) to prove to his former partner that he can make anybody a star. It sounds like a vintage musical version of She's All That

What is more fitting for springtime than strolling through a chalkboard art garden on a "Jolly Holiday" with our favorite nanny?

Not very many people can get away with having an imaginary friend and not be creepy, but I have a feeling Jimmy Stewart can. Wait... or is the bunny imaginary? Guess I will have to watch it to find out.

MAYTIME

Naughty Marietta is one of my all-time favorite classic films, so I am excited to see this operetta from the magnificent Nelson Eddy and Jeanette MacDonald team!

Ok, technically this one could go for any season with its year-round musical frolics, but the song I always remember chants "Spring, spring, spring!!!" so I am including it here.

I haven't seen it yet but I am told it is very "Spring" appropriate, perhaps because... well... bunnies?

APRIL IN PARIS

Anything with Doris Day in it is a winner with me.

SPRINGTIME IN THE ROCKIES

Haven't seen it, but the tagline reads: "It's mile-high fun when those frollicking romancers go romping -- under the mountain moon! Even the Rockies rock with rhythm and laughter!"

It Happens Every Spring

Another I haven't seen, but the premise is basically this: what can a mad-scientist to with his new discovery of wood-repellant baseballs?
