Margaret O'Brien

MARGARET O'BRIEN (1937-Present), born Angela Maxine O'Brien

Meet Me in St. Louis (1944)
Haven't you seen Meet Me in St. Louis (1944)? By far her most well-known, most memorable role.

Watch this and then see these other four films.

Our Vines Have Tender Grapes (1945) In my opinion, her best role next to Meet Me in St. Louis.
Lost Angel (1944) This film was made before her breakthrough in Meet Me in St. Louis, but we can already see her emerging talent here.
Three Wise Fools (1946) A movie somewhat outside the mainstream that shows how versatile she was.
The Secret Garden (1949) One of the best of her later movies.
