Judy Garland gives an unforgettable performance in this classic MGM musical.

One of the most joyful and exuberant of the classic MGM musicals, this period family story set at the time of the 1904 World's Fair, was shot in glorious technicolor as a wonderful tonic to the grim background of World War 2 reality.

Judy Garland is at her best as literally the girl next door, whilst also giving some of her greatest screen singing performances including the Trolley Song and Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas. Directed with verve and style by Vincente Minnelli who would soon become Garland's real life husband.
