    • January 29 – Pat and Mike (1952) – The peerless teamwork of Spencer Tracy and Katharine Hepburn is the main event of this terrific comedy in which tennis player Kate comes under the management of Tracy, improving her game and their love life.
    • February 12 – Bus Stop (1956) – Marilyn Monroe proved she was a sensational actress when she played a would-be singer in this touching comedy-drama based on the Broadway hit. Monroe gives the performance of her career, which includes an unforgettable rendition of "That Old Black Magic."
    • February 26 – Midnight (1939) – One of the great screwball comedies, this Cinderella story stars the witty and elegant Claudette Colbert (It Happened One Night) as an American stranded in Paris with nothing but her evening gown. Passing herself off as a baroness, Colbert crashes high society.
    • March 12 – Summer Stock (1950) – This underrated musical gem showcases the triple-threat talents of the phenomenal Judy Garland. Here she sings her classic version of "Get Happy," and also does some impeccable dancing with Gene Kelly, plus gives what may be her funniest performance.
