Gone With the Wind is a good one. Think that was 1939 but not sure. I know one thing that is for sure that movie has been shown thousands of times.

Here's a little song that was popular in the 40's; My Mom used to sing it to me:

My daddy would sing that to me too LFF. Thank you for the precious memories. Daddy went to heaven on Nov 5th 1985. Next week will be the anniversary. He was a young man of 64 years.

I used that on a hangman game on another forum. Took people a long time to get it. It was first played on radio station WOR, New York, by Al Trace and his Silly Symphonists. The song made the pop charts several times, with a version by the Merry Macs reaching No. 1 in March 1944. The song was also a number one sheet music seller, with sales of over 450,000 within the first three weeks of release.

I love the oldies.
I too recall Mairzy dotes
And Doze dotes ,
And little lambs eat Ivy

Old to me, and among the best, is "To Kill a Mockingbird",
"A Tree Grows in Brooklyn " (Books and movies)
"It's a Wonderful Life"
etc

Gregory Peck was probably my favorite actor of that time.

I liked John Wayne but maybe that was a bit later than the era we are referring to.

Actually, John Wayne had his first movie role, as an extra in 1926 in The Great K & A Train Robbery, with Tom Mix. I think his first top billing movie was The Big Trail, in 1930.

James Stewart is my all-time favorite (Anatomy of a Murder, to name one)

Robert Mitchum, Alan Ladd, Spencer Tracy, oh so many.

The old radio shows were so much nicer than today's programs. We had to use our imagination.

Margie, I just finished seeing all episodes, twice.

Lightfoot, we used to sit by the radio after dark, when all work was finished, listening to The Creaking Door", "The Lone Ranger", what else was there ? Sometimes we managed to get Daddy to tell us scary stories of when his ancestors settled in the mountains of North Carolina and how Panthers would try to get into the room where the boys slept and other tales to frighten us before we had to walk down the long porch to the room where we slept. Talk about fear ! Delicious fear.

My Dad would tell us stories to scare us, and my Mom would admonish him. He'd just laugh.

Not on topic, but I awoke this morning wondering if I had misused words in a poem I wrote long ago. The line was, "
"Your love is like snuggling under a quilt of Eider down".
I questioned myself on Eider down. After looking in the dictionary, I realized I had correctly used those words. What struck me as funny was the fact I awoke thinking of a line from a poem I wrote ages ago.

Early morning met me with a Patsy Cline song, "I go out walking after midnight in the moonlight the way we used to do". It was put out after she met death in a plane crash. Also in the crash were Cowboy Copus and Hawkshaw Hawkins.
Another oldie in my mind was "Cry". I already forgot the artist, but I really like the song.

Patsy was late hubby female vocalist. He would play her songs over and over keeping her music alive in his mind. My favorite is Lorretta and she sang a lot of Patsy's songs.

I loved the song 'Cry'! Josh Wind sang that at the Tara restaurant, where I was working in 1970, and Josh introduced it as a song by the late great Johnnie Ray!

Ah yes, Johnnie Ray sang it. He looked so ordinary, just a slender built, plain guy, but that song !
