I'm planning on doing the wrap-up thread for at least the '60s, '70s, '80s, '90s, and '00s list soon. Hopefully there will be some more submissions by then.

My favorite film from the 40's, The Devil And Daniel Webster with the bewitching Simone Simon.

That's a good one, Indy. Haven't seen it in a while. Love the avi, btw


Had a movie for my 30's list, but found out it was '41. So I'm mentioning it here, cuz it's another great western. They Died With Their Boots On - Errol Flynn as General Custer. Maybe not as solid as the John Ford epics of the 40's but still worth seeing. Just like Ft. Apache & She Wore a Yellow Ribbon, They Died features the wonderful 7th Cavalry song "Garryowen", which I've just found out is an old Irish marching song. Love that song.
to Irish music

I just watched that a few months ago for the first time. I can't get enough Erroll Flynn. Just saw a great one on Turner Classic Movies recently, one of his rare comedic roles, Footsteps in the Dark. It was a little comedy/thriller hybrid along the lines of The Thin Man films (which more people need to see because they're brilliant), and did not disappoint. A shame he didn't get to do more roles like this.

Is there a '30's list? I was just going to mention 'Wuthering Heights', starring Laurence Olivier .. .. one of my most favourite movies ever. Just discovered though, that it was made in 1939.
