"I'd imagine the whole world was one big machine. Machines never come with any extra parts, you know. They always come with the exact amount they need. So I figured if the entire world was one big machine ... I couldn't be an extra part. I had to be here for some reason." - Hugo Cabret, "Hugo" (2011)
"Meet Me in St. Louis:" The Victorian on Kensington Avenue
Meet Me In St. Louis - From one of my all time favorite movies, this is the house from Meet Me In St. Louis, starring Judy Garland, which supposedly took place right around the St. Louis Worlds Fair in 1904. The address in the movie was 5135 Kensington Avenue. Kensington Avenue was lined with stately homes and was constructed by MGM. It was known as St. Louis Street.
Recipes and movie food from The Help! Tips for throwing a great viewing party of the film - includes Minny's fried chicken and chocolate pie, fried okra, butter beans, sweet tea, ambrosia salad, and all kinds of southern goodies.
