No time (or $$) for the Iowa State Fair -- or you live far away from us? Deb here suggesting four more 'fairs' to consider this weekend. Pull up TCM on your cable station (yes, the old-movie station), butter some popcorn and enjoy!
My Fair Lady (1964)
This isn't a fair movie -- it's a GREAT movie. Audrey Hepburn at her BEST in this classic, intelligent, witty musical! And the costumes & hats are super-photo-worthy!
State Fair (1962)
This is a movie about the Iowa State Fair so it has to make the list.
Trivia buffs: What was the name of the big boar in the movie?
Trivia Answer: Blueboy -- and he was love-sick.
So Long At The Fair (1951)
Jean Simmons looking for her missing brother at the 1889 Paris Exhibition. This movie is on my to-watch list and it gets high marks from others that love a good mystery.
Meet Me In St Louis (1945)
A FAVORITE of mine! I've watched it at least 20 times -- mostly with the grandkids (often with Grandpa too). Judy Garland sings her way through the seasons. Literally, the seasons: The movie is four little vignettes representing summer, fall (our favorite), winter, spring.
The climax (sort of): The 1904 St Louis World's Fair.
