Ah, question 23... an RKO sweep! Of course, Bachelor Ma is by FAR my fave '39 film (and for that matter, of ANY year)...which, yes, there's some 'biggies' in that year, but... none which I'd rather watch than BM, so... there ya go...

...speaking of which, hope you and your shave a ...happeeee...nu....jeeer!!!

KIG, Nicole!
