The year 1944 in film involved some significant events, including the wholesome, award-winning Going My Way plus popular murder mysteries such as Double Indemnity, Gaslight and Laura.

Box office numbers were reported at the time as a percentage compared to "normal" business at each theater. For example, Going My Way performed at a massive 264% while To Have and Have Not was a hit at 173%. This is why exact dollar grosses for the period are unreliable at best.
