PUNQ’s -- Top-300 -- 1939

------------------------------------------

1939.... considered by many THE classic Hollywood year! And it most likely is. While world cinema was being strangled by wars, Hollywood was finally taking chances for the first time in years with some major productions in genres they'd long been ignoring.


The Wizard Of Oz and Gone with the Wind are untouchable all time classics! Not far off are Mr. Smith Goes to Washington, Wuthering Heights, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Beau Geste, Gunga Din, Dark Victory, The Roaring Twenties, Only Angels Have Wings, Of Mice and Men, Young Mr. Lincoln, Midnight, Another Thin Man, Goodbye, Mr. Chips, The Four Feathers to name just the tip of the iceberg.
