The year 1942 in film involved some significant events, in particular the release of a film consistently rated as one of the greatest of all time, Casablanca.

Box office numbers were reported at the time as a percentage compared to 'normal' business at each theater. For example, Mrs. Miniver performed at 244% while Billy Wilder's directorial debut The Major and the Minor did a solid 155%. This is why exact dollar grosses for the period are unreliable at best.
