Look at this batch from 1939! They were always so scampish and erudite!

a) Goodbye Mr Chips -- A teacher, ransacked by life, touches lives, boys.

b) Stagecoach -- Riding across the prairie at dusk, injuns crouching in wait

c) Gone with the Wind -- This mammy knows what's her bidness and what ain't!

d) The Wizard of Oz -- A yellow brick road, a man behind the curtain, the journey in between.

e) The Rules of the Game -- False smiles, brocaded, withered souls, and rabbit pelts.

f) Beware Spooks! -- A funhouse of phantoms and fancy-free: Joe E. Brown wards off the ghosts with some bitter crystalline alkaloid. Well, nobody's perfect!

g) Wuthering Heights -- The moors, where everyone seems to drop like flies and love is sickness.
