Description
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?

Featuring a brilliant cast that includes Myrna Loy and Virginia Mayo, this postwar classic garnered eight Oscars, including Best Picture. Heart-wrenching, touching and "filled with emotional dynamite" (The Hollywood Reporter), it remains "one of the best films about war veterans ever made" (American Movie Classics Magazine).

    Comments about this product:

    It's the of WWII and the men are returning home. This story about three men is classic. Suddenly, they're home from all the horror of war to peace. Trying to adjust to it is what the story is all about. It's timeless. Men having been returning from war for decades, comeing home to...to something different then they left. You'll love this movie if you've ever known a combat vet.

                    As a combat veteran from Vietnam, I know that this film never ages. From the way veterans are treated and then forgotten when they come home, this film depicts the problems faced by GIs with relationships, adjustments and PTSD. I can relate to the veterans' point of view, and this film is still relevant today -- even though it is over 60 years old.

                                      I'm so glad I have TCM to get the movies I love.
                                      Thank you.

                                        This movie tells a story about the aftermath of War, in a way I have never seen.

                                            Makes you realize what problems/issues that our troops face returning to civilization.

                                            Great cast of characters - worth watching again and again.

                                              Great look back at returning vets from WWII. You can feel both the vets and their families emotions of happiness, uncertainty, longing and more. Great story. Would highly recommend this movie.
