Although this movie technically starts in "Spring of 1903" the climax of the movie comes at Christmas. This is truly one of those good old MGM Technicolor spectaculars.
The short synopsis is-
In the year before the 1904 St Louis World's Fair, the four Smith daughters learn lessons of life and love, even as they prepare for a reluctant move to New York.
I love most everything about the time captured in this film. The beautiful Second Empire home that the Smiths live in, and most of all the stirring song that Judy Garland sings (Have yourself a merry little Christmas) at the most poignant moment of the movie.
It's a happy Technicolor romp, that has a little somethign for everyone!
