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).

        I have seen this several times and am glad to have it to my collection. The actors are memorable and have a lesson to impart as well. It reveals the story told during the times and it is informative on that end.

            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.

                                          This film follows 3 men returning home from the war and how they readjust to home, jobs, love, and the world. It is a wonderful film. They use an actual man who lost his arm in the war as one of the men that is followed in the film.

                                            I agree with Betty Davis: This is the best movie ever made, and for so many reasons. If you are interested in how much the core values of our country have changed, watch this movie.

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