Best films of 1945

Reading Mark Harris’ Five Came Back several years ago led me to John Huston’s grim, unflincing documentary THe Battle of San Pietro; it complements the light but anxiety-ridden The Clock. Elsewhere we get the usual excellent film noir. Someday I may like Detour and Dead of Night as more than obligations.

The Clock (Vincente Minnelli)
The Battle of San Pietro (John Huston)
Fallen Angel (Otto Preminger)
They Were Expendable (John Ford)
The Southerner (Jean Renoir)
Children of Paradise (Marcel Carné)
I Know Where You’re Going! (Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger)
Mildred Pierce (Michael Curtiz)
Scarlet Street (Fritz Lang)
Brief Encounter (David Lean)
