A colorful and beautifully filmed musical with the lovely Judy Garland. It is best remembered for the Academy Award-winning song "On the Atchison, Topeka and the Santa Fe." (First and only full viewing - 5/8/2010)

Entertaining movie, overall. The train number is a must see/hear.

A fun and feel good musical that sometimes lacked in plot, but made up in energy.

One of Garland's biggest hits was obviously inspired by the stage hit OKLAHOMA; the tuneful Warren-Mercer score includes the big, Oscar-winning production number "On the Atchison, Topeka & the Santa Fe," along with star turns by Angela Lansbury, Virginia O'Brien and Cyd Charisse; Ray Bolger is left with a thankless role and one short dance number.

Even after all this time the music, wit and humor still hold up very well! This is another Garland classic that is worth every moment!

I didn't get into this movie. It wasn't bad, but I just was surprised when it was over and it felt like something had been missing. Or maybe I just missed something.

Judy Garland and Ray Bolger (Dorothy and The Scarecrow) reunited, and with Angela Lansbury as the mean showgirl! This is really a lot of fun, with great music (with Oscar winning song "On the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe"). This is worth checking out!

The Harvey Girls is an excellent film. It is about Susan Bradley who joins the Harvey Girls after leaving her fiancee who is the town drunk. Judy Garland and Ray Bolger give amazing performances. The screenplay is well written. George Sidney did a great job directing this movie. I enjoyed watching this motion picture because of the humor and music. The Harvey Girls is a must see.

The story is ok, and Judy Garland is stunningly beautiful; the songs are pretty meh, though.

Charming, and funny. Lots of cheese; great for family or young girl viewing. Young Judy & Angela are both captivating performers (and rivals).

For a musical I would have to say the songs are probably the worst part of this movie - apart from the song as the train arrives in town, that's a damn catchy tune. What really works for this film is the story, the blend of characters both wholesome and uh trampy... and some great comedic performances - esp Judy as she enters the bar holding the two guns - probably my favourite scene from the whole film.

Judy and Ray (Bolger) return together for another classic. They don't make movies like this anymore. How many movie today get 100% critic reviews?

One of my favorites. John Hodiak is handsome and the romance between him and Garland is amazing.
