1939 was probably the greatest year for American movies ever. Here’s some examples of why:
1) Goodbye, Mr. Chips
4) Wuthering Heights
5) Dark Victory
6) Love Affair
7) Destry Rides Again
8) Mr. Smith Goes to Washington
9) Young Mr. Lincoln
10) The Hunchback of Notre Dame
11) Gunga Din
12) Only Angels Have Wings
Oh and there were these two other movies that you may have heard of…
The Wizard of Oz and Gone With the Wind.
Yes, I think it was a pretty good year for the film industry in 1939.
