Judy’s musical follow-up to Meet Me In St. Louis, and one of her (and MGM’s) biggest hits. The great production number “On The Atchison, Topeka and the Santa Fe” won the Oscar for Best Song. This is essentially the same as the laserdisc edition, complete with the outtakes and audio pre-recordings.
This DVD was included in the seven-disc boxed set “The Judy Garland Signature Collection.” The Warner Archive re-released the DVD on January 10, 2017.
The film has finally gotten a true high definition upgrade and restoration from the original film elements by the Warner Archive, released on Blu-ray on December 22, 2020, in all of its Technicolor glory!
In December 2020, the Warner Archive premiered the film on Blu-ray which features a new HD remaster from the original film elements.
