Poll: Happy 75th Birthday (Favorite 1939 Film)

The films released in 1939 are 75 years old this year. Which of these notable 1939 films is your favorite?

Of this poll, IMDb Daily Poll Board member ElMaruecan82 said: "I think this is a terrific idea, but not because these films are turning 75 this year but because they happen to be from the greatest cinematic year ever: 1939. I believe the year deserves a little tribute in your descriptive text, something reminding us that Hollywood's Golden Age reached its pinnacle in 1939, before the Old World would forever collapse under Hitler's tanks ... like a last gasp of brightness, life and colors before the dark."
