GlamAmor-ous Holiday Moments--Judy Garland in MEET ME IN ST. LOUIS

Though Vincent Minnelli's Meet Me in St. Louis was set at the turn of the century, there was much in the film that translated to its 1944 audience. As World War II continued to rage on, the movie brought tremendous comfort by showing an idealized America and a family sticking together through a lengthy period of love and loss.  Esther (Judy Garland) singing "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" to her troubled younger sister was an especially poignant moment in the movie and it still is today.  Costumes supervised by Irene.
