“A warmly human entertainment which has captured a nostalgic charm rarely, if ever, equaled on screen”
—The Hollywood Reporter
Four seasons in the life of The Smiths pass in day-to-day joy and tribulation—from summer 1903 up to the opening of the 1904 World’s Fair. But teen romances, dead dolls, and a dream existence (in a Minnelli-crafted, turn of the century home) are threatened when Mr. Smith announces the family’s imminent move from St. Louis to New York City.
The timeless Hugh Martin/Ralph Blane score includes “The Trolley Song,” “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas,” and “The Boy Next Door.” A justly celebrated cast features the amazing Margaret O’Brien, Mary Astor, Tom Drake, Marjorie Main, Leon Ames, Lucille Bremer, Harry Davenport, Joan Carroll, and June Lockhart.
