It's the hope that sustains the spirit of every GI: the dream of the day when he will finally return home. For three WWII veterans, the day has arrived. But for each man, the dream is about to become a nightmare. Captain Fred Derry (Dana Andrews) is returning to a loveless marriage; Sergeant Al Stephenson (Fredric March) is a stranger to a family that's grown up without him; and young sailor Homer Parrish (Harold Russell) is tormented by the loss of his hands. Can these three men find the courage to rebuild their world? Or are the best years of their lives a thing of the past?

The Best Years of our Lives - The Best Years of Our Lives review by BM

Spoiler Alert

Wonderful film, second time I've seen it recently and enjoyed it so. I can remember it way back presumably when it was released and don't remember it having an impact but I was only in my early teens so wouldnt have lived a life! It delt with Important issues and had some very humorous moments and all the characters well acted and had been well cast.

I'd love to buy a copy but HMV don't seem to know about it and I don't do Amazon.
