Meet Me in St. Louis

Meet Me in St. Louis

Directed by Vincente Minnelli • 1944 • United States
Starring Judy Garland, Margaret O’Brien, Mary Astor

This glowingly nostalgic slice of turn-of-the-century Americana follows the daughters of the Smith family of St. Louis—including Esther (Judy Garland), Rose (Lucille Bremer), and Tootie (Margaret O’Brien)—over the course of one year as they experience love, celebrate the holidays, deal with the fallout of their father’s decision to move the family to New York, and eagerly anticipate the coming 1904 World’s Fair. Vincente Minnelli’s gorgeous period production design and the indelible musical set pieces—including Garland’s renditions of the rousing “The Trolley Song” and the achingly bittersweet “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas”—have made this beloved classic a perennial holiday favorite.
