1940- Fantasia

1941- Dumbo (yes, even with the crows)

1942- Casablanca

1943- Der Fuehrer's Face

1944- Henry V (by default; Branagh's version is much better)

1945- Nothing.

1946- Nothing.

1947- Nothing.

1948- Bicycle Thieves

1949- The Rabbit of Seville

Best:

1940- Fantasia

1941- Citizen Kane

1942- Casablanca

1943- Der Fuehrer's Face

1944- Henry V

1945- Nothing.

1946- Nothing.

1947- Nothing.

1948- Bicycle Thieves

1949- The Rabbit of Seville

Honorable Mentions: The Great Dictator (1940), The Jungle Book (1942)

I thought I had seen--or at least liked--more movies from the 1940s than this. One film from 1946 that I'm not a fan of is It's A Wonderful Life.

Though my favorite of the decade is easily Fantasia, Casablanca and Citizen Kane are close contenders for what I believe to be the best.
