This is a selfish pick. I just love love love this movie. And it has a nice big Halloween section, so that’s fun. On the less selfish side, I think I can guarantee, this is a movie everyone on DCIB will enjoy. Great songs, amazing costumes, lots of family romance plot, just a total joy. Watch it with your family! Or remember when you saw it previously with your family! And come ready to discuss why Judy Garland is, or is not, the best character in the film.
Meet Me in St. Louis! If you haven’t watched it before, you absolutely MUST. Even if you don’t like Judy’s fabulous sparkling performance, you will appreciate the very silly family comedy and romance, even if you don’t like the very silly family comedy, you will enjoy the ridiculously flirty performance by Lucille Bremer, even if you don’t get a kick out of flirty boy mad Lucille Bremer, you will laugh at how dull the “Dream boy” next door is, and even if you don’t laugh at how dull the dream boy is, you are guaranteed at the very least to SWOON over the costumes!!!!
See you all Sunday to discuss! Oh, and get ready to pick your favorite sister! Cute Margaret O’Brien, darkly sadistic Joan Carroll, sweet hormonal Judy, or flirty sophisticated Lucille Bremer. And their brother, who is also there.
