Film historians often rank 1939 the best year in filmmaking. That year's classics always rank in the top 10 lists of the best.

Among them are "Gone With The Wind," "The Wizard of Oz," the original "Stagecoach," "Wuthering Heights" and others.

How could so many classic films be made in one year? Judy DeBolt shares facts about 1939's films during the First Tuesday series.

 “The Films of 1939: 75th Anniversary and Still the Best Ever” begins with popcorn and Coke served at 10 a.m. Feb. 4 at the Crestview Public Library.  The presentation begins at 10:30 a.m.
