Cinema: Midwinter Favorites

Harsh winter weather kept a lot of U.S. moviegoers at home during the past few weeks. Variety reported a noticeable slump at box offices. But neither snow nor slush nor biting winds bit too deeply into the popularity of:

1) 13 Rue Madeleine (20th Century-Fox)

2) Till the Clouds Roll By and The Yearling (both MGM)

3) The Jolson Story (Columbia)

4) The Shocking Miss Pilgrim (20th Century-Fox)

5) The Best Years of Our Lives (RKO Radio)

6) It's a Wonderful Life (RKO Radio).
