List 34: Overalls movies set in the 1940s

6 Jan


My 3rd list is about movies and TV series set in the 1940s.

Note that this is an incomplete list as I removed around 15-20 movies (like younger kids, non-farm or most non-US setting, and sorry most of the females, so only here if also males are).

I thought that there were much less movies set in the 40s and much more in the 30s but they are about equal. So the 50s coming in a separate list and are maybe not as good as the 30s and 40s and probably less farm content.

Almost all movies here are very good, so I don’t colorized the titles for the best ones like in the previous list (just if m+f if I remember). There is no specific order, just order of the search results, except for some of my favourites on the top.

Pics showing The Sun Comes Up, “Bless Me, Ultima”, The Runaway (2000) and The Underdog (1943).

For my other lists see the new tab “Year lists” on the very top row next to the other subpages.
