Synopsis
On the outs in Hollywood due to the blacklist, director Edward Dmytryk briefly operated in England in the late 1940s. Though filmed in its entirety in London, Dmytryk's Give Us This Day is set in New York during the depression. Fellow blacklistee Sam Wanamaker is starred as the head of an Italian immigrant family struggling to survive the economic crisis. Perhaps had it been made in Hollywood as intended, Give Us This Day would not have been allowed to run on for 120 minutes, nor would the actors have been permitted to indulge in terminal sanctimony. Based on Pietro di Donato's novel Christ in Concrete, Give Us This Day was released in the US under the intriguing title Salt to the Devil. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide

A list of many great movies that I've yet to see, a couple that I've already seen, and some not so great ones. Everything that's on my queue - watch them with me!

The Best of 1949
12345678910
As many of 1949's best films remind us, the socially and (to some extent) economically tumultuous immediate post -WWII years were definitely not the "good old days"
