40’s movies marathon – best of 1948

Well, that was 1948.  A year of slow but noticable change in the movie industry, and of change in this marathon, where I learned how to upload clips of the scences I can’t or don’t want to forget.  You can also find the clips on YouTube, and that may actually be more interesting than these reviews, because is there anything more pointless than reading about movies?  I try to make clips that represent what I liked about the movie, so if you like the clip, you’ll probably like the movie.
