A warm family drama that should be on dvd.
This film is a warm family drama that everyone can watch and enjoy..the only problem is? "Big City" is not on dvd..and I still don't why?
Thanks for finally airing "Big City" again. My five-year wait for its return was worth it. This movie, along with "The Unfinished Dance", was Margaret O'Brien's transition between her pigtailed roles and the more grown-up characters in "Little Women" and "The Secret Garden". The whole cast was wonderful, as was the music. Thanks again for the opportunity to see it, TCM.
Discovering "New" star

I was pleased to see TCM airing these Margaret O'Brien movies. I saw my first of her movies a few years ago in "Meet Me In St. Louis (I love musicals). I have since discovered what a wonderful actress Ms. O'Brien is. I love her movies and would like to see more of them made available on dvd. Perhaps a boxed set, including "Tenth Avenue Angel" and "Three Wise Fools." I saw "Big City" today, and was delighted to see a very young Betty Garrett (later on "All In The Family" and "Laverne and Shirley") singing and dancing along with Robert Preston, Danny Thomas and others. Wow! I would love to add this movie to my classic collection.
Why not a Margaret O'Brien boxed set?

I would like to see a set of Margaret's movies. The least known ones! Some of them were message movies like "Journey for Margaret" but they are so badly needed today for the innocence and moral values. This movie portrayed how a community can rally around to help it's people. So did "Tenth Avenue Angel". I am trying to DVR them when they come on so I can show my Granddaughter who is 8 years old. I was Margaret's double/stand-in for a few years. So I would have some of the later films. Let's put them on DVD's at least, I know a lot of people who would like to have them for their kids! There is too much of Teen Idol garbage around, too much for 7 to 8 year olds. I also have VHS and Beta so any medium will do! June Havoc originally played Shoo Shoo, but she left in the middle of the movie and her scenes were cut out. Unfortuneatly I was in most of those scenes with her. Oh well, I never wanted to be an actress anyway! I liked the technical side of movie making!
Please show this movie!
This movie must be one of the least-aired from the original Turner library, and I don't really know why. Almost everything I've read about it is positive. Please show it, TCM. I'll even give it more honest ratings if we can finally see it! ;-)
