The Year at the Oscars series returns!   Tonight, we pick up where we left off, and journey back to 1944.  With the U.S. now deeply embroiled in World War II, moviegoers were certainly seeking an escape, and does that explain why the feel good musical Going My Way ending up winning Best Picture?   We'll discuss the other films that came out and were memorable from 1944, as well as revisiting the news and music of that year, and conclude with a detailed discussion of Going My Way and whether it deserved the Best Picture prize of 1944.
