It's fascinating how many of the films we now consider Christmas classics came from the 1940s. The decade began with the romances Remember the Night (1940) and The Shop Around the Corner (1940) as well as the witty The Man Who Came to Dinner (1942). But as the decade went on, World War II started to... Read full article

Quotes from

Steve Mason: Carl isn't the real threat to me. Maybe I'm not to him. This isn't two fellows and a girl, you know. This is two fellows, a girl and her husband. I can't fight a shadow - I tried - competition's too tough. You were even going to play it safe and settle for someone you didn't love so you wouldn't be unfaithful to your husband.
Connie Ennis: Oh, you're always so wrong about me. I have a wonderful memory of a husband and a marriage. You're trying to take it away from me.
Steve Mason: Nobody wants to do that. I know. I'm sure Carl doesn't. All anybody wants is for you to live in the present and not be afraid of the future. You know, maybe it could happen again if you quit pretending that something that's dead is still alive.
Connie Ennis: Oh, alright, if it will make you any happier, you're a fortune teller. You're absolutely right about me all the time. I want everything just the way it is - Mrs. Status Quo. Just me and Timmy - no changes.
Steve Mason: And I want a girl that'll drop everything and run to me, no matter what the score is.
