Help!

For a project at school I am watching Cheaper by the Dozen, Meet me in St. Louis, and Yours Mine and Ours.

All three of these movies are based on true stories and I have to compare the actual story to what the movie portrays. If any of you have any actual events about these three families I was wondering if you could post it here, or e-mail it to me at alaskangirl@adnmail.com Any thing that I use will be cited in my report with the persons first and last name. This is also due Friday, so I will be collecting information until Thursday night. Then I will start writing the final.

Thanks a bunch

Shell

I didn't find much on Meet Me in St. Louis, but here's what I did find:

From the Chicago Reader - "Vincente Minnelli created one of his masterpieces with this loosely plotted but tightly structured 1944 story of a middle-class family waiting through spring, summer, and fall for the opening of the Saint Louis World's Fair of 1904.'

And from Info and Tidbits at rottontomatoes.com - "The inspiration for MEET ME IN ST. LOUIS, Sally Smith Benson's childhood home, was demolished in December 1994, after falling into decay. Five hundred bricks were saved from the site."

Sorry I couldn't be more help.
