Synopsis Perhaps the most memorable film about the aftermath of World War II, THE BEST YEARS OF OUR LIVES unfolds with the homecoming of three veterans to the same small town. The leads all touch emotional truths: Myrna Loy seems able to express longing, joy, fear and surprise--mostly with her back turned--in a particularly poignant welcome home. The movie never glosses over the reality of altered lives and the inability to communicate the experience of war on the front lines or the home front. A landmark achievement. WWII vet Harold Russell, who lost his hands in the war, is the only person to win two Oscars for the same role, Best Supporting Actor and a special Oscar for bringing hope and courage to his fellow veterans through his appearance.THE BEST YEARS OF OUR LIVES was an original selection to the Library of Congress National Film Registry in 1989. This was the first picture for Harold Russell, a nonactor and war veteran who was an actual amputee. His performance brought him critical acclaim, and the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor as well as a Golden Globe award for Best Non-Professional Acting. He was also given a Special Academy Award for bringing hope and courage to his fellow veterans through his appearance in the film.Wyler tackles issues of greed, disability, post-traumatic stress and marital crisis with admirable subtlety.
