Judy Garland stars in this charming MGM musical as Esther Smith, whose father comes home and announces he is going to uproot his whole family to New York on the very eve of the 1903 St. Louis World's Fair. Brilliantly directed by Vincente Minnelli, who fell in love with Judy during the filming and married her soon after, this extravaganza was produced by the famous Arthur Freed. Irving Brecher and Fred F. Finklehoffe wrote the screen play and Freed hired composers Hugh Martin and Ralph Blaine to write the new songs including the classics 'Trolley Song' and 'Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas'. Child star Margaret O'Brien collected a special Oscar in 1944 as the precocious Tootie.
