The poll description is as follows: These are movies, released in the 1940s, widely considered to be one of the best decades in cinema, recommended by poll authors and commentators. Which of these relatively little-known but highly recommended films, all released during the 1940, would you most like to see (again or for the first time)?
It follows the example of this live poll: http://www.imdb.com/poll/MoytA9mUH0M/?ref_=po_fp
Please follow these guidelines:
* Please nominate a film released in the 1940s that you would recommend and that has less than 20,000 votes and that either has at least a 7.0 rating or is critically acclaimed.
* If you'd like to suggest a second film, that would be great; in the case that not enough poll boarders contribute a recommendation, I will use second suggestions as well.
* Anyone who has commented at least ten times on either the GS poll discussion pages or the old poll board is invited to suggest a film.
* Please include a brief comment related to why you recommend the film or some little piece of info about the film.
Thank you so much!

Love this, it's the perfect dose of nostalgia that I needed today :)
My first pick: A little known film-noir gem called Gaslight (1944). Been waiting to see this one for a while as it boasts an impressive leading cast in Charles Boyer, Ingrid Bergman and Joseph Cotton and the same director who churned out classics like My Fair Lady, The Philadelphia Story and A Star is born, George Cukor.
My second pick: One that I'm surprised even qualifies for the list based on the low vote count, Scarlet Street (1945). This one starring noir regular Edward G. Robinson and the beautiful Joan Bennett and directed by Fritz Lang, a director who many coined to have pioneered the film-noir genre with his dark, German expressionist style with films like M (1931).
Ditte menneskebarn (Ditte, Child of Man)
Ditte is a female counterpart to Pelle the Conqueror by the same author. The film is a humanist depiction of poverty and a young woman's struggle at the bottom of society. It was released around Europe and in America, but frequently censored.

(Thank you, D.C., who posted a link earlier in the thread, and Peter, who improved upon it.)
I was just going to suggest that perhaps you should edit the poll description to have the question as the first sentence so that it can be considered for the home page (as per #1 at https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/faq-how-to-improve-the-chance-of-having-your-poll-on-the-hom...).
Film provides a nostalgic view of the beginning of the Twentieth Century in the heartland of America. It also commemorates the 1904 World Fair and Olympics held in Forest Park, St. Louis, Missouri. Film also prominently displays Judy Garland’s vocal and acting talent.
