Adam's Rib - the sixth and probably the best of the Tracy-Hepburn pairings.

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.

All the Road comedies Bob Hope and Bing Crosby made together during the decade.

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.

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.

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: The Time of Their Lives, which is probably their most unusual movie, and Lost in a Harem, because it features the classic comedy routine, "Slowly I turned".
