Judy Garland sings "Silent Night" in this now-iconic M-G-M Christmas Trailer
23 December 2011 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

With Christmas almost here, I thought I'd rewatch this very brief musical short which I long ago favorited on YouTube. Starting with "O Come, All Ye Faithful" on chiming bells with a Christmas drawing on a clear background, we then segue on falling snow on a church before cutting to a 15-year-old Judy Garland in choir robe in front of a chorus of children similarly dressed inside the chapel as she sings the first verse of "Silent Night" with those kids cooing along. What a lovely voice she had and how touching this little promotional film was and how wonderful this is still available today. Really, there's nothing else to say except this M-G-M Christmas Trailer is highly recommended to both Garland and holiday fans.
