    Meet Me in St. Louis

    What's it About

    It's 1903, and the World's Fair is coming to St. Louis, causing great excitement for the Smiths and their four young daughters. Then, Mr. Smith is offered a position in New York City, causing some emotional complications. Daughter Esther (Garland) experiences some unfamiliar emotions of her own as she develops her first crush on the boy next door.

    Why we love it

    A lyrical, nostalgic Valentine to our country at the turn of the century, Director Minnelli brings his flair for color, costumes and setting to create a sumptuous visual treat. The film is extremely nice on the ears too, as young Judy (never more luminous) sings "The Trolley Song," "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" and more. A timeless treat for the whole family.
