Synopsis

POPULAR PICTURES OF THE HOLLYWOOD 1940s by John Reid

A detailed review of 120 popular films, mostly from Hollywood's 1940s. Includes comprehensive cast and technical credits, plus background and release information. The movies covered include such classics as the Spencer Tracy-Katharine Hepburn Adam's Rib ; Walt Disney's animated features: Dumbo and Ichabod and Mr Toad ; the Frank Sinatra-Gene Kelly musical Anchors Aweigh ; my favorite Fred Astaire picture The Belle of New York ; Roy Rogers' best film Bells of Rosarita ; one of Orson Welles' best directing efforts, Black Magic ; Wendell Corey's first (and best) Desert Fury ; Disney's original Fantasia ; Cecil B. DeMille's spectacular Samson and Delilah ; four of director Michael Curtiz's most enjoyable motion pictures: Mildred Pierce, The Sea Hawk , Bright Leaf , Romance on the High Seas ; and the wonderful, original version of Roxie Hart starring Ginger Rogers.
