The cover on this DVD says this isthe "Two-Disc Special Edition". It'slike getting two movies in one! Iwon't get into the plot, as theformal reviews here cover that. I dobelieve this is THE movie to see forviewing a radiant Judy Garland anddarling Margaret O'Brien. This is arestored version and today's hi-techhas done the picture a great service.Colors are wonderful, the transferis clean. The movie also serves as away to appreciate musicals whenmusicals are not your forté. It'san upbeat picture, great escape andfine showcase of Hollywood costuming.The bonus features on the 2nd discare an entirely different mode. Youcan watch Judy Garland "changing" through trailers of her many movies.You also learn a bit about MargaretO'Brien, Mickey Rooney, the formerHollywood studio movie system, andother tidbits about the starsAmerica loved. The various trailersare NOT restored, and it's easy tosee how original film has deteriorated and makes you mostappreciative of the restoration jobachieved for Meet Me In St.Louis.This DVD edition is highly recommended for those interested inan alternative to The Wizard of Ozwhen an example of Judy Garland'smovie work is desired.

Here is a classic film that should be mandatory viewing for film buffs and family film enthusiasts. After 60 years and counting, it retains its artistic beauty, and glowing performance by Judy Garland...it introduces the classic Trolley Song and Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas. Added to this enjoyment is a 'time capsule' view of a bygone era of American life. It is timeless, and to be cherished.

Meet Me in St. Louis is one of Judy Garland's best films. The story travels a year from fall to summer in the Victorian era as St. Louis prepares for the World's Fair. The viewer is drawn into the life of the Smith family over the course of that year as the family celebrates Halloween, Christmas and family situations between father, mother and daughters. The movie is funny, entertaining but best of all has Judy. I heard once that Margaret O'Brien attempted to steal the scene several times in this movie. Not sure if it is true, but I can see it, Judy keeps up with her and stays in character. Judy Garland was a phenomenal actress. There was just something about her performances. She was comfortable behind the camera, a great comic, yet you could see her vulnerable side. When she sang, she became the song. That's what made all her movies great. There is no one like Judy.

Great holiday and family scenes. Wonderful snapshot of life in a more innocent time. Wonderful Christmas ball with dance cards - why don't we celebrate like this anymore? Love the house.

this was another film i had watched in class and it was not bad, some of the songs were familar though i never knew where i had heard it from and now i know from this film. the story's about a family who ponders a move to a place new to them and leaving their beloved town that they grew up in and are starting to find love and etc.
