Centennial Summer is a 1946 musical film directed by Otto Preminger.[3][4] The musical, that stars Jeanne Crain and Cornel Wilde, is based on a novel by Albert E. Idell.

It was produced in response to the hugely successful 1944 MGM musical film Meet Me in St. Louis.


The movie is about two sisters growing up in Philadelphia in the 1870s. They both fall for a Frenchman who has to prepare the pavilion for the Centennial Exposition.



The movie was nominated twice at the 19th Academy Awards. One of those nominations was for Best Original Song for the song All Through the Day, written by Jerome Kern and Oscar Hammerstein II. In Kern's case, the nomination was posthumous as he had died on 11 November 1945.
