Product Details


Product Description

Amazon.ca

One of the finest American musicals, this 1944 film by Vincente Minnelli is an intentionally self-contained story set in 1903, in which a happy St Louis family is shaken to their roots by the prospect of moving to New York, where the father has a better job pending. Judy Garland heads the cast of Meet Me in St Louis in what amounts to a splendid, end-of-an-era story that nicely rhymes with the onset of the 20th century. The film is extraordinarily alive, the characters strong, and the musical numbers are so splendidly part of the storytelling that you don't feel the film has stopped for an interlude. --Tom Keogh

Product Description

St. Louis 1903. The well-off Smith family has four beautiful daughters, including Esther and little Tootie. 17-year old Esther has fallen in love with the boy next door who has just moved in, John. He however, barely notices her at first. The family is shocked when Mr. Smith reveals that he has been transfered to a nice position in New York, which means that the family has to leave St. Louis and the St. Louis Fair.

5.0 out of 5 stars Boy Next Door Meets The Girl Next Door April 21 2004
Format:DVD
What can't I say about this movie? Or more precisely, what can I not say about this movie. I remember watching this on television when I was a little girl years ago. I was so happy when I saw it on DVD at my local Barns and Nobles.
When I first got it I didn't even really noticed the two disc special However, when I did I was very happy about it.
There is so much on this two disc set. That I haven't been able to watch it all. This is a beautiful 60th anniversary restored version.
If like me you remember the some what bad colored version at the time on tv. Because they just really hadn't gotten around to restoring classic films.
It has been digitally transferred from the restored picture and as well as audio elements.
Even Judy's daughter Liza Minneli gives a rather sweet introduction about the movie and her parents.
This is an A+ movie and I recommend it to any body who still loves an old fashioned movie. That doesn't have all of the modern day technology thrown in, ever since they made Matrix, and so forth.
In truth this is just a simple story about a family that lives in ST. Louis. However, there is just something so much more touching about the story then that.
With the cast that the movie has that just makes the story more special and enormous. It really just tacks a life on it's own. I've only real allowed my self a sneak peak at the commentary, but that looks wonderful as well.
You get so much extra footage and such.
You even get the 1966 Meet Me In ST. Louis TV Series Pilot Episode and a very fun, and colorful Vincent Minnelli trailer gallery.
There is just so much joy that you get from this movie. The story is wonderful and the cast all really just seam to have a connection with each other during the time.

Have watched this movie many times over the years and it never gets old. Includes different seasons of the year in the life of the family. Of course Judy Garland is beyond any other vocalist.

5.0 out of 5 stars Judy at her best... Dec 4 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Vince Minnelli directs his wife (Garland) and cast in a great costumed and period piece of pure Americana....the St. Louis World's Fair. Little Margaret O'Brien steals the show.

5.0 out of 5 stars An American Classic In A Memorable DVD Package April 27 2004
Format:DVD
Many critics consider MEET ME IN ST. LOUIS the single finest Hollywood musical of the 20th Century. Produced by Arthur Freed, directed by Vincent Minnelli, and sporting a flawless ensemble cast led by Judy Garland, the film was immediately hailed when it debuted in 1944--and time has only added luster to its name. Now, after several home market incarnations, it at last receives the edition it deserves on DVD.
Given its stature, it is ironic that both MGM and Judy Garland originally fought the project. Based on a collection of autobiographical stories by Sally Benson, the script is little more than a series of domestic adventures in the lives of the Smith family of 1903 St. Louis. But it became a thing of wonder: a careful balance of sly but gentle humor, a collection of memorable performances, an understated score shorn of the usual movie-musical affectations, and at the center of it all Judy Garland, one of Hollywood's most memorable talents.
The transfer is excellent, capturing every nuance of the film's meticulously and beautifully designed sets in full Technicolor; the sound elements, remastered in Dolby 5.1, are equally fine and Garland's unique vocal skills are undimmed by time. All in all, it seems safe to say that not even the original 1944 theatrical release could surpass the quality of picture and sound offered here.
Although the bonus package would have better without the awful pilot for a failed television series based on the film, by and large it offers a superior collection. Previously available on VHS, the Roddy McDowell-narrated "making of" documentary is worth revisiting, as is the TCM-produced "Becoming Attractions.
