One of my Mom's Favorite Films. A GUY NAMED JOE (1943)

Remembering my Mom with one of her favorite films. She would've been 75 today. 

Directed by Victor Fleming
Story by Dalton Trumbo, Frederick Hazlitt Brennen, Chandler Sprague, David Boehm
Music by Herbert Stothart
Cinematography by George J. Folsey, Karl Freund
Art Direction by Cedric Gibbons

We end our War Bonds marathon with a film from the War Buddy genre that my Mom was particularly fond of. 

She passed away on February 28th, 2010 and we honor her with the message of hope and everlasting life that this film celebrates. With an encyclopedic mind on so many topics as well as film, she was the primary inspiration for my own interest in cinema. And she had always insisted I see this Spencer Tracy classic.
Finally I did a few years ago and I loved it. I hope you do, too.

Here it is. Thanks Mom. We love you and we miss you.

Never fear. The Cinemated Man is here!
