This movie has humor and romance. Oh, and music!

And since I don't remember having seen The Wizard of Oz (1939), this is the first movie I've seen with Judy Garland.

Favorite Song: "The Trolley Song."

The songs written for the movie are by Hugh Martin and Ralph Blane. Interestingly, "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" originated with this movie.
