“MEET ME IN ST. LOUIS” is a classic MGM romantic musical comedy that focuses on four sisters (one of whom is the nonpareil Judy Garland) on the cusp of the 1904 St. Louis World’s Fair. The film spotlights the sisters’ education in the ways of the world, which includes, but isn’t limited to, learning about life and love, courtesy of the prototypical boy next door. In the end, love — accompanied by song, dance and period costumes, all in glorious Technicolor — conquers all. MEET ME IN ST. LOUIS received 4 Academy Award nominations, for Adapted Screenplay, Color Cinematography, Best Song (“The Trolley Song”) and Best Original Musical Score. Margaret O’Brien received a special Oscar for
Best Juvenile Performance of the Year; one of only ten such Oscars ever given by the Academy!
Release date: November 28, 1944 (USA)
