Meet Me In St. Louis Blu-ray (Updated)

Posted August 15, 2011 06:05 PM by Josh Katz

Warner Bros.Warner Home Video is planning to release Meet Me In St. Louis on Blu-ray this winter. Director Vincente Minnelli's classic musical stars Judy Garland (The Wizard of Oz) as Esther Smith, a spirited teenager struggling with her father's decision to move the family from their beloved St. Louis home to New York City just before the 1904 St. Louis World's Fair.

While the studio has not announced the full list of technical and supplemental specifications for the Blu-ray, the disc is rumored to come in book packaging and contain the following bonus features:
  • Introduction by Liza Minnelli
  • Audio commentary by Garland biographer John Fricke, actress Margaret O'Brien, screenwriter Irving Brecher, songwriter Hugh Martin, and Barbara Freed-Saltzman, daughter of producer Arthur Freed
  • 3 documentary specials - Meet Me in St. Louis: The Making of an American Classic, Hollywood: The Dream Factory, and Becoming Attractions: Judy Garland
  • The 1966 pilot for the Meet Me in St. Louis TV series
  • 2 vintage shorts - 1930's Bubbles and 1941's Skip to My Lou
  • Audio Vault featuring an outtake of "Boys and Girls Like You and Me" and a 1946 Lux Radio Theater broadcast
Meet Me In St. Louis is expected to street on December 13th.

I'm so excited for this release! I heard there is also going to be a CD sampler included with the digibook. Let's hope so!

Meet Me in St Louis is great news and as a digibook even better. We're being flooded with musicals. These will all benefit with the look and sound bringing them back to new life as only Blu-Ray can do. Day One purchase!

Well, I like this news! I hope they have given this a fitting transfer.
This film up on a big screen never looked razor sharp, unlike some other three strip Technicolor films.
I am hoping this looks gorgeous in full Technicolor projected with my Marantz VP-10S1!

West Side Story? Judy Garland? Well, the gays no longer have an excuse to not make the switch to Blu-ray. :P



I say that in the most queer-friendly way possible.

@repete66211

I've been on Blu-ray since 2008, and musicals aren't the only thing I'm into. Not every gay is in love with Judy and West Side Story.

I always remember Jan Hooks and I think Nora Dunn from SNL back in the late 80's did a sketch of this film singing that song "Clang Clang with the trollies.." Makes me think of them and laugh each time I see that part

Yet another Judy Garland classic I'll buy down the road, though I haven't seen this one yet. Keep up the good work, Warner. And keep the digibooks coming. I love them.

@cdmaniac I too, do not like the Blu-Ray cover art work for this title. I much prefer the art work on the DVD covers to the Blu-Ray covers as a whole. The DVD covers have the look of the original movie posters and I like that. All in all, I hope Meet Me In St. Louis will be given the same wonderful treatment that Warners has given so many of it's classic titles. Looking forward to this release and many more classics in the near future!!

This is a classic in many levels. But note to first-time viewers: this movie has basically no plot, just a few unrelated events that made up a portrait of suburban life. Credit to the filmmakers who made everything interesting. It could be saccharine at times, as it was made for wartime viewers. All the musical interludes are worth your while, including the show-stopping "Clang clang clang went the trolley..."
