Interesting behind-the-scenes look at an American classic...
13 February 2008 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

This is an interesting glimpse at the ingredients that went into making the very special MGM musical, MEET ME IN ST. LOUIS, with tidbits about the filming from cast members like LUCILLE BREMER (who played the oldest sister) and MARGARET O'BRIEN (who played the youngest).

LIZA MINNELLI can be heard talking warmly of her father, VINCENT MINNELLI and his dedication to the project with his artistic background given full reign by the requirements of the turn-of-the-century storyline. HUGH MARTIN, the composer, recalls how the studio wanted him to include a song about a trolley for the scene where they go to the fairgrounds--and, of course, he came up with "The Trolley Song", a number that he said Judy captured in one take. Vincent Minnelli also remarked how he'd give Judy dozens of bits of business before filming a scene and she'd have no trouble remembering them all.

MARGARET O'BRIEN fondly recalls working with Garland (who treated her like her little sister) and LUCILLE BREMER also has only good things to say about working on the film with a few tidbits of information that she shares with fans of the film.

If you loved the movie, you'll enjoy this "Making of" featurette.
