Margaret O'Brien and Judy Garland, "Meet Me in St. Louis"
Margaret O'Brien & Judy Garland

    Charles continues his conversation with Margaret O'Brien, who was only 7 years old when she starred in the 1944 classic, "Meet Me in St. Louis."  Margaret talks about working with Judy Garland and the sense that the entire cast, including director Vincent Minnelli, felt like a family.  She also talks about a crying competition she had with June Allyson.  In this online-only extended interview, Margaret talks about the red coat she wore in "Meet Me in St. Louis," how it fell into the hands of the King of Pop, and what happened to it after he died.
