Release Date: December 13, 2011
Meet Me in St. Louis was practically made for high definition. The film looks and sounds incredible in the Blu-ray format. In addition to the remastered film, this release is in the "digi-book" format with an oddly put together booklet that truthfully has little to offer. Also included in a CD “Soundtrack Sampler” features the following four songs (and only these four): "Meet Me In St. Louis" (Ensemble); "The Boy Next Door"; "The Trolley Song"; and "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas."
