Meet Me in St. Louis Movie Summary
Meet Me in St. Louis is a peek back in time at 20th Century Middle America. Based upon a memoir by Sally Benson, we follow the life of the Smith Family for a year. 1903 was a momentous year for the Smiths and for the city of St. Louis.
The eldest child, Lon, is about to leave for college. The two eldest daughters (Lucille Bremer and Judy Garland) fall in love and enjoy the St. Louis social life. The youngest Smith girls (Joan Carroll and Margaret O’Brien) relish their childhood mischief. St. Louis is the center of the planet as it prepares for the 1904 World’s Fair.
The idyllic life of the Smith family is shaken when their Father announces that they are relocating to New York City. His wife, children, maid, and Father are not pleased about his decision. Thankfully, Mr. Smith has a change of heart when he realizes how devastated his clan is by the potential move. The Smith’s stay in St. Louis and enjoy the Fair and a happy, tuneful ending.
