The best picture Oscar-winner of 1942 was a simple wartime romance that, for several generations, rose to, and stayed at, the top of the pile of treasured black-and-white romantic dramas. Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman, as well as Claude Rains, deserved every accolade they received. My question, though, is whether that reputation will be embraced and carried forward by the current generation of young film fans? If so, this is a great place to start – no commercial interruptions, no editing, and nobody two rows away with a lit-up cellphone.
