Filling in the Forties

Since 2004, I've consistently watched 100 or more films released each year. A brief glance at my STATS page shows a "trough" in my viewing habits -- an average of just 16.7 films watched per year between 1943 and 1949, although I never watched fewer than 17 films per annum throughout the preceding decade.

Obviously, this is a gap in my experience as a cinephile, one which I intend to correct. Here, then, are 100 films from my "Missing Generation" that I'll be watching over the coming months. Ratings and links to reviews will appear in the NOTES.
