Time For Those Big Guns, Darlings!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You Just Can't Beat Judy And Margaret!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

                             One of the most perfect moments in film is the Christmas sequence in "Meet me In St. Louis," which begins with Esther (Judy Garland) returning home from a party to comfort a mournful Tootie (Margaret O'Brien, in a Juvenile Oscar winning performance!!!) by singing a now signature classic, culminating with Tootie running hysterically out of the house, and into the yard, to smash the snowmen!!!!!!!!!!

                            The angels weep at this sequence, I am telling you!!!!!!!!!!!  So, now that we are zeroing in on Christmas, it is time to rev up the musical ante, by including stronger stuff, and I cannot think of any better place to start than here!!!!!!!!!!

                             This sequence reduces me to tears, in seconds.  Now, I don't want to give my girls complexes, or anything, especially if you are starting your day by reading this, but it wouldn't be Christmas without this perfect screen moment.  So, here goes!

                                Live on in our hearts, Judy and Margaret!!!!!!!!!! (But Margaret is still with us!)
