A "Seasonal " film for the 6th Spot

Gentle Friends we are quickly coming to the end of my listing of "Christmas " Film's - and one I want to include is not solely a Christmas film but a "Year in the life" type film .........

..."Meet in St. Louis" - 1944 - starring Judy Garland, Margaret O'Brien, Mary Astor, Lucille Bremer and the ever wonderful Marjorie Main!!  Set in 1904 and against the backdrop of the coming "Worlds Fair" we follow the Smith family through the changing of the seasons - culminating with a grand section around the Christmas Season.  It is from this film that springs a super Christmas song - "Have yourself a Merry little Christmas"..... from the You Tube....

I have loved this film since I first saw it with my mom - many years ago - it was one of her favorite films so has a special place in my film archive - If you've not seen it, give it a look, I think you will enjoy it immensely!!

Thanks for stopping by, do stop again!!

Take care,
edgar

Love, love, love this film.

Also love reading your blog. You are so talented and have such wonderful stitching and thrifting ideas.

This movie, and also "In the Good Old Summertime" are "Judy Garland's Career" to me. As a child they were really the only ones I saw; I think perhaps my grandmother loved her, but thought her life too sad.

I've still never seen more than clips of Wizard of Oz.

...And, now I know what you think of MMISL!
