Meet Me in St. Louis
Dir. Vincente Minnelli. 1944, 113 mins. Restored 35mm print. With Judy Garland, Margaret O’Brien. In this bittersweet turn-of-the-century musical, a family contends with life, love, and an impending move from St. Louis to New York City. In his first color film, Vincente Minnelli deftly organizes the Technicolor palette around Judy Garland, moving seamlessly between story and song—and what songs they are, including “The Trolley Song,” “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas,” and “The Boy Next Door.”
