The Harvey Girls
On a train trip West to become a mail-order bride, Susan Bradley meets a cheery crew of young women traveling out to open a " Harvey House " restaurant at a remote whistle-stop to provide good cooking and wholesome company for railway travellers. When Susan and her bashful suitor find romance daunting, she joins the Harvey Girls instead. The saloon across the street with its alluring worldly-wise women offers them tough competition, fair and foul, and Susan catches the eye of the Ned Trent, the distant but intense proprietor of the bar.
Judy Garland and Angela Lansbury star in a high-spirited Technicolor musical western, set in an 1880s frontier town. A big hit at box offices, the film won an Oscar for the song “On the Atchison, Topeka and the Santa Fe”.
