Meet Me in St. Louis

Continuity mistake: In the living room, during the party, Margaret O'Brien does a dance with a straw hat and cane with Judy Garland. In one shot Margaret has on blue slippers and in another shot she has on pink slippers.

Continuity mistake: The levels of soup in people's bowls change during the dinner scene at the beginning.

Continuity mistake: When Esther is singing boy next door, near the end of the song - after the small dance bit, she goes back to the window and puts her hand on the curtain. But in the close up her hand is in a different place.

Audio problem: After Tootie sings 'I Was Drunk Last Night' you see a far away shot where Esther grabs her leg and says 'Tootie you very ba..' Cut to the close up where she repeats 'Tootie you very bad'

Factual error: At the beginning of the movie, when Mr. Smith comes home from work upset after losing a court case, Esther suggests that he make a career change. Mr. Smith responds saying he would like to play first base for the Baltimore Orioles. There was no baseball team in Baltimore until the 1950s.

Continuity mistake: In the party scene where Tootis sings her sleeve is up. When Lon pulls her onto his lap the sleeve is down, but then when she gets off his lap, the sleeve is back up again.


Continuity mistake: When Esther comes down the side stairway to attend the party for her brother Lon, the grandfather clock is seen merrily ticking away. Yet when the camera angle changes to show her coming down the main stairway, the clock's pendulum is at a standstill.

Continuity mistake: When Esther sits down after she has put on her corset for the Christmas Ball, Rose's hand goes from her stomach to the arm of the chair instantly - just when Esther says, "I don't think I can go through with it".

Factual error: There are mountains in the background in several of the scenes, but there aren't actually any mountains in or near St Louis.

Continuity mistake: When Rose and Esther are sitting on the porch watching John Truitt (near the beginning), Esther is sitting very close to the ivy plant and in a close up she is holding one of the flowers, but in the next shot she isn't holding one and is sitting further away.

Continuity mistake: In the scene after the father has announced the move to New York he walks into the next room and the mother brings him a thin slice of cake. In the next shot, the slice of cake is much thicker.

In the film, when Margaret O'Brien is sad because she doesn't want to move, she knocks down snowmen and cries hysterically. It is rumored that in real life Margaret was told that her dog died when it really hadn't, just so she would cry. Apparently Margaret O'Brien denies this, claiming this story is not true. She explains that though she didn't feel it was easy to cry, she was able to muster it after being told that June Allyson - her MGM rival in sobbing - could cry on cue.
