Meet Me in St Louis

[u]

United States 1944, 113 mins
Director: Vincente Minelli
Starring: Tom Drake, Judy Garland, Margaret O'Brien, Mary Astor, Leon Ames

Alonzo Smith (Ames), a banker and a father, is considering whether to uproot his family to New York, scuttling his daughter Esther’s (Garland) romance with boy-next-door John Truett (Drake) and causing similar emotional trauma for the rest of the household.

The songs are a heady combination of period tunes and newly minted numbers by Ralph Blane and Hugh Martin, the best of which are The Boy Next Door, The Trolley Song, and Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.

As a bonus, MEET ME IN ST LOUIS is lensed in rich Technicolor, shown to best advantage in the climactic scenes at the St Louis World’s Fair of 1904.
