Mr Smith Goes To Washington (1939) is, by far, my absolute favorite film, with It's a Wonderful Life a close second.  Could it be the Jimmy Stewart factor?.  *swoon*  Perhaps…

I also really enjoy Since You Went Away and The Best Years of Our Lives, both of which beautifully convey the sentiment of that era.

Does anybody else remember a film, I believe it's from the 40s, where a man and woman meet near a clock tower and they end up falling in love and getting married very quickly because the man is in the military? I saw it on tv a while ago and I loved it so much. It's one of my favorites but I don't even know its title!

Yes, Scarlett!  I believe you are referring to The Clock, which starred Judy Garland and Robert Walker…such a charming film, and quite an adventure!  It was an interesting break for Ms. Garland, as we were so accustomed to seeing her in roles that included her singing.

I love old and classic movies. They didn't have the technology to amaze the viewers with visual effects, but some of them had great storylines and writing. Anyway, my favorite is Casablanca. I'm a sucker for romance, that's why. Haha…I've been also meaning to watch Citizen Kane because it's always on the list of greatest movies of all time, but I've been struggling to find a copy.

Thank you so much, that is exactly the movie I was talking about! I would love to get a copy of this movie. It left such an impact on me, definitely one of my new favorites from that era. I just looked it up and apparently it is one of only three films Judy Garland did not sing in.
