This was the first time I've watched another movie with Judy Garland besides 'the Wizard of Oz'. Everyone in this film was amazing! It was like watching a family go about their daily lives. I didn't know that the song 'have yourself a merry little Christmas' was written for this movie, or at least a scene; that was a cool thing to realize. All in all this movie is a great family film that will leave you laughing and grinning at the end!

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!
