One of MGM’s most beloved and successful musicals, Meet Me in St. Louis stars the legendary Judy Garland in a timeless tale of family, romance and song set at the turn of the century. St. Louis, 1903. The well-off Smith family has four headstrong daughters, including the teenage Esther (Garland, in one of her most iconic performances), who is just discovering love with John, the boy-next-door, and anticipating the upcoming 1904 World’s Fair. The family is stunned when Mr. Smith announces that he has been transferred to a new job in New York City, which leaves the family with just one short year to enjoy life in their hometown. Director Vincent Minnelli expertly conveys the warmth and emotion of this endearing family saga through a terrific blend of music, love and humor, surrounded by the splendor of MGM’s top-notch production values. A box-office smash that was nominated for four Academy Awards, Meet Me in St. Louis features a bounty of great musical numbers, including two of Garland’s signature tunes – the Oscar-nominated “The Trolley Song” and the timeless holiday classic, “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.” (Dir. by Vincent Minnelli, 1944, USA, 113 mins., Not Rated)
