Meet me in St Louis
Finally saw this film yesterday. I LOVE the Wizard of Oz (if you hadn't noticed) but I am not a very big Judy Garland fan, so I was keen to see Meet in St Louis as it is meant to be Judy Garland's other great role.
I enjoyed the film, I loved the songs. I had heard the 'Trolley song' before but never knew where it came from! 'Have yourself a Merry Little Christmas' is beautiful as well, I've always liked that song.
The quirky characters and close family relationship was fun to watch and was acted well. The 2 youngest sisters were hilarious, so mischeivious!
Judy Garland is pretty awesome too, her character (Esther) is silly in a girlish way about boys and marriage, but she is fun and clever and would do anything for her family.
The costumes, I thought for the most part they were hideous! But I am not a huge fan of Victorian fashion, and a lot of the colours they used were probably not accurate, just fun for a musical.
I thought the best costumes were for the Christmas ball scene.
I am sure you have all already seen it, but if not it is worth watching for the: cute storyline, great songs, Agnes and Tootie and the scene around the dinner table.
