Mr. Monotony and Get Happy


Judy Garland’s dance number for Mr. Monotony, a song written for her character in Easter Parade (1948) by Irving Berlin, was cut from the film because it was deemed too risque and jazzy for a film set in 1910. The half-tuxedo outfit Garland wears in this number is very similar to the one she’d wear in the “Get Happy” number of Summer Stock a couple of years later. The cut number surfaced many years later in That’s Entertainment! III (1994).
