The harvey girls

The Harvey Girls is a novel 1942 by Samuel Hopkins Adams on the famous Fred Harvey Harvey Houses, which was subsequently made into a 1946 MGM musical.
The film star Judy Garland, John Hodiak, Angela Lansbury, Virginia O'Brien, Ray Bolger, and Marjorie Main, and was directed by George Sidney. He won an Academy Award for Best Song for "On the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe," written by Johnny Mercer and Harry Warren. A great musical of comedy and drama with the all time Judy
The cast are brilliant and each brings their own character
to life perfectly. Judy Garland is the perfect choice for the witty,
strong minded Susan Bradley, John Hodiak is great for Ned Trent and
Ray Bolger's solo dance number is jaw dropping stuff!
