Meet Me in St. Louis (1944): A Five-Minute Review
I can't believe I've never seen Meet Me in St. Louis until now. Even though Judy Garland's a little tough on the eyes in this one (or should I say eyebrows), it's such a fun movie. The adventures of a family in with four daughters and a son in 1904 St. Louis is full of fun moments and a lot of old-fashioned music. Margaret O'Brien steals the show with her eccentric performance as the youngest daughter. I loved the color, the sense of humor, the time period, the genuine family moments, and of course, the music. Ever since I saw the movie, every once in a while, I find the title song stuck in my head. It's definitely a new favorite.
