The Show-Me State Movies
The Show-Me State is the official nickname of Missouri. There are several stories concerning the origin of the "Show-Me" slogan. The most widely known story gives credit to Missouri's U.S. Congressman Willard Duncan Vandiver for coining the phrase in 1899. During a speech in Philadelphia, he said: "I come from a state that raises corn and cotton and cockleburs and Democrats, and frothy eloquence neither convinces nor satisfies me. I am from Missouri. You have got to show me." The phrase is now used to describe the character of Missourians; not gullible, conservative, and unwilling to believe without adequate evidence (source: statesymbolsusa.org). Missouri became the 24th state of the United States of America in 1821. These movies have a connection with Missouri. They are (partially) filmed there or it's a topic in the story.

Happy 75th Birthday (Favorite 1939 Film)
The films released in 1939 are 75 years old this year. Which of these notable 1939 films is your favorite? Of this poll, IMDb Daily Poll Board member ElMaruecan82 said: "I think this is a terrific idea, but not because these films are turning 75 this year but because they happen to be from the greatest cinematic year ever: 1939. I believe the year deserves a little tribute in your descriptive text, something reminding us that Hollywood's Golden Age reached its pinnacle in 1939, before the Old World would forever collapse under Hitler's tanks ... like a last gasp of brightness, life and colors before the dark."
