Regarding Meet Me in St. Louis, released in 1944, head of MGM musicals Arthur Freed told studio boss Louis B. Mayer: “I want to make this into the most delightful piece of Americana ever.”

“He achieved his aim with a movie that defines perfection, as it captures the spirit of hope and anxiety that informed the last years of the second world war, when it was made,” says the UK’s Guardian. “Truly a film for all seasons and all time….”
