| As relevant today as when it was first filmed
This movie has managed to stay so watchable because the people portrayed in the movie are so real. Strip away some of the obvious 40s references and you get people facing issues that could occur in any era.

Agnes Moorehead's character, Mrs. Emily Hawkins, is alive and well and living in your city. Look at how some of the comments after Sept. 11 reflect the same mean-spirited mindset her character displayed.

More than a mere war story, this is a great character study, one that should be viewed several times, the more you watch it the more you get out of it.
