"Heartwarming [and] Priceless.A Masterpiece."-Boxoffice

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 seven 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).
