For this Movie Musical Challenge I’ve made a list of 15 musicals that I haven’t yet seen and probably ought to have. The challenge is throughout the year and once watched I’ll put my thoughts up on the blog. Today is the turn of Meet Me In St Louis.
So the tenth movie for the challenge is Meet Me In St Louis (1944), starring Judy Garland.
Some of my favourite songs were “The Trolley Song”, “The Boy Next Door”, and “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas”, but every song was brilliant as each one made me want to hum along and repeat again and again.
There is a quaint and nostalgic look at a time of innocence and optimism when something such as the World Fair coming to your town is the most exciting thing to happen.
Set in four acts from the summer of 1903 and spring of 1904, we follow the Smith sisters as they go through rites of passage and changes as each comes to their own.
This was a gorgeous, quintessential film and is definitely in my top three musicals of the year.
