OTD November 28 - Meet Me In St Louis

MGM

1944: The MGM movie musical "Meet Me in St. Louis," starring Judy Garland, Margaret O'Brien and Mary Astor, opens in New York. It would prove to be the second-highest grossing picture of the year, only behind "Going My Way." Garland debuted the standards "The Trolley Song" and "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas," which both became hits after the film was released.
