I agree with Rob — this movie is great entertainment and escapism.

Keep in mind that it was released nearly 70 years ago and what appears stilted and cliche to us now was probably swallowed whole back then.

Remember that production snafus also plaqued the movie, which ended up with three different directors (Victor Fleming, George Cukor and Sam Wood)

1939 — What a great year for movies. Also nominated for Oscars for best picture were The Wizard of Oz, Goodbye Mr. Chips, Wuthering Heights, Stagecoach, Mr. Smith Goes to Washington, Ninotchka, Dark Victory, Of Mice and Men, and Love Affair.

They don't make 'em like that anymore.
