Adam's Rib - the sixth and probably the best of the Tracy-Hepburn pairings.<br><br>
Also when I think of movies from the forties I tend to think of the movies I watched on TV as a kid on Saturday and Sunday mornings, when the rest of the family was asleep.<br><br>
All the Road comedies Bob Hope and Bing Crosby made together during the decade.<br><br>
Not to mention, Bob Hope made some decent comedies without Bing Crosby during the forties; my favorites are The Princess and the Pirate (with Virginia Mayo as the love interest) and also Monsieur Beaucaire.<br><br>
I also grew up watching Danny Kaye movies: My favorites of his made in the forties are: Wonder Man and The Secret Life of Walter Mitty.<br><br>
I also watched a lot of Abbott and Costello movies - they saved Universal from bankruptcy and made their best movies in the forties. If you don't have the patience for their brand of humor, I recommend these two: <i>The Time of Their Lives</i>, which is probably their most unusual movie, and Lost in a Harem, because it features the classic comedy routine, "Slowly I turned".
