“Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas”

Since it’s a nostalgic bittersweet, family-oriented musical comedy set in the turn of the century midwest starring Judy Garland, some of you might assume that “Meet Me in St. Louis” is kind of a drippy, saccharine movie. Trust me, it’s sweet but anything but drippy and established Vincente Minelli as one of the greatest of Hollywood directors. If your cable system has TCM, you can see for yourself; it’s showing at 10:00 pst/1:00 a.m. est tonight.

In the meantime, here’s big sister Judy Garland trying to console Margaret O’Brien with one of the loveliest pop Christmas songs ever written. This always gets to me.
