Reviews

Vittles, songs and dance are amply ladled out when Judy Garland headlines 'The Harvey Girls', a joyous musical slice of Americana celebrating the restaurants that brought extra helpings of civilization to Old West rail passengers. Highlights include Garland holding saloon patrons at jittery gunpoint to retrieve stolen beefsteaks, Ray Bolger's loose-limbed comic hoofing, Virginia O'Brien's sure-shot comic timing, Angela Lansbury's stylish wickedness as a saloon singer and the 'On the Atchinson, Topeka and the Santa Fe' romp (nabbing it the 1946 Best Song Academy Award) that's "deservedly famous, one of the most triumphant sequences in screen-musical history" (Pauline Kael, 'The New Yorker'). All aboard!

Format: DVD
The Harvey Girls is hard to beat for sheer corny, likable nostalgia. Is it one of the great MGM musicals? Not in my opinion. The narrative is too long, John Hodiak isn't an intriguing romantic lead and some of the comic relief is too broad. Still, the movie carries with it such a high degree of good-natured professionalism that it's easy to like. The story itself is uncomplicated. A group of Harvey girls arrive at Sandrock, Arizona, to open a Harvey House, one of many restaurants Fred Harvey was establishing along the western rail lines. A Harvey House offered good, wholesome food and good, wholesome company. Susan Bradley (Judy Garland) joins them when she and her groom-to-be (Chill Wills) decide in a friendly way that their mail-order marriage arrangement wasn't such a good idea. Determined to stop the Harvey House girls are Ned Trent (John Hodiak) and Sam Purvis (Preston Foster), owners of the Alhambra, a wide-open saloon, dance hall and gambling establishment across the street from the new Harvey House. Em (Angela Lansbury), the dance hall star, doesn't like the competition, either, especially when Susan and Ned begin to notice each other.

Great movie musical or not, there are many things to enjoy. Judy Garland dominates the movie. She was 23 when she made it. Despite her immense talent and almost unnatural professional skills (I mean this as a compliment), there is an innocence about her in this movie which seems fresh and unforced. She handles the comedy and pratfalls in a very winning way. Angela Lansbury steals the scenes she has with everyone except Garland, and comes close even there.

This is my favourite MGM musical of all time. This movie has some great scores like "On the Atchison, Topeka and the Santa Fe." It won the Oscar for best song. This movie had great characters and cast. Judy Garland's gullible Character. Preston Foster's evil character. Ray Bogler's nervous character, and Virginia O'Brien's comic character. This movie has great costumes, scenery and it's a lot of fun. How much more do you want in a motion picture. Buy it on video.

This is one of those feel good movies with an excellent soundtrack. The highlight has got to be the 8-minute long 'On The stchison, Topeka & The Santa Fe. This is Judy Garland's movie, but she has a fine supporting cast inluding Cyd Charisse, Ray Bolger and a young Angela Lansbury. I think that this is a great movie and would recommend it thoroughly for a good afternoon family film.

The Harvey Girls is a lovely film! The music is absolutly beautiful, especially when Judy Garland is singing it! It stars Ray Bolger ( Scarecrow in The Wizard Of Oz), a 19 year-old Angela Lansbury, a very beautiful Judy Garland, Chill Wills plus loads more fantastic stars. There are grand balls, singing and romance. So, step on board the Atchison, Topeka and the Santa Fey train. Choo- choo!

Format: DVD
A classic M-G-M musical of comedy and drama with the timeless talent of Judy Garland.

The cast is wonderful. Miss Garland is carefree as the witty, strong minded Susan Bradley, and Virgina O'Brian + Cyd Charrise are her pals in a musical picture in a Western setting. Also seen is Ray Bolger, who starred alongside Garland years before in her masterpiece 'The Wizard of Oz' as the Scarecrow.

Judy does not seem as recklessly happy as she did in 'Meet Me in St. Louis' but still appears to be having a good time as she belts out the film's hit song 'On the Atchison, Topeka + the Santa Fe'.
