Some more of my favourites from the 40's Twelve O'Clock High (1949) - Gregory Peck His Girl Friday (1940) - Cary Grant Double Indemnity (1944) - Fred McMurray, Barbara Stanwyck, Edward

Maureen O'Hara sometimes reminds me of Gillian Anderson in that she can flip-flop between Irish (or English in Gillian's case) and American accents at the drop of a hat depending on who she's talking

I was going to say Angels With Dirty Faces - but that was 1938.

Both great films Paul, yes, Angels With Dirty Faces is one of my favourite Cagney movies .... the scene near the end where he goes to the electric chair and "dies yellow" so he doesn't become a cult hero to the street gangs is brilliant

Yes John

Angels is probably one of my top 3 favourites. Trish bought me a limited boxed edition. But it's on video, & we ain't get one now. Gonna get it on DVD

Cant remember what it was called but it was on Sky a few weeks ago, its the story of a RAF bomber pilot ( David Niven) who was supposed to die in his plane and go to heaven, but the angel whose job it was to collect him missed him in the fog and he survived, he then got it on with a radio operator chick and so subsequently had to plead his case in heaven to stay alive and not take his place in heaven.....

A great Sunday afternoon film.....I must of first seen it as a kid and loved it so I was chuffed to stumble across it again recently.
