Nice to see that by deciding to take the roll seriously, Judy Garland does come off as being very adult. A bit of a pacing issue as was the style of the day but, it's a visually beautiful period movie with a very rare and lengthy scene of what it was like to celebrate Halloween before what we know as "trick or treat" existed--someone did their research. It was interesting to hear the famous songs in context. Overall an enjoyable and entertaining movie despite the fact that they refer to themselves as "poor" several times (are you kidding me?!) and that there is a borderline annoying character--sorry Tootie!
