Movie review: Meet me in St. Louis

photo: Wikipedia

A sweet old musical starring Judy Garland that sees the Smith family through the year before the 1904 World's Fair in St. Louis.

A family of seven sings their way through summer romance, Halloween highjinks, the threat of a job transfer, A Merry Little Christmas and a glorious spring. The trolley clangs, Margaret O'Brien is adorable as a ghoulish little girl, and Judy falls in love with the boy next door.

It's rather pleasant, and might make a nice Christmas or Easter tradition.
