Editorial Reviews

This glorified Technicolor commercial for the Fred Harvey restaurants stars Judy Garland as a 19th-century mail-order bride. Upon arriving in New Mexico, Garland discovers that her husband-to-be is the town drunk. She cuts her losses and takes a job at the local Harvey restaurant, an establishment which endeavors to bring a little civilization and class to the wide open spaces. Harvey's operation is challenged by saloon-owner John Hodiak, corrupt-judge Preston S. Foster, and local-madam Angela Lansbury. With the help of tenderfoot Ray Bolger, Garland and her fellow waitresses foil the corrupt elements in town. Prominent in the supporting cast are Cyd Charisse, Marjorie Main, Chill Wills, Kenny Baker and Virginia O'Brien (whose musical numbers aren't quite as rambunctious as the contributions of the others, mainly because O'Brien was pregnant during filming). The songs are for the most part perfunctory, with the spectacular exception of the Harry Warren and Johnny Mercer's Oscar-winning "Atchison, Topeka and the Santa Fe." The Harvey Girls is tenuously based on a more sober-sided historical volume by Samuel Hopkins Adams. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

The Harvey Girls is one Judy Garland's most underrated motion pictures. This complete selection of the musical numbers is great. After having listened to the deleted numbers, one wonders what the criteria is for whether a number stays or goes. Especially for the number, "In the Valley (where the evenin' sun goes down)" in particular. This score, which is one of my favorites seems to have had a more prominent role in the movie until the editorial process. That however is one of the beauties of these soundtrack releases that has all the numbers. In my opinion this is some of Judy's best work.

This is an absolutely fabulous soundtrack. It presents all the music recorded for the film...much of it went unused. It is unfortunate, because the missing material conveys that what was a great movie as released could have been exceptional. So put on the cd, close your eyes, and form your own mental pictures. It will be most satisfying.

Made during the heyday of both MGM and Judy Garland, this is a prime example of Garland at her best. Though the movie is not really very popular today, it is a staple of the Garland library and is really a gem. Same goes for the soundtrack. Highly recommended.

This rare soundtrack recording from Rhino Records is an enjoyable archival listen for anyone interested in the American musical film. While not exactly a frontline classic, "The Harvey Girls" is a quintessential example of the MGM musical tradition. Several fine songs were deleted from the film, and these are included here. All of them, especially "March of the Doagies", leaves one wondering why they were dropped. It's true, you have to be a fan of this kind of stuff to get any pleasure out of it, but though from a dated genre, these songs and performances still hold interest. Garland was at her professional, if not personal, prime here, and her renditions of "Atchison Topeka..." and "It's a Great Big World" are superb. The arrangements are all "bells-and-whistles" in the MGM grand tradition (sophistication and understatement were not their forte) but that's what makes this CD a hoot. The sound quality, of course, is necessarily limited by the source material. The primitive recording techniques of 1945 mean that clarity and sonic beauty are compromised in a way modern recording would never allow. Still, the remastering has remedied some of the aging flaws, and this is about as good as "The Harvey Girls" will ever sound to the modern listener. A curio for sure, but just right for a certain audience.

The soundtrack was great! I used some of the songs as an introduction that I did in Emporia, Kansas, on the relationship between Fred Harvey and William Allen White -- publisher of the Emporia Gazette in the first half of the last century, and nationally known syndicated columnist. It went great, and at the end of the presentation I played the number again! The numbers I used were the Main Title, Training Montage, The Wild West, Training Montage and ended with an upbeat version On the ATSF (sung by Petule Clark). The Training Montage I repeated as it emphasized what the Harvey Girls wore and the proper way of setting tables, etc. ("The train must be Fed!").
