Good Movie
13 May 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I love this movie. After seeing it on the Disney Channel back in the eighties I wished I had taped. I feel that Jeanne Crain and Linda Darnel are great rivals over Cornel Wilde. I know that people have said that it is a poor remake of Meet me in St. Louis. But feel it has it own merit. I hope that someday they put it out on dvd so everyone can enjoy it.

Jeanne Crain passed away recently and I had hoped that they would show it in tribute. But they didn't and I felt kinda of cheated. The timelessnes of the movie would have been a great tribute to her and all the cast
