Just watched 'Watch on the Rhine'. What a wonderful film! Excellent performances and a very good script, despite the structure issues (especially i the end). I thought that this film would fare even better with the Oscars than it did. I suppose that the similarly themed Casablanca prevented that. Not quite as good as Casablanca, but still a little gem.

I guess I made a mistake.

Maybe you need to update your list below and add Wright.

Oh, you already have! I saw the list yesterday and you did not have her on it.

Ooh. Jean Arthur in The More the Merrier is sublime. I am torn between her and Teresa Wright as who was the best that year.

I must confess that I could never get through For Whom the Bell Tolls so you may be right about Bergman in it. I have seen snippets of it, including her final scene, but the film itself is a chore for me to sit through.

I don't know whether Paxinou is a ham or whether she is projecting as though she were in a huge amphitheater where she spent much of her career. She was far worse in Mourning Becomes Electra but good in other things such as Rocco and His Brothers, but yeah, Gladys Cooper, Lucile Watson and the non-nominated Una O'Connor (This Land Is Mine) and Jane Darwell (The Ox-Bow Incident) were better IMO.

I did see The Constant Nymph recently. I don't know what was worse, the poor print or Fontaine's performance but she was ludicrous as a 14 year-old, which she played for a good part of the film.

I like So Proudly We Hail a great deal. It's a surprisingly grim film for one made during the war. It also has a special place in my heart because my Mom was in nursing school when she saw So Proudly We Hail, and it was this movie that spurred her and her friends to join the Army -- which is where she met my Dad.

I think all three leads are terrific, and I'm glad that the always delightful Paulette Goddard received a nomination -- she was certainly more deserving than ultimate winner Katina Paxinou (indecipherable ham), but of the nominees I would have gone with Gladys Cooper in Song of Bernadette.

Big, I strongly disagree with you about the actress race that year. Yes, Wright, Lupino and Fields would have been equally worthy nominees, but I love most of the official nominees. And couldn't disagree with you more on Ingrid Bergman -- the film is not successful, but she's magnificent, and as James Agee -- I think -- pointed out at the time, she didn't seem like a Hollywood star at all but a completely self-effacing, unpretentious European actress.


The weak link among the nominees (I've never seen Constant Nymph) is Jean Arthur. But even so, she's a wonderful actress and though George Stevens brings out the worst in everybody -- can't stand that man's movies -- I'm glad she did receive at least one nomination in her career.

What was Colbert's comment?

I saw this years ago and watched it again last year or the year before just after it was released on DVD. It's a good movie, but not a great one. Colbert was better in a similar role in 1950's Three Came Home. Paulette Goddard was good, but an Oscar nomination seemed a bit excessive. Veronica Lake was at least as good as Goddard and George Reeves and Sonny Tufts were also quite good. This was, in fact, the least stiff performance I've ever seen Reeves give.

Just watched 'So Proudly We Hail!'. I thought it was a good movie, and i am suprised that no one has mentioned it in their nominations. Not that it is a masterpiece or anything, but i actrually enjoyed watching it. i also was suprised by a comment made by Colbert's character, which today would be considered anti-american.

The 1943 best actress line-up is easily the worst of the 1940s.

The nominees were Jean Arthur in The More the Merrier, Ingrid Bergman in For Whom the Bell Tolls, Greer Garson in Madame Curie, Jennifer Jones in The Song of Bernadette and Joan Fontaine in the justly forgotten The Constant Nymph.

Missing were New York Film Critics' winner, Ida Lupino in The Hard Way and National Board of Review winners, Gracie Fields in Holy Matrimony and Teresa Wright in Shadow of a Doubt, all three of whom were better than Bergman (incredibly nominated for the bloated For Whom the Bell Tolls rather than Casablanca), Fontaine and even Garson, who was good but by now in serious danger of becoming the female Paul Muni, having played so many great ladies in the last five years.

Box office clout and publicity made it a two way race between Bergman and Jones, whose performance consists mainly of looking wide-eyed and innocent while her co-stars do all the work, when it should have been a two way race between Arthur and Wright.

Finally caught up with the delightful The More the Merrier. Made changes on my list below. Added Jean Arthur to the best actress lineup, bumping off Greer Garson (Madame Curie). Also added Charles Coburn to the supporting actor lineup, bumping off Jack Carson (The Hard Way).
