The Harvey Girls (1946). 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, Susan joins the Harvey Girls instead.

Judy Garland’s at her sweetheart best in this movie about a young woman conned by a player who finds solace and friendship with a group of women and then romance all over again with that player. It’s got great songs, a fun tempo and is genuinely a pretty damn charming film. 7/10.
