Re: favorite movie of 1939

Great thread, although it should probably be a poll.

I'll go with Stagecoach...the film that helped westerns return to mainstream releases for the next 30 years.

I'm sure I'll be in the distinct minority, but Gone With the Wind.

Oz, baby.

Though I also rather liked The Story of Alexander Graham Bell.

Either Beau Geste or Gunga Din. Man, they made some great action-adventure movies in the 30s.

Impossible to choose.

I will say it's refreshing to see another person on this forum appreciate 'Only Angels Have Wings'.

I'd probably go with that for 'favorite'

THE ROARING TWENTIES, directed by Raoul Walsh and starring James Cagney, Humphrey Bogart and the always underrated Paul Kelly. It was the first film produced by Broadway journalist Mark Hellinger, and it's about rival bootleggers in prohibition-era New York.
