Wow--this is a great documentary about a great movie. How fitting.
The two-disk DVD set for "Meet Me In St. Louis" is wonderful and well worth getting. That's because it is chock full of great extras--and the best of which is this documentary. Considering that "Meet Me In St. Louis" was one of the best films of the 1940s, it seems only fitting that Turner Entertainment make such a high quality documentary concerning its creation. And, considering that the original film had been made so many years before, it's amazing that they were able to assemble so many of the original actors for this new film. In addition to these recent interviews, photos and film clips are used to make this film which was lovingly narrated by Roddy McDowell. If you are a fan of the original movie, then it's imperative you see this documentary.
By the way, my favorite part of the film was when the song writer sang his original version of "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas". The words, he admitted, were very maudlin and just awful and unintentionally funny!
