The year 1941 in film involved some significant events.
Dumbo was released, becoming Disney's only big hit in the 1940s and one of the most acclaimed animated films ever made.
Box office numbers were reported at the time as a percentage compared to 'normal' business at each theater. For example, Sergeant York performed at 220% while Citizen Kane did 130% (coming in a surprisingly strong 30th for the year). This is why exact dollar grosses for the period are unreliable at best.
