MONSIEUR VERDOUX (1947)

This “comedy of murders” starring Charlie Chaplin as a serial killer was a scandalous flop in the US but has since been re-evaluated.

ODD MAN OUT (1947)

I really enjoyed this dream-like film noir about a doomed man’s wanderings through Belfast.

MIRACLE ON 34TH STREET (1947)

A holiday classic about whether a crazy guy who thinks he’s Santa is actually Santa, made a time when studios insisted Christmas movies wouldn’t sell.
