40's movies marathon - best of 1943

As a service for readers who have misunderstood the movie marathon concept, and think it's about me being nice and selecting all the Classic Movies for you, here's my favorites from 1943:

Good war movies

This Land is Mine
Five Graves to Cairo

War movies (and cartoons) that transcend good and bad, and should be watched for mindblowing historical reasons

Victory Through Air Power (Pictures)
Mission to Moscow
Private SNAFU

Dark movies from the dark continent

Vredens Dag
Le Corbeau

Axis movies

Sugata Sanshiro


The Fallen Sparrow
Shadow of a Doubt

Peculiar Britishness

The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp

American self-doubt

The Ox Bow Incident

Segregated musicals

Stormy Weather

40's movies marathon - best of 1942

I'm (almost) through 1942 in the movie marathon. Here are my favourites:

Comedies that may include music

The Palm Beach Story
The Man Who Came to Dinner
To Be or Not to Be
Holiday Inn

Gangsters and/or politicians

Johnny Eager
The Glass Key

The war (I wonder how it will end)

Kampf um Norwegen
Went the Day Well
One of Our Aircraft is Missing

Serious drama (possibly containing cute rabbits)

Now, Voyager

And now: 1943, a year of .. even more war and genocide.
